Rowdy Lewayne Williams, (born, August 28, 1969, better known as Ganxsta NIP pronounced Gangsta Nip) is a rapper from South Park, Houston, Texas and a member of the South Park Coalition, which he cofounded in 1987 with Houston rapper K-Rino.[1] In 1992 he released his debut album South Park Psycho. This record also helped put the South Park Coalition name on the map due to world wide distribution from Rap-a-Lot. He also wrote the Geto Boys hit "Chuckie". NIP stands for "Nation of Islam is Powerful" he is also a part of The Nation of Islam.[2] Williams is also looked at as one of the creators of the horrorcore rap genre.


Ganxsta NIP’s first album The South Park Psycho was released in 1992. There was no single to promote the album but it charted at #63 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and sold almost 100,000 copies in the area to land him a deal with Priority Records. His second solo album Psychic Thoughts (Are What I Conceive) charted on the Billboard 200 at #151, at #30 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at #5 on the Top Heatseekers. His style of rap was hardcore gangsta rap with gory lyrical content, which is called horrorcore.[citation needed]

After his 2003 album The Return!!! (of the Psychopath) NIP took a break before making a comeback with Still Psycho five years later. Ganxsta NIP’s most recent album, Psych' Swag: Da Horror Movie, consists of 14 songs and was released on the artist's own record label Psych Ward Entertainment.[3]
