Swagger........this is a word I've been recently hearing ALOT!!!!!!!

In the white man's english it means:
To walk or conduct oneself with an insolent or arrogant air; strut.
To brag; boast.

In black mans english:
Swagger is to to move with confidence, sophistication and to be cool.
Swagger is to conduct your self in a way that would automaticaly earn respect
To dress in a very stylish and quirkily fasionable way would suggest one is swagger.
mostly known as style, unique part of what makes you different than the other players in a cool way.


I use that word lol and i also change it up all the time to SWAG AND SHWAG, SHWAGGER depending on the mood
