Signature Beat: Trinidad James "$outh$ide" (2013)

Atlanta's Fortebowie has displayed a preternatural gift for druggy, spacious trap sounds over early releases like Something About Bowie. With the just released deluxe edition of his EP Vice Haus, he doubles down on his rep with a spate of songs that incorporate unorthodox source material (the intro samples Fiona Apple's "Every Single Night") and a gritty but always melodic street rap heft into Bowie's rapper/singer act. He also gifted Trinidad Jame$ with the spectral "$outh$ide," one of the better showings on James' 2012 debut Don't Be S.A.F.E.
