Black Scale team up with Philly-based Gilbere Forte on a special set of tracks, looking to be distributed during the tradeshows this week. Mega breaks down the project below:
On our trip to New York I blogged (Meeting of the Minds) about Gilbere Forte’ and introduced him to the world of Black Scale. We are really stoked to team up with this talented artist who resides in Philadelphia who writes his own lyrics but who also creates his own production. With a similar aesthetic we follow by creating art to share with our family, friends and audience we are proud to present Gilbere Forte’ is BLVCK mixtape available for download now on the links below. This project starts here and will also be giving out the mixtape at our booth during the S.L.A.T.E convention in Las Vegas starting this Tuesday and will follow up plastering posters on the streets of Philadelphia where Gilbere Forte’ will open up for Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Jay Electronica a couple days after the Magic/Slate convention. Last week Gilbere Forte’ just finished shooting the video “Black Chukkas” with Chris Robinson (Robot Films) in Los Angeles and we look forward to seeing the finish product knowing that Chris Robinson never disappoints when he creates his music videos. This is just the beginning so look out for the anticipated full length album coming soon.
