Jim Jones, Rowdy Rebel Update a Harlem Classic With ‘Still Reppin Time’ Video
At their height, Jim Jones and the Dipset crew were really good at making street anthems out of simple mantras. Jones' unforgettable 2006 hit 'We Fly High's' is one example. The songs were of a time, but the mottos are timeless. In 2014, the Harlem rhymer is 'Still Reppin Time' with rap newcomer Rowdy Rebel.
Jones and Rebel pull back a bit on the floss and double up the aggression with their claustrophobic black-and-white video and gritty verses.
When it's reppin' time, Rebel isn't too concerned with obeying the law. "When it's reppin' time, I order some extra nines," he raps.
It's a decent cut, but the main takeaway is that even though Bobby Shmurda (who makes an appearance on the video) is the entertainer, Rebel is the muscle.
