Published Dec 19, 2017Though he's set to put a wrap on another year full of single releases, Rich Chigga is already looking ahead to 2018 with the announcement of a debut project.
Taking to Twitter today, the MC born Brian Imanuel revealed that a release titled Amen is set to arrive February 2. It marks Imanuel's first recorded project as Rich Chigga since going viral with "Dat $tick" in 2016.
This past year saw Imanuel deliver five singles: "Back At It," "Gospel" with Keith Ape and XXXTentacion, "Glow Like Dat," "Chaos" and the 21 Savage-assisted "Crisis."
Amen's cover art, seen above, doesn't feature Imanuel's stage name. Since rising to stardom, Imanuel has called the name Rich Chigga "corny" and has acknowledged its racial implications, leaving the possibility of a name change on the table.
As he told The Fader last year, "[The name] just started from me making my first song. I was talking to my friend about it back then like, 'Damn. What should I name it?' And my friend was like, 'Let's pick the most controversial shit ever.' I didn't really know what I was doing and I definitely did not know people were gonna pop off like this. Now I'm kind of stuck with this. I might change it in the future, I don't know. I hope I can do it."
