with Saucelord Rich in 2008. Their sound was first heard heavily on their 2012
mixtape Transformers In The Hood (TNTH). TNTH was presented by international DJ
and Mad Decent curator, Diplo, and garnered much-deserved attention from electronic,
hip-hop, and trap music followers throughout the US and abroad. The vast variety in
genre caught the attention of top DJs like Flosstradamus, Kaskade, Borgore,
DJ Sliink, and Flux Pavilion which led to numerous trap/EDM collaborations.

Sound of Atlanta Rap” and featured the FKi x Key! collaboration EP. On a trip to
LA, FKi 1st discovered artist Post Maloneand began developing his sound. White
Iverson took off as a viral hit in early 2015 and gained over 1 million plays on
Soundcloud within 1 month, leading to a major label bidding war for Post and signing a
record deal with Universal Republic with FKi 1st on board as his executive producer.
In 2016 FKi 1st released his debut EP “First Time for Everything” via Mad Decent
which has over 12M streams and received praise from The Fader,
Pitchfork, Hypetrak, Noisey, Vibe, XXL and more. His next project “First Time For
Everything” (Part 2) is slated for release later this year via Mad Decent.
