Atlanta’s most vivid rapper is back.
Rome Fortune’s been a favorite here at FACT since 2013’s outstanding Beautiful Pimp. His ability to skate through genres – jumping from ATL rap to near-EDM and back again – characterized his debut album Jerome Raheem Fortune, which appeared earlier this year on the reliable Fools Gold imprint.
Now he’s back with another crucial mixtape, VVORLDVVIDE PIMPSATION, and he sounds hungrier and more charged than ever. Boasting production from Toro Y Moi, BloodPop, DJ Spinz, C4, Awful Records’ Ethereal, iLoveMakonnen and others, it’s a starry collection but one that’s held together by Rome’s effortless charisma.
Listen to the tape in full below, and check out Chris Kelly’s interview with Rome, where Rome details life after rap and shines a light on his diverse debut.
