88RISING RELEASES HEAD IN THE CLOUDS LP
CREW LP WITH COLLABORATIVE TRACKS FROM RICH BRIAN, JOJI, HIGHER BROTHERS, NIKI, AUGUST08 AND KEITH APE
FEATURING 03 GREEDO, PLAYBOI CARTI, YUNG BANS, BLOCBOY JB, FAMOUS DEX AND MORE.
88rising, the pioneering music and arts collective, have released their long awaiting crew LP Head In The Clouds. While all 88 artists have excelled in their solo careers they've always operated with a crew mentality and it's with this album that they were able to bring that to life. Representing 5 countries in Asia the whole crew (Rich Brian, Joji, Higher Brothers, NIKI, AUGUST08 and Keith Ape) all flew into Los Angeles to record the LP for two and a half months creating a chemistry that can be felt on the album. The LP also features friends 03 Greedo, Playboi Carti, Yung Bans, BlocBoy JB, Famous Dex among others (full tracklisting below). The LP is the next step in the evolution of the already massively successful and respected artist collective. With features in The New Yorker, Pitchfork, Forbes, etc... 88rising have been steadily making a name for themselves as having the most groundbreaking artists from Asia bridging Eastern and Western youth culture.
The LP isn't the only group activity 88rising is partaking in this summer/fall. You can see them all together September 22nd for their first-ever music festival at the Los Angeles State Historic Park with performances from Rich Brian, Joji, Keith Ape, Higher Brothers and special guest performances from Zion.T, Yung Bans, Yung Pinch, LAFF TRAXX (Toro Y Moi & Nosaj Thing) (Los Angeles debut), KOHH (USA debut), Sen Morimoto and more. If you can't catch 88 in LA you might be able to see them on their upcoming 16-city tour kicking off September 28 in Philadelphia, PA making stops in Toronto, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and more before wrapping October 31 in San Francisco, CA.
