Back on topic: I recall the word 'swag' to mean freebies or competition prizes since the early 90s, long before it's latest hip-hop resurgence - for example 'swag bag' being a bag of free goods that were given to you for publicity. It isn't a new term, and I'm only guessing it's based on the concept of leaving an event with goods you don't feel you deserve.

Well, it's rather brutal here. Right now we are advising all our clients to put everything they've got into canned food and shotguns.
According to the Series of Tubes the term swag now means:
apperance ,style ,or the way he or she presents them selves.
The way in which you carry yourself. Swag is made up of your overall confidence, style, and demeanor. Swag can also be expanded to be the reputation of your overall swagger. You gain swag, or "Swag up", by performing swag worthy actions that improve this perception. A person can also "swag down," by being an overall pussy and garnering negative swag for their actions. Swag is a subtle thing that many strive to gain but few actually attain. It is reserved for the most swagalicious of people. Swag can also be quantified, with point systems existing in some circles of friends.
What the frakk?
This is the most honest explanation IMO:
A stupid saying that's overused. People 90 per cent are dumb teenagers, 10 per cent are little ass kids trying to be cool use it for EVERYTHING and also as their facebook name thinking that shit's cute: 'I just opened a cabinet, SWAG.' 'I just fell down, lol, SWAG.' 'SWAGNIFICENT' '(your name) idontgiveafuq gotsswagg' 'lives in swagtown' 'works at swagville' 'That show was so SWAG.' 'I just finished brushing my teeth, SWAG.' 'Hey guys, just woke up, SWAG.' 'Lol, I got kicked out of class, SWAG.' 'I cursed the teacher out, SWAG.' 'Tumbling on tumblr in class, SWAG.' '(your name) the swag god' 'texting in class, SWAG' ... 'SWAG.' You don't have no motherfucking swag.
