Video: ForteBowie – Impala

Since the middle of last summer, when ForteBowie completely dropped the Daddy Nino handle and chose his current one, “Impala” has been a guilty pleasure of mine. Smooth bassline, everyman style singing from Bowie and a splash of 2 Chainz tossed in for good measure. It was the standout single behind “Decatur” with Aleon Craft […]

Video: ForteBowie – Me 2

While we’re here discussing ForteBowie’s “Me 2″ video, allow me to take the time to breakdown what worked with Something About #Bowie. Bowie’s an Atlanta product who dabbles a bit in production as well as singing and rapping. The triple threat manifested itself in a few quality singles, “Impala” & “Decatur” not to mention the […]

Mixtape: ForteBowie – Something About #Bowie

ForteBowie‘s latest full length offering and follow up to his ÜberEargasms: The Life & Times of David Ruffin Jr. shows that a lot can change in the three months between major releases. First, the Atlanta native has some key names on his sophomore effort including Aleon Craft, Dave Flyer, Stanza, Smitty Oveckin & Jourdyn Lawerence, […]

ForteBowie – Impala x Alive (f. Stanza)

The Atlanta wunderkind is soon to release his Something About Bowie tape tomorrow and with that come the last few leaks before the tape drops in full. “Impala” samples Friendly Fires “Pala” to build around, effectively giving Atlanta car culture the same sort of ride he gave to East Atlanta with “Decatur”. As a bonus, […]

ForteBowie – Decatur (f. Aleon Craft)

On “Decatur”, his folk tale ode to East Atlanta, ForteBowie lets his down home country vocals do the talking over a rather simplistic cowbell & guitar combination. With his lady busy making her name known on the other side of town, Bowie & Aleon Craft waste no time putting up the missing posters for a […]

Video: ForteBowie – The Thesis

A New York fitted, classy piano keys and guitar strings allow ForteBowie to deliver “The Thesis” and the video keeps its main focus in line and doesn’t stray elsewhere. Something About #Bowie is set to drop in July.

ForteBowie – 3 Stax Back

Surprised to see that ForteBowie is the first person to actually take Meek Mill‘s strongest track to date (and Self Made Vol. 1‘s most memorable song) to commeorate the legacy of Atlanta native and arguable greatest to ever do it Andre 3000. While this won’t end up on Something About #Bowie, it’s a freebie to […]

ForteBowie – The Thesis

The metamorphosis from Daddy Nino to ForteBowie is made complete on “The Thesis”, the latest leak from Bowie’s upcoming Something About #Bowie. The self produced cut has made the rounds over the internet with Bowie’s ever increasing popularity, meaning even though we were on the bandwagon from the jump – we appreciate the man making […]

Daddy Nino – Stranger (f. Jhené Aiko)

A pleasant surprise in 2011, Jhené Aiko‘s .sailing soul(s). tape held strong in regard to traditionalist R&B with brute honesty and a little sass to back it up (see “Hoe” featuring Miguel). Much in the same vein as her lifting Kanye West‘s vocals for “Sailing NOT Selling”, Daddy Nino does the same as he takes […]
