Published on
July 4, 2024

The music industry is undergoing a revolutionary change with the integration of AI technology. While it's now becoming known that big names like French Montana and Trippie Redd are incorporating AI-generated beats into their tracks, one artist was ahead of the curve.

Enter Fivio Foreign, the up and coming rapper from Brooklyn, who partnered with SOUNDRAW to create his groundbreaking track "Doin' me". This collaboration was one of the first to showcase the potential of AI in music production but also demonstrates how established artists are embracing this technology to push creative boundaries.

Who is Fivio Foreign?

Born Maxie Lee Ryles III in Brooklyn, Fivio burst onto the hip-hop scene as a drill rapper with an energy that's impossible to ignore. His breakout hit "Big Drip" in 2019 wasn't just a song – it was a moment that put the industry on notice and helped bring Brooklyn drill music to the mainstream.

Since then, Fivio's been unstoppable. He's shared the studio with rap royalty like Drake, Kanye West, and Lil Tjay, each collaboration adding to his growing legacy. But what really sets Fivio apart is his authenticity. His tracks aren't just songs; they're raw slices of Brooklyn life, served up with a beat that gets under your skin and stays there. His talent hasn’t gone unnoticed – in 2019, he inked a seven-figure deal with Columbia Records, marking a major milestone in his career.

What sets Fivio apart is his authenticity. His tracks aren't just songs; they're vivid snapshots of Brooklyn life, delivered with a unique blend of hard-hitting rhythms and catchy melodies. This distinctive style has earned him both critical acclaim and chart success, with his feature on Kanye West's "Off the Grid" reaching the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Beyond music, he's known for his community involvement in Brooklyn, adding depth to his public persona.

Fivio's rapid rise, his ability to push the boundaries of drill music, and his commitment to authenticity made him an exciting partner for SOUNDRAW. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with an artist who's not just riding the wave of drill music, but actively shaping its future.

“Doin Me” - One of the First Major Rap Songs Made with AI

Doin Me' is where Fivio's explosive energy meets SOUNDRAW's cutting-edge AI beats, and the result? Pure fire. We're talking about a track that's quintessentially Fivio, but with a twist that's pushing drill music into the future.

Here's the cool part: SOUNDRAW’s AI doesn't just spit out random beats. It's like having a professional producer that crafts beats based on exactly what you tell it. You input your preferences, and boom – it delivers beats that match your vision. For 'Doin Me', we worked with Fivio to dial in the right sound, and the AI delivered beats that felt like they were made just for him.

Now, you might be wondering, 'What makes SOUNDRAW different?' Well, for starters, all the beats are copyright-free. That means no headaches over licensing. Plus, we're big on ethics – our AI is trained on music created by our in-house producers, not by scraping random tracks off the internet. And for the other producers out there? You can dive deep, grabbing stems and tweaking to your heart's content.

Creating 'Doin Me' was a real collaboration. Fivio didn't just show up and rap over some AI beats. He was in the thick of it with our team in Tokyo, helping us fine-tune the AI inputs until we nailed that perfect sound. The end product? It's Fivio's raw talent and our AI's precision coming together in a way that'll make your speakers thank you.

This track isn't just a song – it's a glimpse into the future of music production. It's proof that when human artistry directs AI capabilities, the possibilities are endless.

Shaping the Future: AI's Impact on the Music Industry

The collaboration between Fivio Foreign and SOUNDRAW isn't just about one track – it's a glimpse into the future of music production. As AI technology like ours becomes more prevalent, we're seeing a shift in how music is created, produced, and even consumed.

For artists, AI-generated beats offer a new world of possibilities. It's not about replacing human creativity, but enhancing it. Artists can explore new sounds and styles more quickly, pushing the boundaries of their genres. For up-and-coming talent, it levels the playing field, providing access to high-quality beats without the need for expensive studio time or equipment.

For the industry at large, AI is opening up new business models. We're seeing the emergence of AI-assisted music creation platforms, new forms of music licensing, and innovative ways to personalize music for listeners.

However, this technological shift also raises important questions. How will AI impact royalties and copyright? Will it change how we value musical skills and creativity? These are challenges the industry will need to address as AI becomes more integrated into the music-making process.

One thing is clear: collaborations like ours with Fivio Foreign are just the beginning. As more artists embrace AI tools, we expect to see a new wave of innovation in music. It's an exciting time for creators and listeners alike, and we at SOUNDRAW are thrilled to be at the forefront of this revolution.
