“I always had the mindset I wasn’t going to make it because I’m Asian – and no Asians ever make it.”
These were the thoughts that sat in the mind of Indonesian singer NIKI when she was growing up aspiring to be an artist in America. However, her beliefs were not unfounded — while there are many talented artists of Asian descent, few have broken into the mainstream.
Talented Indonesian hip-hop star Rich Brian has made history for being the first Asian artist to land number 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Charts.
The viral internet wonder formerly known as “Rich Chigga” achieved the phenomenal feat with his newest album, “Amen”, which was released under Asian management label 88rising on Friday. His latest project’s release came a month after his decision to change his name. Seen as a sign of maturity, the move was widely welcomed in the hip-hop community.
