Rome Fortune presented us with the video for “Blicka Blicka” found off the artist’s massive Fool’s Gold Records debut Jerome Raheem Fortune. Taking us out to an arid setting surrounded by wind-turbines, RF brings an infectious dance inspiring narrative placed in the setting of parts unknown where the body shaking rhythms & catchy titular chorus will keep your head & hands moving long after the track has ceased spinning.
The Anthony Supreme & Johnathan Chou video for “Blicka Blicka” features Rome Fortune taking the audience out to a blown-out trailer park from sort of familiar post-apocalyptic reality that sets the tone for the artist’s inner expositions expressed outwardly. “This is my intuition, and it says I shouldn’t be pigeonholed” Jerome states in defiance of any & all who attempt to reduce his autonomy & art, “They said that this shit would be difficult, to make it I needed a miracle, but I didn’t, I did it without you, what did-you think I would amount to?” Fortune brings his own brand of artistic wealth through a desolate plain where he illustrates his comeuppance in a realm of naysayers & other lone wolves finding their own trails in the badlands. In rhetorical alliterations of “who’s the man now,” RF rises up beyond the miracles & doubts to illustrate poetic accomplishments put to a kinetic & addictive arrangement of melodic rhythms. Rome Fortune provided us with the following exclusive introduction to “Blicka Blicka” with the following insights:
