Rapper Rich Brian is a child of the internet.
“My skin complexion and where I’m from doesn’t mean anything — it’s me as a person.”This doesn’t mean Rich Brian shies away issues of race.
“I am proud of the fact that I’m Asian.
There was a point in the early part of my career I didn’t want to be called [an Asian rapper] because I didn’t want to be boxed into that.
… I didn’t want people to focus on race and I want to make art that I personally would listen to if I were just another rapper,” Rich Brian said.
