[Hip Hop] GXNXVS – Shapes & Colours (Feat. Rome Fortune)

Shapes & Colours (Feat. Rome Fortune)

Heat up your Thanksgiving week with a hot one from GXNXVS. Featuring Rome Fortune, “Shapes & Colours” is an ominous hip-hop treat. GXNXVS lays the backdrop with a haunting beat that you won’t be able to get out of your head easily. The Atlanta emcee Rome Fortune hops on top of the instrumental with his fiery lyricism. These two artists together are a perfect match, mixing their own styles together with ease for a remarkable rap record that stays true to the genre. We haven’t been on as much hip hop lately, but this was something we couldn’t pass up on sharing.
