That’s right, a year after his video for “Dat $tick” made him an internet meme/sensation, gravelly throated Indonesia-raised rapper Rich Chigga (real name Brian Imanuel) is bringing his 28-date “Come To My Party Tour” to Orpheum on October 24.
Openers and ticket prices/onsale dates have yet to be announced, but it’s a good chance to see the Jakarta-born Chinese emcee up close and personal-like.

who lives in L.A. due to anti-Chinese sentiment in Jakarta, has already expressed regret about his stage name, and recently told The New Yorker that he’d like to be taken seriously as a rapper. It seems like he’s already on his way there. Several prominent rhymesmiths — including Ghostface Killah — have been more than agreeable with odd, yet captivating flow.
"This is my fucking guy." Ghostface said in this video. "That's dope. I like that."
Chigga has also played Miami’s Rolling Loud this spring, so there you go.
