FKi 1st Album, 1st Time For Everything out May 20th via Mad Decent
Producer, DJ and Artist, FKi 1st has announced he’ll release his debut album, 1st Time For Everything on May 20th via Mad Decent. The songwriter and half of the FKi prodution team from ATL is best known for discovering Post Malone and co-producing the viral hit, “White Iverson”, as well as the 2 Chainz song “Watch Out”, amongst many others. Now FKi 1st delivers an eclectic compilation of his own songs with this 6 song release and a new video for his song “For What It’s Worth” featuring Mac Miller-associate NJOMZA.
FKi (Fuckin Kickin It) caught the attention of Mad Decent label head Diplo in 2011, who helped introduce them to the world via their Transformers In The Hood mixtape. Since then FKi has been tapped for production by everyone from Jeremih and Travis Scott to CL and Ty Dolla Sign. With this release, FKi 1st recruited viral hitmakers Post Malone, Makonnen and NJOMZA and newcomers Danny Seth and Elkka, to create a body of work that features his production as well as his songwriting and smooth vocals. 1st Time For Everything also pays tribute to a friend, the recently passed ATL rapper Bankroll Fresh.
In a recent interview with Parlé Mag, 1st said of the project, ” It’s really just a compilation of music I made with my friends. Cause there’s no better music than when you’re making it with your friends.” He went on to advise listeners to give it a fresh listen. “People need to stop having that producer/rapper connection for the negative. Some people do it wrong, you gotta do it right. This is something new and fresh though. Go into it with an open mind.”
FKi 1st is on tour now with Justin Bieber and Post Malone with a DJ set and will make appearances at both weekends of Coachella, playing Diplo & Friend’s Heineken House party on Sunday (1-2pm DJ set). Watch for more from 1st to come soon!
