When I think of Black Fortune I tend to think of high-energy, brash bangers a la his last LL feature “Keith Sweat” or my personal favorite “Katrina.” His latest release, “Nothing To Lose,” caught me off guard. The DMV emcee showcases a different style, but has, nonetheless, earned more than a few replays.
On the first single off his forthcoming album, OSSHLORD, Fortune trades in his boisterous approach for a more melodic style. With a sung rapped style, he floats atop a whurring backdrop from Lil Rich. Even with a more melodic, pillowed sound, Fortune keeps it gritty with his dark, vivid wordplay. It may be a different pace, but it’s equally as potent. Excited to see what else he has lined up for OSSHLORD.
