Rich Chigga made this name making comediac trap music with a very questionable name given his Indonesian roots back in 2016. Just looking at the name gives you all the information you need. While his stock has continued to rise, Brian Imanuel has been stepping away from the music of his past to start crafting more serious, meaningful music. With his debut album Amen due out on February 2nd, the popular rapper announced yesterday that he will be changing his stage name to Brian. In an interview at the end of 2017, Brian spoke on choosing his name stage name Rich Chigga: “I do regret it — I didn’t really know what I was doing and I definitely did not know people were gonna pop off like this.” With the shift in music and his new name change, he appears to be better suited to take things to a higher level.
To kick off the year, he also shared a brand new single ‘See Me’ and you can stream that below.
