Both Flock and Fivio are in peak form on their latest release, staying true to themselves while elevating the drill sound with thoughtful bars and uncharacteristically chill production by NYC staples Alau and ElvisBeatz – tastefully infusing an ethereal female vocal sample with drill’s signature asymmetrical drums.
For the “Make a Movie” visual, Flock and Fivi enlisted Ring Ring Visuals to do just that. Borrowing a page from Fivio’s impressively cinematic “Story Time” from last year that helped open the world’s eyes to a more reflective take on the drill sound, they paint a detailed picture of what it takes to rise from nothing in the Bronx’s unforgiving streets, presumably modeled after Kay Flock and close collaborators like Dougie B and B-Lovee.
Fans of the genre will recognize familiar faces in the movie theatre crowd as Fivio delivers his verse, including Flock’s aforementioned right-hand man Dougie – often acting as his sturdy stand-in since he’s been behind bars – as well as Sosa Geek and the ever-controversial Asian Doll.
It also can’t be a coincidence that the video’s main character keeps looking to Kay Flock’s “Being Honest” for inspiration, one of his gentlest and most important songs that showed the city there was more to the young Bronx driller than meets the eye.
Since he first caught fire early last year following the release of “Brotherly Love” with Dougie B and B-Lovee, for better or worse, Kay Flock’s name has been synonymous with Bronx drill. Despite being behind bars, he continues to carry the torch for the Bronx, bringing his borough’s signature sound to the world with huge collabs like “Not in the Mood” with Lil Tjay and Fivio, “Being Honest” Remix with G Herbo and most recently “Shake It” with Cardi B – in what was probably his most important co-sign yet.
Hopefully, Kay Flock will be able to overcome his current predicament so he can keep dropping hits and putting on for the Bronx.
