Rapping over a self-produced beat, Rich Brian revealed in a press statement that he made the track after “listening to a ton of Three 6 Mafia.” Although the 88rising artist did not cite which specific track or tracks from the Oscar-winning rap group his new single was directly inspired by, it’s hard to miss the quintessential Memphis lo-fi, bass, and percussive sound that Rich Brian incorporated into “Sydney.” “I also wanted to hear myself flexing about my life over some beautiful saxophone,” he adds.
The track also serves as the theme song for the PUBG Mobile Pro League Southeast Finals.
