Swagg got his start as a streamer back in 2012, but only did it as a hobby until he was forced to quit basketball during college. He firstly established himself as a YouTube content creator before moving on to livestreaming. However, since then, he has built a massive following thanks largely to a combination of his high-level fps skills, teamwork and chilled personality.

This is why he received a sponsorship from Scuf that included him receiving tens of their controllers.
