Partly due to his label, promoter, and distributor 88rising, Rich Brian’s new album is the number 1 charting song on the iTunes hip-hop section.
Not only this, but Rich Brian serves as the first ever Asian to chart number 1, making pure history for the culture. His unique drill-rap flow shown throughout his album gains him a top spot, even having a major cosign with his feature from Offset on “Attention”.
88rising made the news public via their Twitter, and we can see the hype regarding the Indonesian rapper. Ever since his breakout track “Dat Stick”, his evolving sound is giving him an edge in respect to his style and his growth. Let’s expect a ton of content from Rich Brian in 2018, along with a lasting career after this history-maker continues to reach milestones.
