We’re proud to announce that Rome Fortune will drop his debut Fool’s Gold LP Jerome Raheem Fortune on February 26th. Following a series of acclaimed mixtapes and collaborations with everyone from OG Maco and ILoveMakonnen to Four Tet and Toro Y Moi, Jerome Raheem Fortune is Rome’s most honest and powerful project to date. Over loose, dreamlike tracks from longtime collaborator Cubby, Rome gets extra real about his struggles: his parents, his children, and their mothers… his dreams, his demons, and the drugs that may be fueling both.
Slow and funky new track “Love” is a deep dive into all the feels Jerome Raheem Fortune has in store, a powerful ode to Rome’s kids who keep him going even at his lowest. Get “Love” and Kaytranada produced single “Dance” instantly when you pre-order the LP now (and stay tuned for new “Dance” remixes from Brenmar, Richie Souf and more!)

Rome Fortune’s debut Fool’s Gold single “Dance” gets trapped out with a larger-than-life remix from rising Atlanta producer Richie Souf, just named by Complex as one of their 2016 Producers To Watch. Richie’s buzz is strong thanks to songs with ILoveMakonnen (“Where Your Girl At?”) and MADEINTYO (“I Want (Skr Skr)”) but this flip of “Dance” might be his most epic track to date, trading the original version’s uptempo bounce for oozing synths and half-time 808s that push the auto-tuned melancholy of Rome’s verses front and center. Stay tuned for more “Dance” remixes leading up to Rome’s new album Jerome Raheem Fortune, out 2/26 on Fool’s Gold.

Gladiator can’t stop moving. High-powered sets around the globe have earned lifelong LA friends Daniel Goodman and Ian Johnson an international #SQUAD of loyal fans, while dance superstars (Skrillex, A-Trak, Major Lazer) and urban upstarts (Kehlani, Kid Ink, Dej Loaf) keep calling for the duo’s magic touch on remixes and collaborations. It’s been a whirlwind trip so far, but Gladiator’s new Transit EP (out 1/22) is a true milemarker: deeper songwriting, crazier sonics, and an even stronger distillation of that Gladiator spark. They channeled all the adventures of a non-stop life into five very cool, very chunky original tracks, with fellow journeymen Vindata, Mark Johns, Four Color Zack and more coming along for the ride. Won’t you join them?

Alvin Risk takes another leap into the unexpected with his new release “Beastmode” on Fool’s Gold. The title track is a moody, hybrid jam built around insane vocals from Odd Future’s Hodgy Beats, constantly morphing breakbeats, and what might just be a late contender for the year’s craziest bassline. Premiered on Complex, listen to Beastmode now!

Meyhem Lauren is a true school Queens, New York original. After dropping outerboro knowledge jewels around the globe on tour with Action Bronson, he’s back home and repping harder than ever with the upcoming free album Piatto D’Oro on Fool’s Gold.
Premiered by Stereogum, “Bonus Round” is a taste of what’s in store: smoothed out samples and knucklehead raps (“whole squad tatted up like Yakuza / we ain’t worried ‘bout getting jobs, you fuckin’ loser”) from a Who’s Who of NY rap royalty: Mey, Action, Long Island legend Roc Marciano and king of outros Big Body Bes. Stay tuned for more gems off Piatto D’Oro in the coming weeks!
