Rich Chigga Is No Longer Rich Chigga
A new year, a new Brian.
Viral rapper Rich Chigga is from 2018, with a new name and new music. The Indonesia-based artist has officially changed its Rich Chigga nickname of "Brian", which is taken from his birth name, Brian Imanuel. To consolidate the change, Brian has also released the "see Me" on the same day.
Brian announced the news via Twitter on Monday (January 1) and referred to his old stage name as an error.
"Yes, I now go by 'Brian'," he wrote. "I've been planning to do this forever and I'm so happy to finally do it. I was naive and I made a mistake. new year, new beginning, happy new year."

The teen rap sensation is true that has taken the subject with your name for some time. In June of 2017 interview with the New York Times, said that it "regrets" the naming of himself Rich Chigga, expressing their disgust at the racially charged humor behind that name.
"That's really the reason why I hate it," he said. "Has the race in it."
The single "see Me" also means a change. It is more personal and reflective than Brian's previous work and is away from the comedy based on the character fans saw on "Dat $tick". His debut album, Amen, is expected to arrive on 2 February.
