I'm Swayze

from Method Man – Bring The Pain Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Common slang term from the 90s meaning “I’m out of here.” The term is a derivative of the previously used slang, “I’m ghost,” meaning that, like a ghost, the speaker will disappear. In 1990, Patrick Swayze starred in the movie “Ghost” with Demi Moore which obviously changed many rappers lives.

As a result, Patrick Swayze’s name became synonymous with the word “ghost.” Therefore by the transitive property of hip hop “Swayze” = “ghost;” “ghost” = “out of here;” so “Swayze” = “out of here.”

Who says rappers aren’t good at math?
