Fivio Foreign and Kanye West’s relationship has only grown since Fivio’s standout verse on “Off The Grid” from the Donda album. Not only did the album debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, it also gave Ye his ninth consecutive No. 1 chart topper.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Leakers on Power 106, Fivio broke down his appearance on the record and revealed Kanye gave him a huge compliment after turning in his verse.
“I go Ye, who I remind you of? Who I remind you of?” Fivio recalls. “He like, ‘I don’t know, that’s a good question.’ The question went past so I guess we start eating or whatever. Then something hit him. He go, ‘I got it! Hov!’ I’m like, ‘Word? Hov?’ He say, ‘Hov!’”

The JAY-Z comparisons for Fivio tie together a bit of Brooklyn history between the two rap heavyweights.
Although Hov and Kanye’s relationship seems to be on better terms after the Roc Nation mogul’s verse on “Jail”, it remains to be seen whether the two actually come together for the rumored sequel to their 2011 joint album Watch The Throne.
Not long after Fivio’s “Off The Grid” verse became public, fans immediately wanted Fivio and Kanye to work together more. After one fan wrote the two needed more songs, Fivio responded Kanye would be responsible for his debut album.
