Last week, I slid down to NYC for Rome Fortune‘s “Get The Guap” video release party. He screened the Jack Stillz-directed visuals at Fader HQ, then showed it again for a much larger audience at Santos Party House that night just before performing it live.
I’ll stop bragging that I saw it early. Rome released it to the public yesterday, and already, the video has been very well-received. The 24-year-old emcee out of Atlanta has been making all kinds of noise since the release of his Beautiful Pimp project in February, and as he stated in my interview with him, “Get The Guap” is the first of what will soon be several visuals off the mixtape.
“Get The Guap,” produced by Dun Deal, is one of the hardest tracks I’ve heard this year, and I’m happy to say I think the visuals do it justice. Stillz didn’t try to do too much with it but effectively captured Rome’s character and the cool, progressive vibe of the track.
