LISTEN: Fortune Family //
One-third Egyptian and hailing from the suburbs of Philly comes Fortune Family, consisting of Hobson (Owen Hobson), Reefer (Sherif Hamid) and Kane (Matt Kane). Their first mixtape (Altered State) came out last June and made its way around the college blogs. Now they’re back for more with their second mixtape — The Dead Rapper’s Society. “Act One” off this mixtape made our April FEN Five, and here are two of our other favorites. With Hobson’s sampling skills and the various lyrical styles they bring to the mic, we look forward to hearing where their creative growth continues to take them. Leave some comments and let us know what you think.
“Believe in Me” (Recognize the sample?)
