2LP, Limited Edition, Bone and White Vinyl
88rising (2023) US
2023 marks the five year anniversary since the pioneering music and arts collective 88rising released their inaugural crew album Head In The Clouds. In celebration of this landmark moment, 88rising presents a colored vinyl 2LP reissue of the album.
While all 88rising artists have excelled in their solo careers, they've always operated with a crew mentality and it's with this collection that they were able to bring that to life. Representing five countries across Asia the crew – Rich Brian, Joji, Higher Brothers, NIKI, AUGUST 08, and Keith Ape – flew into Los Angeles to record the album for two and a half months in 2018, creating a chemistry that can be felt throughout. The album features standout hits "Midsummer Madness," "History" and "Head In The Clouds" and A-List collaborations from Playboi Carti, GoldLink, 03 Greedo, BlocBoy JB, and Famous Dex among others. 88rising have been steadily making a name for themselves as having the most groundbreaking artists from Asia bridging Eastern and Western youth culture.
