Earlier this year, 88rising released their debut album as a collective, Head in the Clouds, allowing each individual member a clear standout moment to shine. One of the most immediate favorites to emerge from the record's tracklist was Rich Brian's formidable solo track, "History," and now he's given that song the dramatic R&B-inspired video treatment it deserves.
Directed by Brian himself, alongside James Defina, the "History" video sees the rapper attempting to win back his ex. It doesn't go quite as planned, however, and eventually Brian is rapping in the rain just like the best '90s R&B artists always did. It's the perfect reminder of just how good Head in the Clouds is, too, offering up an excellent excuse to revisit the project.
Rich Brian has been busy on tour with the rest of 88rising, while also appearing alongside his friend and fellow 88 member Joji in First We Feast's new series Feast Mansion. In the latest episode of the weekly cooking show, Joji and Brian were joined by Yoya Takahashi, the renowned sushi chef behind L.A.'s Hamasaku, who teaches the boys how to make omakase-grade fish from the comfort of their Hollywood Hills home.
