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!

    A lil Old School something something about this anthem. A strong drum boom underlying triumphant brass, and a melodic, lyrical rap celebrating self-empowerment, success, and being Asian in the industry. If you're bored of SoundCloud mumble rap, this is the track for you. When he finally name-drops Tupac, you think "yeah, that's 'bout right".

    Attention (ft. Offset)

    Witty in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way; described by one critic as "ironic" yet transcendent of irony. You'll double-take on a couple bars, all smoothly delivered in that fast monotone, and smirk. The beat is trendy and slick, and Rich Brian's flow becomes very Migos; Offset's verse slots right in.

    Arizona (ft. AUGUST 08)

    Chill, breezy and summery. The chorus makes me want to drop everything and just hop in a car and drive through sunlit maize fields and the red red deserts of the titular Arizona. The perfect hook for a sunny day where you want to forget all your responsibilities and just laze with your friends.

    TITANIC (ft. Jackson Wang)

    A dark, catchy trap banger. The hook is breathy and sexy, and the bars are very-give-no-f*** Rich Brian's run-on flow in the final act hits. The heavy electronic beat is intense - you can't help but bop your head to the rhythm.

    A retro dance banger - evocative of the best 80s dancefloor anthems (and the Weeknd's recently dropped acclaimed After Hours)! Incredibly catchy: perfect to run to, jam to, or drive 20 above the speed limit to. It's just a shame the clubs (or gigs) aren't open - because this would easily make the crowd lose themselves.
