Over the past year or so, Rome Fotune has perused a slightly unstable life from a jail bid to having a child all while balancing a growing rap career. The Atlanta native touched on all of this on “Love,” the second single from his upcoming Jerome Raheem Fortune LP after the Kaytranada-produced “Dance.” Following a third single, the catchy banger “Blicka Blicka,” Rome searches for some stability and enlightenment through a debut rap album.
Released via Fool’s Gold Records, Jerome Raheem Fortune lands in at 11 songs sans features. After Kevin Gates was surprisingly successful in dropping his debut LP with no features, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more artists seeing how far their brand can push them. It’s obviously been done before — dropping a debut with no features — but I wouldn’t mind it becoming a regular thing. Prove yourself.
