Swae Lee goes on Instagram Live with anonymous fan who claims to have his hard drive
The masked individual wants for $150,000 for the missing drive.
In the quest for Swae Lee’s missing hard drive, things have taken a turn for the bizarre. On Friday morning (Dec. 18) the Rae Sremmurd star went Live on Instagram with a fan who claimed to have the drive — which Swae previously offered $20,000 for — and several other items belonging to the rapper. The anonymous fan used a distorted voice on the Live, did not show their face and used the Instagram name @swaeleeharddrive to communicate.
On Live, the fan produced what appears to be Swae’s missing hard drive, his face mask, watch and more — all found within a bag that the artist had lost at the Los Angeles International Airport on Monday (Dec. 14). Looking at the items, Swae said, “That’s what I like to see,” and asked the fan for his Instagram username.
Now, the unidentified individual has taken to Instagram Stories to make a list of demands in exchange for the drive, including $150,000 or a verse from Drake.
“Follow my Twitter too ima start leaking shit on god if he don’t pay for what it’s worth,” they wrote. “I need 150 n up for his music. I’m actually a huge fan. This is really a wild dream come true. Ill give the hard drive back if I could get a picture or a feature with [Drake] & [Swae Lee] together.”
Following the messages, the unidentified fan shared a snippet of one of Swae’s unreleased tracks online. Swae has yet to respond to the individual.
Back when the drive first went missing, Swae sent out a cry for help on Twitter.
“I GOT MY WHOLE LIFE ON THAT SHIT!!!” he wrote, adding on Instagram, “I got 20K for anyone who found my hard drive @ LAX T2 Delta Airlines this morning… All my songs are on there.”
In the following days, Swae upped his reward for the drive to $50,000. However, it seems the “Sunflower” rapper will need to dig a little deeper into his pockets to meet the new asking price.
Speaking with REVOLT, Swae previously revealed he and producer Mike WiLL Made-It had record over 700 tracks together while putting together his forthcoming album, Human Nature.
