F.Y.I. first gained notoriety in 2010 as part of trio Those Chosen and their collaborations with Grammy award winning producer, IZ Avila, earning them a slot on URB’s 25 Artists To Watch.
In 2012, F.Y.I. collaborated with Ab-Soul on “Dopamine“.
In 2014, he dropped his first solo mixtape Yo! The Places You’ll Go which hit #1 on CMJ’s Hip Hop Charts.
“I met !LLMind after a pre-Grammy party around L.A. and I knew I’d like to murder one of his beats one day,” he says about the new single. “Then that day came and now the world can vibe to ‘Boom’. I made sure to sprinkle some extras on it with the Connecticut homie Front Page coming through putting that Caribbean seasoning on it and then I wanted to be extra sharp with the flows. The inspiration behind the record was letting everyone know that authentic hip-hop does not die. It’s what the people want and what fans of what I do expect from me. Top 5 rap s–t every time I step to the mic.”
