OTW Perspectives: Gilbere Forte

blame it on Shake December 11, 2013

Fresh off their episode with Fashawn, Vans’ OffTheWall.TV continues their “Perspectives” series with Gilbere Forte. During his time with the camera, the Midwest emcee takes us through LA’s Bronson Canyon as he speaks openly on his childhood, musical influences, debut album and creating “Audio movies.”

In my teenage years, I said, ‘how could I create that same emotion that I get from compositions in these films with a hip hop backdrop? How do you make the perfect feeling in a song? How do you create an audio movie?’ I’m really taking the time to learn myself before I even write the music; I want to feel everything because I want you to feel everything when you listen to the music.

While you wait for the debut, Gilbere’s latest project PRAY is available for your listening pleasure.
