|ABOUT RICH BRIAN|
The first Asian musical artist to reach #1 on iTunes’ Hip Hop charts, Indonesian rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer, Brian Imanuel Soewarno, better known as Rich Brian, has blazed into the forefront of a movement that’s diversifying and transforming hip-hop culture. One of the leading figures of Asian rap, with more than 3.2 million followers on Instagram alone and over 1.7B+ streams globally, Brian continues to earn broad audiences and critical kudos. Billboard called him a “rap wunderkind,” the L.A. Times praised him as “a phenom… a gifted MC and producer [with an] introspective, authoritative voice,” and Rolling Stone tagged him on its “25 Under 25” list. The 20-year-old, whose singles regularly feature guest artists like Ghostface Killah, 21 Savage and Offset, performs to sold-out shows across North America, Europe and Asia, and festivals including Bonnaroo and Rolling Loud (he’s slated to perform next at the postponed Coachella). Proud of being an Asian artist, still a commodity in short supply, Brian is blazing a path for himself and innumerable others.
