What are swangs you ask? Swangs also known as swangers to some are rims made famous in Houston TX. These are usually on a car that is intended to be a slab. Unfortunately, a lot of people simply put a set of swangs on a car and call it a slab, when it isn’t. It takes much more, but that’s another story. On this site however, swangs are a way of judging an album. Swangs work similar to mics in the Source magazine with 1 swang meaning you suck to 5 swangs meaning you holding. We figured it was a cool way to judge albums and represent Houston.
