We at Audible Treats stand in solidarity with the protesters across the country who seek justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. As a company, we are developing a concrete plan of action to combat the deleterious effects of systemic racism and police brutality. Currently, our team members are donating to just causes, marching in the streets, speaking out in public and private, and further educating ourselves about America’s racist past and present so that we are better equipped to call out injustice when we recognize it.
We take our role seriously as a conduit for amplifying voices and stories that tend to be ignored by the mainstream media. As for our day-to-day work of publicizing our artists and their stories, we’re working closely with them to find a balance between their need for artistic expression and their solidarity with the protest movement.
There is strength in numbers. Here is a resource that lists ways you can take action: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

Project: Rah Swish – WOO Forever
The Canarsie-Bred Rapper Shares a New Collection Of Charming and Energetic Brooklyn Drill Heaters
“As the New York City street rap renaissance continues, it seems like new guys are coming around every corner with a banger. Enter Rah Swish, whose latest song, ‘Treeshin’,’ is a stereo system’s dream: bass-heavy, belligerent, and demanding to be cranked to max volume.” – Pitchfork
“New York’s Secret Weapon” – Kazi Magazine
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.

Hailing from Canarsie, Brooklyn, Rah Swish is one of the first to carve out the newfound drill scene in New York City. Rah Swish teamed up with childhood friends to make a rap collective named N.B.A., which stood for “Never Broke Again.” After garnering millions of views on group songs, Rah began to release music as a solo act and built a highly engaged core following with early standout records like “Debo,” “Back Up,” “This & That,” and “Double It” with Pop Smoke. Dropping his first body of work in 2019 entitled “Look What They Started,” Rah quickly began to catapult to new heights with the breakout single “Treeshin’,” which became the unapologetic theme song for thotty activity all over his city and reached 2 million views on Youtube in a matter of months. In 2020, Rah has continued to put New York on notice with standout videos like “Too Much” featuring Bizzy Banks,“War Time” and “Who Run The City”. Rah draws inspiration from 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Drake, and of course, Rah Swish. WOO!
