In 2019 he released a solo single called "Big Drip" that gained traction widely. The single was eventually remixed by both Lil Baby and Quavo. Thanks to the remixes, the song received RIAA Platinum certification.
"Big Drip" was the featured song on his EPs "Pain and Love" and "800 B.C." and helped Fivio gain attention from major record labels. He soon signed a reported $1 million contract with Columbia Records, under the imprint of Mase's RichFish Records label.
In 2020 Fivio was featured on the Drake song "Demons" and the Lil Tjay song "Zoo York." A month later he was named as one of XXL's 2020 "Freshman Class."

About a week after Fivio's debut album "B.I.B.L.E" was released, rival NY-affiliated rapper Tekashi69 posted a trailer touting his forthcoming return to music in which he described himself as "the KING OF NEW YORK."
Fivio responded by Tweeting:
" 5 Billboards in Times Square, Top 5 songs in NY on Apple at once, articles in both Daily News NY Times. Don't ever let that n***a say he the King Of this city. "
In response, Tekashi brought up Fivio's late friend, TDott Woo, who was murdered in February. He also pointed to a report that claimed Fivio's album only sold around 29,000 copies in its first week, despite heavy promotion and major featured artists like Kanye West.
On April 15, Tekashi posted a video to Instagram in which he continued to take not-so-subtle digs at Fivio. In the video Tekashi showed-off large amounts of cash, purportedly around $1.3 million, plus roughly a million dollars worth of vehicles parked outside of a Florida mansion. Tekashi taunted Fivio by saying something along the lines of "I have your entire net worth in my trunk right now" (paraphrased).
