It is currently unclear if more shows will be announced across Asia Pacific.
bbno$ released his sixth studio album ‘Eat Ya Veggies’ in September last year. The album included the breakout track ‘Edamame’ featuring 88rising rapper Rich Brian, who bbno$ has said was a major influence on his musical career. “I started making music right after Rich Brian popped off and I was obsessed with ‘Glow Like Dat’. My 19-year-old self is still fanboying over ‘Edamame’. I hope everybody rocks with it as much as I do,” the 26-year-old rapper said of the collaboration.
Speaking to NME in a Friends Like These conversation last year about the collaboration, Rich Brian and bbno$ discussed their approach to songwriting, with bbno$ explaining: “It’s not necessarily like you’re writing [about] something [that] actually happened. I just write whatever comes to my brain – and it sometimes works.”
Rich Brian agreed, noting: “I have a certain idea for a bar and then I just write it down. So I have a thing in my Notes just full of one-liners.”
The rapper’s most recent release came in the form of the single ‘pogo’ featuring producer and DJ Diplo, which was released earlier this year on June 24 following his May 20 single ‘Piccolo’ and the April 8 single ‘mathematics’. bbno$ has since hinted that a new single titled ‘Bumble’ is in the works, sharing a snippet of the song to his followers in social media while asking for opinions.
bbno$’s Asia Pacific tour dates so far:
