Rain was in the forecast for the final day of Rolling Loud New York, but instead the 55k+ attendees of Rolling Loud New York 2021 were treated to beautiful fall weather, the sun poking through the clouds for much of the day before a slight drizzle at night. The autumn breeze carried sounds from all three stages across the festival, transporting the music of rap’s biggest names from Citi Field out to the Long Island Sound.
The night ended with a spectacular performance from Travis Scott, who closed the night with his usual spectacle, but before he took the Deleón Stage, fans were treated to standout sets from artists ranged from gritty mafiosos like Griselda to hyperactive SoundCloud risers like SoFaygo to flex-heavy trappers like Young Dolph and Key Glock. Saturday’s fest had an unmistakable NYC flavor, with performances from fan favorites like Lil TJay, Fivio Foreign, A$AP Ferg, and risers like Rah Swish, DUSTY LOCANE, and more.
Founded by Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif, Rolling Loud’s second foray into the Big Apple continues the festival’s mission to bring back live hip-hop after a too long absence. In December, Rolling Loud returns with Rolling Loud California, bringing headliners like Kid Cudi, J. Cole, and Future, and many more of the best rappers on the West Coast and beyond.

After recently performing his first few live shows in 2021, and appearing on the critically acclaimed album DONDA, Fivio Foreign has returned with “Story Time” – a raw tale touching on the environmental circumstances of a young, incarcerated youth. Listen to the AyooAA, SavBeats and 808k Antares produced song HERE. Based on a true story, the music video shot and directed by Alonzo Hellerbach follows Fivio and a tale he knows all too well. With drive and determination, Fivio is constantly proving that he will keep delivering no matter the circumstances.
17-year-old Russian recording artist and TikTok sensation Kostromin has tapped fast rising Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign for a remix of his massive chart-topping global streaming hit, “My head is spinning like a screw,” to be made available across all digital streaming platforms via Legacy Music/The Orchard.
Shortly after re-emerging in the “Self Made” music video, Fivio Foreign just dropped his first official single of the year. Produced by Kenny Beats, and shot in his hometown of New York City, Fivio rolls through the city before taking over Grand Central terminal alongside Mellow Rackz. Watch the “Unruly” visual directed by John Tashiro HERE. As he gears up to release his upcoming project, Fivio Foreign gives a glimpse of what’s to come this year.
The new generation of rap royalty Lil Tjay, Polo G and Fivio Foreign release the official video for their hot new track “Headshot” today. Watch the artists live lush and lavish in the grand Reel Goats directed video.
Fivio Foreign is back with long-time collaborator AXL Beats in new song “Trust“. Starring himself and with a cameo from late friend and fellow artist King Von, the music video directed by JLShotThat sets the tone of the song with Fivio Foreign’s close knit group of friends and associates.
As Lil Durk’s labelmate, King Von, rises in the rap game, there’s one thing I can tell you he’s not about to do– change who he is. In his latest video, “I Am What I Am” featuring Fivio Foreign, Von is making it known exactly who he is and after watching, I can assure you that he (and my boy Fivio) are not ones f*ck with.
Feeding off each other’s energy, King Von and Favio Foreign light up Chicago’s O-Block with their electric chemistry in “I Am What I Am”. Evoking the chaotic DIY energy of the earliest Chicago and Brooklyn drill music video, the two emcees confidently trade bars as they sip Henny, count cash, and whip around in a Rolls Royce Wraith, promising a bad time for anyone who looks at them the wrong way.
After the RIAA certified gold breakout hit “Big Drip” hit the streets at the tail-end of last summer, Fivio Foreign has spent the past year solidifying his space in rap music. Now, before his debut album with Columbia Records, and shortly after being named one of XXL’s Freshman Class 2020 – the magazine’s annual list of brightest artists to watch – he returns with a new song “13 Going On 30” listen HERE.
As Fivio Foreign looks back at his year in the music video, the song tells an even deeper story, showing a different side to the often charismatic Brooklyn-born artist. As he gears up to release his debut album, Fivio shows no sign of slowing his momentum.
