Rich Brian has released his new track, New Tooth, and the music video for the track is a nod to 2011 martial-arts action thriller The Raid. The Raid is an Indonesian film directed by Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans, and it's a film that's full of violence and gunfights.
The Indonesian-born Rich Brian chose to pay homage to the film in the clip for New Tooth, which he directed and edited himself. Brian's bars on New Tooth capture the struggles of carving out a career for himself, and the aggression of his lyrics are replicated in the video's energy.
Throughout the video for New Tooth, Brian plots his revenge, and things get intense. There are more than a few guns involved, and a SWAT team even gets involved in a shootout. If you're a fan of action films, then chances are you'll enjoy the visuals that Brian's put together.
Speaking about the track, as well as the video, Brian says, “I really took my time on this song & I think it was worth it. The video was very fun to shoot & edit I feel like I went back to my 2011 filmmaking days, shoutout to Jason Ano.”
Check out New Tooth below. The video for the track comes after the announcement of Rich Brian's upcoming acting debut in Justin Chon's film Jamojaya, where Brian will play a rising rapper whose increasing success leads to a confrontation with his father.
