Today, Brooklyn’s leading star Fivio Foreign has dropped his highly awaited project entitled 800 B.C..
Drill music in New York has been popping off for a hot minute, Fivio Foreign and other names including Pop Smoke and Sheff G are at the forefront of the menacing sound. Taking elements of UK drill and adding their own flavour to it, it’s tracks like Big Drip that caught the worlds attention. Now releasing his brand new project, Fivio Foreign is back to show the world what else he has to give.
Spread across 8 tracks with boast-worthy features from Meek Mill, Quavo, Lil Baby and Lil Tjay, 800 B.C. explores that bass heavy, 808-driven and menacing sound further intertwined with that raw and authentic New York grit.
Kick starting the project with Drive By Fivio Foreign sets the tone for what’s come, laying down hard bars with his signature punching flow and adlibs over the melodic backdrop. Paving the way for two of his biggest hits to date; Wetty and Big Drip, this track run is enriched with energy, infectious hooks and guaranteed to get you moving – both produced by London’s very own AXL! Demons and Goblins see’s the Brooklyn star linking up with no other than Meek Mill – a collaboration we’ve all been anticipating! The pair suit each other’s tones perfectly, Fivio opens the track before Meek Mill flexes his lyrical ability and flow over the skittering percussion. Tracks like Ambition see Fivio teaming up with Lil Tjay, experimenting with a slightly different melodic sound – produced by London’s very own 808 Melo. Although the beat differs ever so slightly melodically, both Lil Tjay and Fivio carry to ride out with their signature sounds; layering a catchy hook with their street poetics atop. Both Awesome and Issa Vibe see Fivio going solo; Issa Vibe captures that drill essence with the use of haunting synths giving it the ultimate overcast feel. Closing out the project, Quavo, Lil Baby and Fivio unite for the Big Drip Remix. With all persona’s in full effect, this hard-slinging, 808-driven track creates the ultimate speaker-blasting anthem.
