Back in April, Fivio Foreign released his latest EP 800 B.C. (Before Corona), which saw 8 tracks from the Brooklyn drill frontrunner and collaborations with Meek Mill, Lil Tjay, Lil Baby, and Quavo. Over the weekend, the New York rising star unveiled a visual from the project for “Issa Vibe,” which sees production from Dutch producer Yamaica and centers around Fivio’s usual subject matter:
“Motivation, money is all we makin’, most of these n***as is always hatin’, that’s why I keep me a 40 waitin’, ayy, that’s all I’m sayin’/
If I call my n***as, they puttin’ pain in, he gettin’ money, it didn’t change him, he gettin’ money, it didn’t change him, took him a little time, but he was patient/
Every time she with him, she get anxious, now look at all the talent that they wastin’, that ain’t sayin’ s***, forty s*** for Henny, that’s when I’m drinkin’/”
The video shows Fivio, his crew, and plenty of eye candy living it up at a high rise party, further solidifying his success as one of the leading rappers out of the Big Apple right now. During a recent interview with Peter Rosenberg at Hot 97, Fivio Foreign explained his career beginnings, which at one point involved a deal with New York hip hop legend Ma$e, paying additional respects to Diddy as well:
“I had a song called “Blixky Inna Box” with Jay Dee and Dee Savv. Jay Dee has signed and got locked up...so Ma$e looking for somebody to sign. He was hip to the sound, to the Brooklyn drill sound... So he wanted to sign me, Jay Dee, Dee Savv on the “Blixky Inna Box” song. ... So after Jay Dee got locked up ... I think he did three months at the time. In those three months, I met up with Ma$e. I ain’t even really think to look over the contract too much.”
