Fortunato Ft Ghettosocks Prod By Fresh Kils

From his freshly released album Unseen Armada comes Toronto’s Fortunato with his brand new video “Stop It” featuring Juno nominee Ghettosocks and producer Fresh Kils. In the video below these boys can be seen speeding through time in some trippy visuals directed by Dan Jardine and spitting a clear message… If your sound ain’t dope jump off the bandwagon.

Artist BIO: Fortunato is no stranger to the hustle and from the beginning he had to grind hard to prove his talent and stamina in the hip-hop scene. Born and raised in Toronto’s West end he dropped his first album in 2008 and began freestyle battling in 2001, since winning tournaments in both Beastmode and KOTD. He credits his proudest battling moment to KOTD’s Proud 2 Be Eh MC Tournament in 2012 where he took down three MCs to take the championship.

With hard work comes success and Fortunato has made prestigious moves touring with Onyx and collaborating with Sticky Fingaz and Johnny Rourke on a track called “100MAD” as well as tracks with B.C.C’s Tek and Juno Award winning producer, Scarcelli. If he didn’t work so damn hard you could say he was fortunate but everything that comes Fortunato’s way is well deserved. He has been seen taking the stage alongside rap majors such as AZ, Freeway, Sean P, Smif N Wessun, M.O.P and PMD.

Fortunato has recently released his fourth studio album Unseen Armada, produced by Juno nominee Fresh Kils and will be touring North America in support this year making stops at CMW, NXNE, Indie Week and more.

Directed by Dan Jardine. Mixed and Mastered at THE KILZONE in Toronto, Canada

1st Verse Fortunato:
I’m in survivor mode walking with a line of hoe’s
you wanna know how I do this then read the liner notes
I’m in the time before land
wait a minute what?
I’m fucked up chugging these bottles
you need a sippy cup
don’t give me lip you fuck I’ll make you do the chicken strut
leave you twitchin when I hit you up
then I twist it up
smoked out in the whip
spliff on my f*ckin lips
dipped in A logos got it sown into my f*ckin skin
I’m going in my speech release the beast within
I speak with sin because I seen it so much
and had to live with all the people it touched
the people is us we evil as fuck
that’s why I watch my back keeping it tucked
Bam Bam on these f*ckin bastards
back asswards
hashtag nerds with swag scarves you f*ckin herbs
I’m going crazy like a bunch of f*ckin pachyderms
airing out the fossys when I open up this can of worms

1st Hook:
I’m sick of all these rappers thinking their the dopest
I listen to the shit they spit and I’m like no bitch
this is hopeless no I’d never roll with yall
you on that bullshit, I can’t deal with it x2

2nd Verse Ghettosocks:
I don’t even need to speak for you to peep my unique essence
I reach perfection in a session while you eat breakfast
steady schemein over beats and defeat legends
till you recognize the steez like police sketches
staying fresh to death throughout the eight seasons
you bench warmers aint scoring trying to play defence
none of yall can ball at all or your cousin either
I’m half court no look hook buzzer beater
pullin mamis off my audio what
you would have thought she popped a molly off of cardio charts
harddy harr party on garth I bodied your broad
She like to play the game too playin Mario Cart
Word, I pour it on you out of order like in court of law
no more like you out of order like you got the quarter club
Drop a poem stain your dome like your gorbachev
So just stop game over like the board went off

2nd Hook:
I’m sick of all these rappers thinking their the dopest
I listen to the shit they spit and I’m like no bitch
this is hopeless no I’d never roll with yall
you on that bullshit, I can’t deal with it x2

3rd Verse Fortunato:
I’m going in about to win it for the team
aint no cheatin when I speak it I’m still living the dream
that I had since way back so fuck you played out raps
you just started I just farted see the difference in that?
I don’t, you can sell your soul for crack but I won’t
I put an L to my head and that’s the way that I cope
smoke copious ammounts I keep an ounce in my coat
as long as I got weed to smoke then I could never be broke
but yo these rappers are weak they bend at the knees
living their lives in solitude
they can never be free
stuck on all that bullshit that they seen on TV
you need to stop and keep it calm like a tropical breeze
I dropping napalm in my army fatigues
and sing a song that makes you wanna believe
that theres a better world with better mc’s
but yo the industry still dumbing it down
so fuck a major we aint changing sound nah!

3rd Hook:
I’m sick of all these rappers thinking their the dopest
I listen to the shit they spit and I’m like no bitch
this is hopeless no I’d never roll with yall
you on that bullshit, I can’t deal with it x2
