Rich Chigga Changed His Name

By HHL JT

Rich Chigga burst on the scene as a novelty.  A 16-year old from Jakarta, Indonesia who learned English by watching rap videos on YouTube and who rocked a fanny pack.

But the kid has some real skills.

His rap name, however, could be seen as "problematic."

So he just switched that up. For now on, the rapper born Brian Imanuel will be known as just "Brian"

Here's what he said about his old name of Rich Chigga last year:

"The name is something I came up with a long ass time ago and I didn’t know what I was doing," he said. "I know a lot of people are offended by it but at the same time a lot of people don’t really care and fuck with it. I don’t think that it should matter that much but it’s understandable if it offends people. I’m definitely not making fun of hip-hop."

Were you offended by "Rich Chigga." Here's Brian's latest track "See Me," which he also produced.
