Rich Brian drops surprise 4-track EP & video for ‘Getcho Mans’ with Warren Hue
The 2 MCs go back-to-back on the new track
To say that 2021 was good for 88rising and its two big stars, Rich Brian and Warren Hue, would be an understatement. If January is any indication, 2022 is going to be better. As Rich Brian quotes from his song in his Instagram post after announcing Brightside, a four-track EP surprise drop, “I reach my goals by January.”
‘Getcho Mans’ is impressive in a few different ways. The first is the back-and-forth wordplay between Rich Brian and Warren Hue. A lot of rappers jump on each others’ tracks and throw a hot 16 on someone’s beat. That’s fairly easy. But to do some tight, interwoven wordplay within the tracks and toss the mic to each other…that’s getting into some Tribe Called Quest/Outkast/Beastie Boys familiarity with each other. Both MCs sound tight on the Trap beat with a bit of Bollywood inflections on it.
The video for ‘Getcho Mans’ is also dramatic. The topless bus ride at sunset in the Nevada desert gives it a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas vibe, while the MCs multiply right before our eyes. They eventually get where they need to go and are washing money, adding Instagram filters to real life, and of course, getting the party started properly.
