Rome Fortune might just be one of the most interesting artists among Atlanta’s new wave of musicians. His image partially falls into the confines of ATL flagrance typified by artist like ILOVEMAKONNEN and Young Thug, but there’s diversity in his braggadocios rapping that you won’t find anywhere in Noisey’s ATLANTA series. He has a unique kind of attitude that means he can have an aquatic blue beard, have a fade that ends in bleached dreadlocks, and wear a sleeveless turtleneck at the same time without ever needing to justify himself.
‘Leaders’, his second collaboration with Four Tet after ‘Lights Low’, is frenetic and positive with too hard of a beat to be construed as preachy, and also comes with a new app (because it’s fucking 2015). The Rome Fortune app is available for free download and looks to facilitate a fans every need to connect with Rome Fortune himself. On it you can get his music, tickets to his shows, wear his beard on your face, and even talk with Rome Fortune himself as it acts as a direct messenger.
Listen to ‘Leaders’ above and download the app here.
