Rich Brian: The thing I always aim to do with my music, especially with The Sailor , [is] I always want to try to bring something new to the table.

I guess the answer to when I figured out I was funny was when I started to get a lot of followers on Twitter [laughs], and how did I figure out the internet so early?
