Gilbere Forte releasing soundtrack to his short film called “Pray”

Dynamic Philadelphia based hip-hop artist Gilbere Forte is set to release his latest project, a short film and an accompanying soundtrack called Pray, due out in early 2013. Forte, perhaps best known thus far for his 2010 single “Black Chukkas,” has proven himself as a powerful voice in hip-hop, cemented by his swift emergence onto the scene and his various honors (including being featured on the BET Awards, Fuse and putting out releases with Pusha T and Tyga). He had a brief reconstruction period after signing with Anigma Records, but 2013 may mark Forte’s triumphant return. Along with his college friend and producer, Raak, Gilbere Forte has the potential to keep pushing Philadelphia hip-hop rhythmically and lyrically. For more on Gilbere Forte you can stream his 2012 mixtape YOTD: Year of the Dragon here. Below is the first video from his upcoming release Pray.
