Gilbere Forte, a Philadelphia adopted son, gets credit for daring to be different musically. He’s gotten love from 2dopeboyz, and his video for “Black Chukkas” was played on MTV Jams. His Some Dreams Never Sleep EP sports the track “Hot (In This B*tch) with Pusha T and Jim Jones, as well as features from Big K.R.I.T, Tyga, Casey Veggies, Bun B and Asher Roth. With that many stamps, he has all the right ingredients to break out.
