Gilbere Forte, Bengi, Rio and Raak
87 Dreams

If you’re not already on EST, you may want to reset your clocks; on his first Booth feature Gilbere Forte’ informs hip-hop heads worldwide: “This is My Time.” Here, the Philly-based up-and-comer joins up with a Booth-approved neighbor to craft a single expressly designed to wake up anyone’s been sleeping on him. Over a bombastic, bass-booming synth-string beat by the artist and co-producers Bengi, Rio and Raak, Forte makes his grand entrance, dropping bars drenched in pop-referential punchlines: ”Cookin’ up some Wild Things, No Kevin Bacon, never bow down to the pigs, a’salaam alaikum.” Another rising star from the City of Brotherly Love, cheesesteaks and cracked bells, Demand More 2 rapper STS, steps up to the mic to deliver some “smooth as satin” flows on verse two. Gilbere Forte’s confidence is undeniable, but does he have the skills to back up his braggadocio? Only time will tell. If you like what you’re hearing, keep it locked for the latest on his 87 Dreams mixtape, which has yet to receive a solid release date.
