Fokis Introducing His New Album With A Verse In German

‘The Switch Up’ featuring German emcee Drive-by, produced by Franz Branntwein is the 1st single from the upcoming ‘Seasons Change, People Too: The Experiment’ project by Fokis.


‘The Switch Up’ is a creative concept that has American emcee Fokis, rapping in German and German emcee Drive-by, rapping in English.

I’ve been touring Germany since 2018 and have connected with the people really well and in the process I also learned a few basic words in German. One day I thought to myself, what if I wrote a verse and had a German rapper say it, and a German rapper wrote a verse for me, to say… so I reached out to my boy Drive-By with the idea and he was all in. It took him 20 minutes to record what I wrote for him and took me 8 hours to record what he wrote for me, but we got it done and had fun doing it.
