Broadcast journalism alumnus gaining fame as local rap performer

When you first look at Logan Herlihy, he looks like your typical college student. He has a charming personality and makes himself approachable to all with his comedic-like humor. Put Herlihy in front of a mic, and he turns into his rapper pseudonym: Swagga Blanco.

Last Friday, Herlihy took the stage at Café Annie during the 2012 Florida Music Festival. Herlihy had the crowd bobbing their heads to his lyr

ics of his original tracks and covers of popular hip-hop songs. He lit up the stage with his hype man Chas “Case Closed” Case, a senior history major at UCF, and DJ Pat Coe, a Full Sail University student.

Swagga Blanco is a name that is slowly starting to creep into the Orlando rap scene. Herlihy is a 2011 graduate from the broadcast journalism program at UCF and was also a founding father of the Sigma Pi fraternity. It was not until recently that Herlihy started taking his unique way with words, passion for writing and love for music to a whole new level with the recent release of his album What the Ladies Want on April 20.
