This past weekend, Jamojaya premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival. Directed by seasoned actor and filmmaker Justin Chon, the film depicts a story of a growing gap between father and son. Brian stars as a young, up-and-coming rapper who wants to hire a manager and a music label from the United States to take over the reins from his father, played by Yayu Unru, who has guided his son’s career as a singer from start to fame. Most of the scenes in Jamojaya are in the Indonesian language. 88rising CEO and Co-Founder, Sean Miyashiro also contributed to the film as an executive producer.
‘Sundance Freestyle‘ notably follows Brian’s recent, self-produced track ‘VIVID featuring $NOT‘. The breakup anthem features the rappers trading verses in a hypnotic volley, dissecting relationship ups and downs. Complex raved how on the track “Brian effortlessly switches between his low-pitched, distinctive rapping voice, and more angelic singing vocals.” Brian also recently headlined 88rising’s fourth annual, flagship Head in the Clouds festival in Los Angeles last August to an audience of over 35,000 and the festival’s globally expanded stages in Jakarta and Manila in December 2022.
‘Sundance Freestyle‘ is out now via 88rising / Warner Records,
