Rich Brian has surprise released a brand new EP entitled Brightside.

The four-track project features a sole guest appearance from 88rising labelmate Warren Hue. Brightside is Rich Brian’s love letter to rap and serves as a reminder to listeners that at his core, he is still very much a rapper. “while doing melodies are fun, I wanted to remind people that I still love to rap. It’s short, it’s not an album but I see it like a mental note of how the past year has accelerated my growing-up process as an artist & a person,” he shared in a statement.

Rich Brian’s last full-length release dates back to 2019’s The Sailor, which featured guest appearances from Joji, Bekon and RZA.

Elsewhere in music, Kanye West was spotted leaving the studio with Big Sean following their controversial Drink Champs interviews.
