88 Rising, the record label comprised of superstar Asian artists, have dropped their first Album consisting of 17 tracks with collaborations from artists from the label such as Keith Ape, Rich Brian (Formerly known as Rich Chigga), Joji, Higher Brothers, Niki, and August 08. Additionally, the album includes features from big artists like Playboi Carti, Famous Dex, GoldLink, Yung Bans, 03 Greedo, BlocBoy JB, and more!
With the vision to legitimize Asian artists in the mainstream North American music industry, 88 Rising brings together the Higher Brothers, a Chinese hip-hop group from Chengdu, China with BlocBoy JB and GoldLink on two separate tracks. The merging of Chinese and American hip-hop has created an unprecedented sound that is unlike nothing North America has ever heard before.
“This project of love has artists from eight different countries around the world, we are proud of that,” 88rising wrote on Instagram. “We are also proud that we are repping Asia to the universe — it’s wild to think back when we were growing up, something like us never existed. We are here now.”
