Back in March, native Philadelphian Gilbere Forte inked a deal with Epic Records after a long while of bouncing between Philly and L.A. pursuing his hiphop career. Today, we get a taste of his forthcoming record in the new single “Nolita.” Like the title track “Pray,” it’s a hugely sophisticated leap forward from his buzz-making early mixtapes. Moody, mysterious and based around a melodious Active Child sample, it’s a stunning opening statement from Forte, making us pretty psyched for the entire Pray LP (out on May 15th) . Listen to it below, and find out more at Forte’s website.
