Few creative craftsmen can maneuver their music through the overpopulation of pride-driven punch lines and fraudulent freshness to penetrate the strict perimeter placed around today’s hipster heavy Hip Hop movement. The dance-dominated demographic of young emcees visibly emerging among a short list of premier penmen exposes the vulnerability of quality verses and passion potent vocals. Content can render popular persecution if not assuming the radio ready formula. Yet, with the prominence of abstract artists like Kid Cudi and Mike Posner complimenting avant garde rebel rappers such as Kanye West, there is a proven vacancy for versatile talents who vow to remain true self and create brilliantly skillful reels of reality.
20 year-old Atlanta-bred beat machine and hip-hop hybrid ForteBowie rightfully resembles all three through his fusion of sheer emotion and evident hunger, with witty wordplay and dynamic delivery. Classic samples lay the platform for an eclectic ensemble of productions that properly inspire raw recaps and true testimonies of a youthful genius-- vividly expressing the thrills, trials, and triumph that accompany chasing a self-made promise to pursue a purpose greater than life itself.
ForteBowie’s debut single “Weak” is a smooth, verbally rich rendition that samples the late Michael Jackson and pulls from the SWV 90’s classic “Fall Down”—featuring an old-school flashback flow and Dilla-inspired rum pattern.
His forthcoming project UberEargasms: The Life & Times of David Ruffin Jr. is an edgy and unique presentation that will take listeners on a tour through the mind of a fast-rising music maven.
