Rich Chigga Hops on Remix of ZHU, Skrillex and They.’s “Working For It”
17-year old Indonesian rapper Rich Chigga jumps on ZHU, Skrillex and THEY.'s hit single “Working For It” for the remix. Rich, who is never short of charisma, spits bars about women, money and haters. The east-meets-west as Rich spits bars over bouncy production.
"All I want is the money/Pockets a little jammed because it got a little chubby/Never go out on a limb/Not your friend, not your buddy/seven zeros be the flow," he raps.
The collaboration between ZHU and Skrillex’s smooth production and THEY.'s vocals for the original single made the record addictive. Now with Rich Chigga rattling off lyrics at a rapid pace, the record definitely has a different feel.
A lot has changed for Rich Chigga when he started rapping in 2014. He went from kicking around bars with his friends to hopping on a record with Ghostface Killah. Two years later into the craft from then, he took hip-hop by storm when his video “Dat $tick” went viral.. We spoke to Rich about his early stages of becoming a rapper.
"I started writing raps in 2014. I wasn’t even uploading it on SoundCloud yet, I was just writing for fun because I lost a dare with my friend and my friend said write a rap," he said. "So I was writing, and the first song I wrote rhymed and I was like, “Shit, this is really fun.” So I just recorded it using my iPhone and put it together using Sony Vegas, which is a video editing program. That was my first song and a lot of my friends liked it so I just kept on doing it. And I started to upload it and posted it on Twitter."
Rich Chigga is making his U.S. debut at the Rolling Loud Music Festival in Miami. He will be performing alongside Kendrick Lamar, Migos, Travis Scott, Future and Lil’ Wayne. Additionally, he is slated to perform at Insomniac’s Middlelands Festival alongside Major Lazer, Rae Sremmurd, Louis the Child, Kaskade, and many others.
