The Canarsie-Bred Rapper Shares a New Collection Of Charming and Energetic Brooklyn Drill Heaters
With a booming basso voice and personality to spare, Rah Swish is getting ready to take over the streets of New York. Continuing the tradition started by his close friend Pop Smoke, Rah shares WOO Forever, his new project. Favoring skittering drums and wobbling bass, Rah Swish’s brand of Brooklyn drill gets a lift from the emcee’s crackling energy even as it tackles the realities of street life. The young emcee rhymes with palpable energy, deliberately delivering cadences in rapidfire bursts of syllables and filling every bit of negative space with wild ad-libs (“WOO”). Rah’s new project features previously released tracks like “WOO Forever” (142k Spotify streams since its official release in early June) and “Tongue Out (Treeshin’ 2)” (the sequel to Rah’s biggest hit), pairing them with new highlights like the triumphantly emotional “Feel Like Pop” and the ice cold “Slide Show.” Featuring appearances from Jay Gwuapo and Curly Savv, WOO Forever is available everywhere via WOO Entertainment/EMPIRE.
Earlier this week, Rah showed another side of his personality with BK Belly, a new short film (or #WOOVIE). The new film pays homage to Hype Williams’ 1998 film Belly, a cult classic that featured DMX and Nas in starring roles, lovingly recreating the original’s plot and iconic moments (including the use of Soul II Soul’s “Back To Life” over the opening credits) with a Brooklyn twist. Directed with style by Poke & Tone of the Trackmasters, who produced tracks for the original film’s blockbuster soundtrack, BK Belly follows Rah as he schemes, strategizes, romances, and kills in an attempt to take over the Brooklyn streets.
Honoring the memory of his close friend Pop Smoke even as he builds his own legacy, WOO Forever is Rah’s first project since last year’s debut Look What They Started. Stay tuned for much more from the Canarsie native as the year moves along.
