Brooklyn drill rapper Rowdy Rebel has released new single and video “Woo Nina.” The video has been directed by G-Train (French Montana, Matt Ox) and is set in Rebel’s hometown of Brooklyn.

According to the press release, “‘Woo Nina’ is an energetic drill rap anthem from Rowdy, an arbiter of the subgenre and one of its most tenured and prolific ambassadors. His jovial, rambunctious energy—which he’s previously attributed to his Caribbean upbringing—is evident from the onset of the track, as he belts ‘Wooooo Ninnnaaa’ to signify his bouncy entrance. What follows is a masterclass in Rebelnomics: brash declarations of loyalty (‘I’ll never cross my n****s for no bread!’), subtle-but-sharp wit (‘Do you see any purple in my head?’) and love for GS9 (‘Shoutout Bobby [Shmurda]… he did that damn time”).

Besides a few overhead car shots, the video generally sees Rebel and his buddies rapping and busting moves on the street.

“’Woo Nina’ follows, and somewhat contrasts, Rowdy’s previous release ‘Rowdy vs. Rebel,’ a more solemn look at Rowdy’s character, which sometimes prefers to ask forgiveness rather than permission,” reads the press release. “’Rowdy vs. Rebel,’ which has amassed 1 million views, leans into the rapper’s storytelling and his ability to craft a narrative, while “Woo Nina” serves as a reminder that at any moment, Rowdy is available to fulfill his role as an OG of Brooklyn’s current-gen rap scene.”

Rowdy Rebel Takes to the Streets to Woo Nina: The “Woo Nina” single is out now.
