Debut Single and Collaboration

Building on their early triumph, 5five released their debut single, "Bull (4 better 4 worse)," as part of Batman Samini's Appietus compilation. The collaboration with Samini further showcased their versatility and ability to adapt to different musical environments. Although Pappi had previously made cameo appearances on mixtapes, the mainstream radio had yet to embrace his talent fully. Despite this, his music drew inspiration from abstract thoughts, which he effortlessly translated into his lyrics and paintings.
