Fivio and Ye have worked together before on the Donda album cut “Off the Grid.” In fact, Ye praised the drill rapper for his standout verse, with Fivio claiming that Ye said he reminds him of Jay-Z. The pair were at dinner with Yeezy, Lil Yachty, Pusha T, among others when Fivio asked Ye who he sounds like. “[Kanye’s] like, ‘Yo, I got it—[Jay-Z],’” Fivio said. “I’m like, ‘Hov?’ He’s like, ‘Hov!’”
Around the time of Donda’s arrival, Fivio told his fans on Twitter that Ye is “doin my album.” Fivio later confirmed to The Shade Room that Yeezy will executive produce the Brooklyn native’s debut album, which is titled The Bible. The album will be arriving next month on March 25.
Fivio dedicated “City of Gods” to 22-year-old Tahjay Dobson a.k.a. TDott Woo, who was fatally shot in Brooklyn earlier this month. “T Dot. That’s my baby boy,” the rapper said. “I never thought I’d be doing this without you here with me. You supposed to be here with me but you gon always be the Prince in the City of Gods. Your name will forever live through me. Long Live Prince T Dot.”
Fivio, who is at the forefront of the Brooklyn drill scene, recently responded to those who want to take drill music off New York radio: “It’s not the music that’s killing people, it’s the music that’s helping n****s from the hood get out the hood,” he told TMZ earlier this week in response to the genre being tied to violence.
