Watch the Toronto rapper’s latest video, shot entirely in Saint John.
Although he calls Toronto home, Canadian rapper Fortunato has a pretty strong connection with the East Coast, collaborating with several artists including Classified’s DJ, DJ IV and Fredericton’s Sean One.
“The East Coast taught me that there was more to hip hop than just what’s hot in Toronto,” said Fortunato. “I found people were very receptive to my blue collar style of rap and extremely supportive. The East Coast took my music to the next level thanks to the artists I was fortunate enough to work with.”
Last week the rapper posted his video for the track Squadron taken from his latest full-length, 2 Bad Dudes, released in February via Urbenet (also check out Blue Collar – produced by Sean One).
Squadron is available on all digital music platforms and 100% of proceeds from sales will go to the wife of Fortunato’s late friend and rap artist, Sean Price.
“When I first found out about the death of my friend Sean Price, I was so devastated I cancelled the trip I was about to take and drank all day listening to his music,” said Fortunato. “Two years later I’ve learned to channel that anguish into positive energy and that’s why I continue to create music for people to enjoy.”
Also, check out the video for the track Don’t Drink the Cool-Aid which features Fortunato and Sean P with beats and production by Sean One.
