Earlier this month, I picked up Atlanta-based emcee Rome Fortune‘s Beautiful Pimp project – partially due to the eye-opening cover art, partially due to the @HashtagMikeBoyd recommendations scattering my timeline. Long story short, I’m glad I did.
Beautiful Pimp is a very impressive tape, one guided by high-quality production from start to finish in which Rome is able to carve a comfortable niche and develop a consistent voice.
Six of the tracks on tape feature production from Childish Major, perhaps my favorite being the project’s finale track, “Small VVorld.”
I’ve been keeping up with Rome and Childish since I ran through Beautiful Pimp for the first time, so I was excited to come across this new track earlier today. Listen to “Rights For Wrongs,” the title track off Childish’s upcoming mixtape, above. Rome lays some ill bars over the jazzy beat and keeps the energy up throughout while maintaining his laid back flow.
Stay tuned for updates on Rights For Wrongs. Until then, get familiar with Childish if you aren’t and download Rome Fortune’s (aka SPIN Magazine’s #2 Best New Artist for April) Beautiful Pimp RIGHT HERE.
