Video: Rah Swish – “50 Bars Pt. 4”
The Canarsie Native and Associate of the Late Pop Smoke Shares His First New Song Since Dropping His WOO Forever Project Over the Summer
“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

With an authoritative mic presence and a solider’s mentality, rapper Rah Swish crafts booming bangers for New York City streets. Continuing his longest running series of hard-hitting heaters, Rah Swish shares “50 Bars Pt. 4,” a relentless single-verse drill cut. With an apocalyptic beat courtesy of H2O, Rah dances between sliding 808s and syncopated handclaps as he comes through with colorfully aggressive bars: “I’ll make a funeral, shoot up the service/I’m tryna help ’em see Jesus in person.” In the video, directed by GucciTutz, Rah and his WOO associates take over Los Angeles, sipping syrup and mobbing outside the Staples Center, where the Lakers and Clippers play. “50 Bars Pt. 4” is Rah’s first video since the release of “Feel Like Pop,” the Canarsie native’s tribute to his late friend Pop Smoke.
Rapping with an infectious energy, Rah steamrolls tracks with the force of his personality, adding a buoyancy to his reality rap rhymes. The rapper showed the world what he was capable of on WOO Forever, released earlier in 2020. Populated by his rapidfire flows and wild ad-libs (“WOO”), WOO Forever proves that Rah Swish is ready to carry the flame for Pop Smoke and keep the WOO alive. The project features previously released tracks like “Tongue Out (Treeshin’ 2)“ (the sequel to Rah’s biggest hit) and “WOO Forever,” which has over 1 million combined streams. With appearances from Jay Gwuapo and Curly Savv,WOO Forever is available everywhere via WOO Entertainment/EMPIRE.

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!
