F$O Dinero is an exciting hip hop artist who first came to the public’s consciousness with his track, ‘Blue Bills’, last year. Now he’s back, along with a whole crew of talented vocalists, and two of them, F$O Kash, and F$O Sauce, join him on his latest single, ‘Yaw Yaw’.
Dinero’s clan – the acronym stands for “Fly Shit Only” – have been working together for the past year or so (there’s also F$O Pete, who features on other F$O releases), and have developed a near telepathic relationship in their music.
Hailing from Broward County – not the glitziest area of Florida, but nonetheless it has its own gritty pace and attitude – the crew have developed their own distinctive sound, and ‘Yaw Yaw’ is the first example of what they can do.
The video for ‘Yaw Yaw’ sees Dinero, Ka$h, and Sauce on the campus of Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, lost in a seemingly spontaneous celebration; director Daydream Visuals captures the crew’s youthful energy and enthusiasm, and reflects perfectly the vibe given by the rapid-fire verses and skittering trap drums. There’s special effects, such as lightning bolt-like lines flash above their heads; vocalists appear in doorways, disappearing as quickly; shadows have shadows of their own, in yellow. Their effect is so intrinsic that you won’t even notice unless you concentrate, but they’re there.
