According to a Rolling Stone profile of the Atlanta-based rapper, “Swims” is an acronym for “Someone Who Isn’t Me Sometimes.”

See that as you will, but Teddy—who just released "Tough Love" this year—appeared on James Corden a few weeks back, and is taking the record on tour this year.  Before heading to Europe, the 29-year-old starts things off in Ft. Lauderdale, followed by a stop at Ybor City’s Orpheum, for what may very well turn out to be his only show in the beloved space (the venue announced plans to move out of the historic district).

Tickets are sold out, and opening for him will be his friend, R&B artist Stephen Day.
