Raised partly in Gainsville/South Dallas, Swagga Jonez AKA Budha, has come to the forefront by uniting a smooth R&B flavor with the thunderous bass and rock-hard lyrics of Rap. His independent label, Off Da Trill Records, has released his debut album, “Intro to Budha”.
Budha has contributed to several songs prior to his debut album release. He was introduced to the business at a young age; when he was included on track 5(entitled “We Right Hea”) of the album MVP’Z Most Valuable Playaz 2000 along side Alcapone (Hustle and Flow) and E 40. In 2006, Budha was a featured artist on E-40’s album “Ghetto Report”. The song was “Yee” featuring Too Short and Budha; it was produced by the well known artist/producer Lil Jon. Budha has also worked with other artists such as Money B of Digital Underground, Bun B, Paul Wall, and Sam Bostic (producer of Heavy In The Game “Me Against the World” for Tupac.)
In April of 2008, Budha’s song “Real Talk” (also known as “Party”) was included on the album “Sick Wid It Umbrella 2, The Machine”, which was produced by one of San Fransisco Bay area’s super-producers known as Droop-E.
Budha does not limit himself to music alone; he also has acting aspirations. He appeared in the 2007 independent film Dead Heist as “Mac Henry” along side E-40’s character “Hustle.” Along with E-40, he participated in scenes with Big Daddy Kane and Bonecrusher.
From the hard-hitting bass and lyrics of “Party” to the smooth R&B sound of “For the Ladys” on his debut album, Budha’s versatility and talent are evident. He is sure to have a continued brilliant career in the music business. “Intro to Budha” is available NOWon iTunes, CDBaby, and other media sources for download and purchase.
