Indonesian rapper/singer/producer Rich Brian has releases his introspective and hard-hitting new single “New Tooth” via 88rising. The track acts as Brian’s internal monologue as he fights back on self-doubt, negative impulses, and creative blocks. Listen to “New Tooth” here.
An accompanying music video – directed, scripted, and edited by Rich Brian himself and inspired by police thrillers such as The Raid – features a gripping narrative as Brian stars as a S.W.A.T. officer turned business mogul exacting his revenge on a double cross agent. The 22 year-old continues to showcase his acting chops following the announcement of his big-screen debut in the upcoming film Jamojaya, directed by the critically-acclaimed Justin Chon (Blue Bayou, Ms. Purple).
“I really took my time on this song & I think it was worth it,” Brian explains. “The video was very fun to shoot & edit I feel like I went back to my 2011 filmmaking days, shoutout to Jason Ano.”
Rich Brian is set to perform the first night of 88rising’s flagship Head In The Clouds festival on November 6 in Pasadena. The festival will livestream at http://amazon.com/hitcfestival.
