HipHopDX Premiere: Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi, pint-size rapper Rene Brown returns to the scene with a Nick Rodriguez-directed video for her Mr. Woovie-produced single, “Savage.” In a March 2016 interview with DX, Brown explained went went into the creation of the song.
“I had a lot of fun with this track and just kept it honest to myself,” Brown said. “I got the production from the Mr. Woovie in the UK, sat in the studio and just zoned out—with all the party favors mentioned in the hook [laughs]. I wrote, tracked and mixed it myself the same night. My quickest records are usually my truest. My inspiration was really just feeling like everything I’ve done up until now has been a warm up and I have a point to prove now. I’m more focused than I’ve ever been so for me, this marks the beginning of me not letting up.”
Brown was featured as an opening act on the Top Dawg’s Oxymoron Tour alongside Schoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad, Vince Staples and Audio Push, which really solidified her relationship with TDE. Watch the new video above.
