800 B.C. (2020) Lyrics – Fivio Foreign

English 145 April 24, 2020

"800 B.C." is the first mixtape from rising American rapper Fivio Foreign, released on April 24, 2020, under the label Columbia Records. The title humorously stylizes B.C. as Before Corona, referencing the global pandemic that has since reshaped the world. The mixtape showcases Fivio's unique style of rap that blends harsh drill drums, intense flows, and intimidating ad-libs, resulting in a compact and powerful delivery of fury and swagger.

The mixtape features several notable guest appearances, including Meek Mill, Lil Tjay, Quavo, and Lil Baby. In addition, the production of the album is handled by a range of talented producers such as 808Melo, Axl, Bordeaux, Non Native, Saman, Szamz, and Yamaica, who create a sonically rich landscape that complements Fivio's rapping style.

Fred Thomas of AllMusic lauds the mixtape for its ability to package Fivio's aggression and bravado into cohesive and powerful tracks. He praises the mixtape's combination of drill-style beats with Fivio's rapid-fire delivery, resulting in an exciting and engaging listening experience. However, Ben Dandridge-Lemco of Pitchfork offers a contrasting view, noting that while Fivio shows potential, the mixtape feels rushed and lacking in quality. He argues that Fivio has yet to prove himself and that the mixtape, while not without merit, falls short of expectations.

Overall, 800 B.C. is a promising debut mixtape from Fivio Foreign that showcases his unique style and potential as a rapper. While opinions on the mixtape are divided, it is clear that Fivio's mixtape is a testament to the power of the drill sub-genre, and we can expect more from him in the future.
