Rising Atlanta talent ForteBowie returns with a new track called “Gang Affiliated,” featuring Katie Got Bandz.
Before you go assuming, this record is far from a street anthem. Rather, the ATLien’s partner in crime — his leading lady — inspires him to flex his crooning ability on a sensual cut with a gritty edge.
We’re sure the song’s hypnotic melody and tingling hi-hats, also drill hop staples, made Chicago’s own Katie feel right at home. The hard rhymes detailing her loyalty for her beau create a bit of role reversal with her singing counterpart.
The tune feels almost ambient at times due to subtle nuances like ForteBowie’s background vocals.
“Gang Affiliated” will appear on the southern artist’s Vice Haus: Deluxe project, due out September 10. Hear it below. Also find Fortebowie’s visual for “Gucci Mayne” on the following page.
