Rich Brian has come a long way from “Dat Stick.” Upon winning the hearts of hardened rappers likeÂ 21 SavageÂ andÂ Ghostface Killah, the Indonesian viral phenomenon has proven his worth as a viable artist. With a solid debut under his fanny pack inÂ Amen,Â Brian continues his quest for hip-hop glory with another new single. This time, the rapper’s subdued baritone is contrasted with an unrelenting, techno-inspired instrumental; to be honest, it’s not the most compelling Brian selection in recent memory. There’s something about the chord progression that doesn’t exactly invite much replay value, but it gets the job done.
Lyrically, Brian’s breaking away from some of the more personal introspection ofÂ Amen,Â in favor of the obligatory “when-I-step-up-in-the-club” anthem. And rest assured, when Brian does step up in the club, it’s nothing short of a spectacle. Showcasing a refreshingly self-deprecating sense of humor, Brian reflects on pulling up to the club in an Uber, bigging up Elon Musk in the process; it wouldn’t be surprising to see the charismatic mogul find himself immortalized in hip-hop lyricism for years to come.
