Rome Fortune – Beautiful Pimp
You fucked up big time if you haven’t heard this project. Atlanta is pumping out the most consistency in the country right now, and Rome Fortune is a testament to how diverse the music scene is down there. Childish Major (who did “U.O.E.N.O.”) has production credits on about half the songs on Beautiful Pimp, and his sheen contributes to the clean aesthetic of Rome’s sound. You’d think that other appearances behind the boards by DJ Spinz and DunDeal would make this just another trap mixtape, but it’s anything but.
If you’ve been at the right parties in New York this year, you’ve heard DJs drop “Get The Guap” plenty of times. Rome keeps it lean on every track – not a single song exceeds 4:00 and he’s not cramming syllables where they don’t fit. He lets tracks breathe and focuses on hooks to glue his songs together. The industry is watching this young man with a close eye.
