Lil’ Ricefield “Trapanese”

I can’t remember how we fell upon this song, but my 12-year old says he’s been on Lil Ricefield for a while now. He only has a couple of songs out right now, but from his skills and production, we definitely want more.

I really dig how they go all in on some of the major Japanese American tropes—particularly the Oriental riff. If anyone who reads this is connected to Lil’ Ricefield, give him a shout out from us and tell him we want to collaborate.
