FKi 1st Reflects on the First CD He Stole to the First Song that Made Him Cry

Atlanta producer, songwriter and DJ,FKi 1st (né Trocon Roberts) has been a magnet for platinum records. Among the highlights in his decorated resume include Post Malone’s “White Iverson,” Iggy Azalea’s “Work” and 2 Chainz’ “Watch Out.”

To usher in the release of his new video for “Do What Bosses Do” exclusively on TIDAL today (December 12), FKi 1st reflected on his own firsts below:

First Song: First song I wrote was called ‘Lookin’ Fly,’ featuring my friend, Mickey Factz. We thought it was so cool. My first four-time platinum song [was] ‘White Iverson’ by Post Malone.

First Instrument: Trumpet, but I was mad! I joined band in the 6th grade and I wanted to play saxophone, but they didn’t have any left.

First Live Show: SOB’s in New York with Mickey Factz & the homie, A.CHAL. We go back!

First CD: My first CD was [Dr. Dre's 1992 album] The Chronic, but I actually stole that one… but the first album I actually bought was Kilo Ali Organized Bass on a cassette tape.

First Song That Made Me Cry: ’Everytime,’ Bankroll Fresh. RIP Bankroll #longlivebank

First Time I Knew I Could Do This For a Living: When I finally figured out how to remake Timbaland beats and Lil Jon beats…! And then later when R. Kelly got on the remix of my first big song, ‘Make It Rain’ by Travis Porter

First Tattoo: The cross on my nose.
