Despite the relatively small number of singles that Rome Fortune left for us after he dropped Jerome Raheem Fortune early last year, he’s starting off 2017 with two new tracks produced by Chaz Bundick, also known as Toro y Moi. Yesterday, “Leotard” and “BOO MOBILE II” were released via the Atlanta rapper’s Soundcloud. Both will be included on Beautiful Pimp 3, which we can hope has a soon-to-come release.
“BOO MOBILE II” is a rework of Bundick’s “Boo Boo Mobile” where slow verses veiled under creeping Ciara “Body Party” splices and murky 808’s come together. In “Leotard,” the rapper flows over dance textures coupled with satisfying synth stabs that are nostalgic Toro y Moi sounds.
All of this also leads up to Chaz’s collaboration effort with jazz collective The Mattson 2. The project is called Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2, and has a slated release date of March 31st. You can pre-order on iTunes.
