Fivio Foreign is one of the most exciting artist out at the moment due to the fact he is spearheading the “Brooklyn Drill” movement. Since the the death of Pop Smoke, the face of the genre has been Fivio. Since 2019, with his breakout single “Big Drip“, he has been building his buzz preparing for this very moment. “B.I.B.L.E.” (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), the debut album from Fivio is finally here for our enjoyment.

I have let it be known on multiple occasions, that Brooklyn Drill is my new favorite genre of music. Whether it be Pop Smoke, Fivio or Sheff G, I am here for it. So when Fivio decided to drop his debut my excitement grew. B.I.B.L.E. is a relatively long album at 17 tracks. So I was expecting greatness when it comes to Drill, yet that was not what I got. Do not get me wrong, the Drill aspect is there, yet the million dollar question is where are the other Drill artists? The first single from the album, “City Of Gods” is extremely dope. It features Kanye and Alicia Keys and pays homage to his city but would have been doper with other artist who specializes in the moment.
Even with it’s short comings, “B.I.B.L.E.” is still an enjoyable affair. So if you are a fan the Brooklyn Drill sub-genre of Hip Hop, this album is for you. Go give this record plenty of spins.
