Fivio Foreign sings “What’s My Name” with Fashion Institute of Technology students


The rapper was teaching a class at the prestigious school in New York.

Fivio Foreign is on fire. It’s been over two weeks since the release of the New York rapper’s debut studio album BIBLE made its way onto streamers, and since then the 32-year-old has received immense love from his contemporaries, friends, and fans.

Like any good artist, Fivi has focused on marketing, sitting down for interviews with the likes of Complex and The breakfast club, just to name a few. Other than that, he’s also tried more interesting tactics like teaching a dance routine to his hit song “What’s My Name” while apparently teaching a class at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology.

Footage uploaded to @theneighborhoodtalk on Instagram shows the father-of-two dancing on the floor in front of a group of young men and women. The “City of Gods” lyricist wore a flashy silver chain, blue jacket and distressed jeans; despite being so well dressed, he still managed to move around and follow the trail with ease.

Other clips included in the carousel show Fivio spending time chatting with FIT students, who have welcomed him into their family. He received an official certificate from the institution, a cap and robe, a hoodie including him in the class of 2022 and many other gifts.

Of the 17 songs included on BIBLE, “What’s My Name” has become an obvious favorite, already amassing over 2.7 million streams on Spotify. The track features “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child, and according to Fivio, he had to clean up some of the lyrics before Queen B erased the sample from him – find out more about that here, and let us know what you think.
