3Fifs – “Big Drip”


A charismatic, bass-y hip-hop sound consumes on “Big Drip,” a single from St. Louis-born, Florida-based artist 3Fifs (Three Fifs). A quick-swiping title-touting hook proves infectious in between the impeccable flow within the verses, complemented by lightly flourishing keys and bass-y rhythms throughout.

The track’s creative process arose when 3Fifs brought his Avatar: The Last Airbender fandom into a freestyle line: “…and I’m aiming for the sky like Appa, nigga, ‘Yip Yip!'” The entire studio were smitten with the infectious verse, and the track’s process began, later complemented by a verse from Eugenius.

A feel-good success with ample bravado, “Big Drip” is a stellar showing from 3Fifs, whose release is also accompanied by a music video (above). The lyrics — referencing both personal confidence and 3Fifs’ mother’s journey from a homeless shelter during her youth into a successful adulthood with a five-acre home — are compelling throughout alongside the contagious beat.

2024 looks to be a big year for 3Fifs, currently prepping a new EP entitled The Middle Passage to release in early 2024.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2023’ Spotify playlist.
