Fivio Foreign’s “Big Drip” is one of the biggest tracks in Brooklyn Drill and the song is the latest to feature on The New York Times’ Diary of a Song series which explores the cultural impact of music.

Fivio Foreign reflects on his rise to fame, recording the track and of course his close friendship with Pop Smoke.

Axl talks about his early beginnings as a producer and how his journey began using a phone. Axl also talks about being able to infiltrate the Brooklyn drill scene very early on – even before he was able to travel to New York.

808 Melo also contributes some gems to the piece and talks about his special working relationship with Pop Smoke and how drill differs from trap.

The video is an engaging, educational and entertaining watch which details the origins of the Brooklyn drill movement and how the UK’s influence can be found all over it.
