Fivio is known for his contributions to the drill and Brooklyn drill music scene. Fivio gained attention for his energetic and aggressive rap style, often characterized by hard-hitting beats and intense lyricism, however, "Same 24" takes a softer approach, though still feeding on the drill rap style, there is a more traditional hip-hop beat sampled underneath confessing to Fivio's advancements in the industry. Elements from the drill genre continue to seep through in the vocals of "Same 24" in which the arrangements are rather gritty and raw in sound whereas the beats are a little less aggressive than usual, letting the themes of the lyrics shine through above all, reflecting the harsh realities of street life and growing out of it. As always, Fivio keeps with his rapid-fire flow and assertive vocal presence which add further intensity to his tracks and draws the listeners in. "Same 24" is a rather more melodic rap from the drill artist but it establishes Fivio's diversity within the genre and willingness to experiment.
