Fivio Foreign Receives His First Grammy Nomination Medal: "I'm Wearin' This in the Video!"



A lot of artists can recall the first time they were nominated for a Grammy. The Brooklyn drill pioneer Fivio Foreign is documenting the entire experience, a symbol of how Grammy Awards rarely arrive in his neighborhood.


On Sunday (March 20), Fivio posted a video to his Instagram account showing his Grammy nomination before explaining how the Recording Academy gives each nominee a gift as a token of appreciation. Through a baby blue wrapped bag, Fivio uncovers a Tiffany & Co. gold medal, with a Recording Academy award on one side and a Grammy nomination on the other.



“I just tryna motivated the people that never been motivated,” he captioned the video. “We Grammy Nominated. I’m the hardest working new artist out.. Just wait for this Album B.I.B.L.E 4/8.”



Fivio Foreign is nominated for his work on Kanye West's Donda, particularly the song "Off The Grid." The 10th studio album by Kanye is nominated for four awards, including Album of the Year, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song and Best Melodic Rap Performance.


Fivio’s focus outside of the April 3 ceremony is his upcoming debut album, B.I.B.L.E.. Due to perfectionist tendencies, Fivio pushed the album back a week.


“My album gon’ be pushed back,” he told his fans in his Instagram Stories. “I pushed it back one more time. This is the last time though, for sure. It was March 25, now it’s April 8. It ain’t really a reason or anything, I just wanted to make that shit perfect. I want it to be the perfect album. That shit is going to be viral. Stay tuned, that shit gon’ be viral. April 8.”
