The Beautiful Pimp shows his sensitive side. 

It didn’t take Rome Fortune long to make an impact in Atlanta rap. He first turned heads with a pair of collaborative mixtapes in 2011 and 2012, but his breakthrough moment was 2013’s Beautiful Pimp. Featuring production by Childish Major, DunDeal, DJ Spinz and more, Beautiful Pimp cemented Rome’s status as one of rap’s most interesting new artists and attracted a host of high-profile collaborators: he’s since worked with Four Tet, ILoveMakkonen, Toro y Moi and Jacques Greene & Ango (albeit in unorthodox circumstances, in that case.)

2014’s Beautiful Pimp II was short, but contained some of Rome’s best music yet, while he continued to develop his connection with DunDeal on Drive, Thighs & Lies, later that year. Punctuated by his own material (including Toro y Moi collaboration ‘Pitch Black’ and a remix of Gucci Mane’s ‘Pillz’), his FACT mix features the same electronic longing that’s at the underbelly of much of Rome’s music. LSDXOXO, Tropics, Suicideyear, Jesse Boykins III and more feature.
