Rich Brian is 88rising’s hottest new talent. The 21 year old Sino-Indonesian rapper began his career at the tender age of 15, making Vines and teaching himself English by watching YouTube and listening to hip-hop heavyweights Kanye and Drake and 2 Chainz.

Since then, his music career has soared. leading to collabs with industry veterans RZA (of Wu-Tang Clan, which is a fun bit of #blackandgold communion) and Offset, and K-Pop superstars Jackson Wang and Chungha. And well-deserved too: inspired by Tyler, the Creator and Childish Gambino, Rich Brian’s brand of indie-comma-hip-hop is good vibes all around.

So sit back, queue your music streamer (or record player or CD drive if you’re old school) of choice, and enjoy!
