If you can’t handle the heat of Forté’s rhythm, step out of his kitchen. Following the release of 2018’s vibe-laden Grumble Rap and The MischTape, the Somerville rapper returns this year with his new track “Money Misshun” featuring Cliff Notez. Keeping the theme of monetary matters in mind — and perhaps building on “Centsless” — the tune mixes minimalist hip-hop with the desire to hone in on his never-ending hustle.
“I’ve been working on the mix of the song for about five or six months now but writing the song took a few hours listening to the instrumental,” Forté tells Vanyaland. “The inspiration for the song was really the feeling the beat gave myself, with money being a constant factor in all our lives, so naturally it came to mind when writing it.”
The track is hopefully a solid sampling of what’s on Forté’s agenda for the coming months, as he says he’s hoping to release a project and new visuals later this year. Listen to “Money Misshun” below, and catch it live at the rapper’s gig at Wonder Bar next Tuesday (April 23).
