Indonesian rapper Rich Brian has delivered his latest EP, 1999.
The seven-song offering is mostly self-produced, but also features a few assists from hitmakers Bekon & The Donuts, Diamond Pistols and Louis Bell. Brian had previewed 1999 with the singles “Don’t Care” and “Love in My Pocket.”
“This project has a song for everyone,” the 88rising rapper said in a press release. “One of my favorites is ‘DOA,’ which is basically ‘Dead on Arrival’ for short. It sounds morbid but it’s about competing with someone who has zero chance against you in the first place. The melodies really remind me of Gorillaz, who I love. It’s a song that I always play whenever I wanna feel better about my singing, and myself in general.”
A new video for “Love in My Pocket” also accompanied the EP’s release. In the visual, directed by Daniel Cloud Campos, Brian plays a mad scientist who tries to create a clone of himself, but the experiment goes awry and takes a hilarious left turn.
The new clip follows last month’s release of an “unfinished” video for the same song that made extensive use of green screen. Fans took the footage and ran with it, putting the rapper into scenes of television shows and more.
