If you haven't heard of RXKNephew yet, we implore you to go put on a song from one of his four (four!) projects he's dropped in 2023 while you read this article. Of course, he's an incredibly prolific artist, but the 29-year-old Rochester native boasts much more than a seemingly endless body of work. Neph is a bizarre storyteller, a hilarious presence lyrically and delivery-wise, master of off-beat and ramble flows, and is able to broach harsh topics of paranoia, violence, hardship, and identity through some of the nuttiest, most vivid, and most tough-as-nails verses and beats you'll hear. All that said, that fact that Rihanna might have introduced you to him is an insane possibility, yet that's exactly what she did with her latest TikTok.
Moreover, RiRi's latest contribution on the social media platform is a simple POV clip of her walking. But there's one big factor that steals the show- well, two, if you count the huge diamond ring on one of her toes. Still, diamond flexes are nothing new for the "Diamonds" singer. The TikTok's audio is RXKNephew's track "I Love My Girlfriend." On that track, he takes joy in the fact that his girlfriend is apparently just as wild as he is. "My girlfriend like robbin' n***as," he raps in various voices over a jittery trap beat.

Rihanna Cosigns RXKNephew With Latest TikTok
With Rihanna's new album still nowhere to be seen, a collab with RXKNephew (however unlikely) would be an absolute ankle breaker, and we won't give up on the possibility until it lands. In addition, this opens up a whole lot of questions on whether they've met, how she came across the song, or how she found his work in general. After all, A$AP Rocky is from New York, as well, and he's surely still in tune with much of the underground scene. In any case, if the work of Neph and similar artists like Zelooperz, frequent collaborator Rx Papi, and other is unknown to you, let this TikTok be a sign that there's some homework on your desk.
Meanwhile, the Barbadian singer also showed love to the New York hip-hop of the past as of late. Well, the Wu-Tang Clan is so influential and beloved that it's pretty much always hip-hop of the present. The couple named their son RZA after the legendary producer and continued a tradition in Rocky's family of honoring rap pioneers.
