2013 has been a big year for Rome Fortune. Coming out the Atlanta scene he’s built up significant buzz with his ‘Beautiful Pimp’ mixtape. Frequent collaborators C4 and Childish Major have been lacing him with experimental instrumentals that compliment his effortless laid-back delivery. He was a feature on the recent Gucci Mane joint ‘Stripes’ and just ripped a set alongside PTP family Gila Monster at 285 Kent in Brooklyn.
Outside of his music prowess, Rome is someone you’ll always see expressing his personal style through his clothing choices. When we first met, he told me that he had been a fan of Third Looks for some time, so it’s nice to bring things full circle with this feature. Rome and I had a conversation that touches on hip-hop style, girls and world rap domination.

Geng Grizzly and Mista Whoa
Ill Visuals in the DJ Booth
I took a couple snaps from the Devil Want My Soul Party DJed by none other than Geng Grizzly and Mista Whoa. Really incredible vibe and it was nice to get a room full of people who really knew rap, instead of people who just pretend to (you know who you are). It was one of the most memorable nights for me thus far this year. The ESPN Highlight of the Night was the performance by Atlanta’s own ‘Beautiful Pimp’ Rome Fortune.
Look out for another party with the camp soon. In other news I’ll be appearing on-air tomorrow night (Thursday, Mar 21) on Fresh Out the Box Radio. You can tune in on BBOX Radio. The show goes from 7:30 to 9:30PM and as always expect hijinks and great new rap.

I was invited on-air for last weeks Fresh Out the Box Episode by hosts Geng-Grizzly and Note D and had a blast talking shit on the radio with them. I took these snaps of rapper Rome Fortune and producer Childish Major. They’re real humble , talented dudes from Atlanta and I gaurantee you’ll be hearing much more buzz from them in the coming months. Rome Fortune’s mixtape Beautiful Pimp drops next month so look out for that. Shoutout to Slushie King as well, dude doesn’t slip on his managerial duties AT ALL.If you missed the live airing you can download the archival episode HERE.
