Coolin – [FKI 1$t]

One of hip-hop’s unsung heroes of production, FKI 1$t, drops yet another video from his solo album ‘Tokyo Project’. “Coolin” is the 7th music video 1$t has released off his 8 song project in the last 4 months. I think it’s safe to say each song is getting a visual. The “Coolin” video is very vibrant and has depictions and photos in and out of his life with a floral/forest setting all while enjoying a nice glass of wine. This one puts you in a nostalgic and chill mood and 1$t obviously enjoys the finer things while giving you laid back energy. I feel like 1$t is stepping into his own artist career beautifully and is still one of the most slept on producers in the industry. He worked directly with Post Malone early in his career and helped paved the way for his superstar success with help with songs like “White Iverson”. He has produced for Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Tyga, Travis Porter, and many other big names but now it’s his turn. If you respect true grind and love for music and just wanting to make good-sounding records, you need to follow 1$t. He has a short film …

Velvet – [1$t]

1$t (formerly FKi 1st) has established himself as a hit-maker for some of the industry’s biggest names. While working with artists like Post Malone, Travis Scott, or 21 Savage is impressive, what I love most about the Atlanta native (aside from his producer tag) is the fact that he’s never scared to step outside his bubble and work with artists from all over the world from China, to El Salvador, and most recently Brazil. His next project, however, has an Eastern flair, as it was recorded entirely in Japan; hence the name, Tokyo Project. Set to drop on December 13th, 1$t unleashed the latest single ” Velvet.” In addition to creating the syrupy and subdued (yet potent) track — where 1$t gets both introspective and boastful — the multi-talented artist had time to shoot an effect-laden video that adds a trippy, fuzzy feel to an already textured offering. Good Job 1$t!
