Rome Fortune - "Blicka Blicka"
Rome Fortune's studio album JeromeRaheemFortune was released today, but the Atlanta rapper blessed us earlier this week with one of the singles, "Blicka Blicka."
The album is largely produced by Rome's longtime collaborator Cubby, and you can hear their kinship on this collaboration: Rome is supremely comfortable rhyming over Cubby's arpeggiated synths and dusty drums. When it comes to lyrical delivery, Rome possesses a unique set of skills, and "Blicka Blicka" is case in point. His vocals swoop across the track, swinging from whispered bars to impassioned diatribes. Don't sleep on Rome Fortune—with this tape out, you'll be hearing his name a lot in the coming months.—Graham Corrigan
