|"Is it sawgger or just something else?"|
Swagger is the ability to walk into a room and captivate everyone in it without saying a word. Having the ability to raise eye brows from curious onlookers, get dap from cats for no apparent reason while women keep a close eye just because. It's an aire that can't be explained, you either have it or you don't. In sports they call it the "The It Factor".
It has nothing to do with your style of dress whether you wear suits, jeans or sweat suits. It comes down to the presence of a man. Now my problem is with people that use the term "Swagger" to describe cats that either don't have it or people that are on another level. There are three categories of men; Gimmicks, Swaggers and Role Players.
We don't have to spend much time on the gimmicks because they are just what it says. These are the guys that show up looking like their trying too hard to have some swagger. They aren't authentic because it comes across as being manufactured or fake. They're always dressed up in what I call a costume trying to look like someone famous that they saw on TV. For example, the millions of duns trying to look like Allen Iverson or dress like Kanye West or act like Jordan. Total Gimmicks!
Now the next two categories are very similar and if you aren't paying attention you'll confuse the two. They look the same, walk the same, come across the same way. They even smell the same bruh! However, the difference between the two is MONEY.
"Swaggers" are those guys that walk into a room and the atmosphere changes. Boyz are walking up to them and giving them all kinds of love whether they know them or not. Women want to know who they are and ask their friends or themselves, why don't I know him? They've got "The It Factor" straight up. A flair that can't be taught and everything about them is authentic, no gimmicks or costumes needed, they are the real deal. The question is, can you change the atmosphere in the room when nobody knows your name? That's "Swagger".
However, when you're worth several hundred million dollars, like some of these boyz are, it's not swagger at that point, it's money. Now they needed swagger to become the multimillionaire but at this point they've graduated to "Role Player" status.
When I hear women say that Barack's got swagger I laugh because he's the most powerful dun in the world. If you can't walk in the room and change the atmosphere with all of that power then you need to turn in your Role Player ID. So at this point I'll just hold on to all of this "Swagger" that I've got until graduation day!
Holla At Ya Boy!
