This week’s guest on Critical Juncture is Tommy Swift, a resident of Cherry Hill, New Jersey who’s making a name for himself in the hip-hop scene when he’s not busy adding movie reviews, music reviews and general musings on his blog. Tommy was kind enough to answer our usual batch of questions, and you can show him a little love by visiting his blog known as Tommy Swift: Live and Uncut. Be sure and check out his MySpace page as well, since many of his latest tracks are available for a listen (my personal faves: “We’re in New Jersey, Bitch” and “A Good Kid”.
