First thing you’ll notice about the guy is his signature green-tipped beard, which betrays the Beautiful Pimp’s colorful style. A journeyman rapper, Rome Fortune has made his rounds since breaking in 2013 with Beautiful Pimp, joining tours with Iamsu! and Glass Animals. All the while Rome was campaigning for his spot in New Atlanta, collaborating with Ilovemakonnnen and OG Maco on projects this year. His two feature verses on Toro Y Moi’s new mixtape Samantha are a great introduction to his jazz-influenced style.
We present Rome Fortune as part of our Red Bull Sound Select Series, a part of our ongoing partnership with Red Bull focused on bringing you more innovative artists! Opening up is the electric Cakes Da Killa, DOSS and a DJ set from Manhattan’s Infinity Shred.
