A well-known name in the Toronto underground hip-hop scene, MC Fortunato teamed up with New Brunswick producer Sean One to collaborate on his latest Blue Collar EP. From the release, “Closer Look” features dominating appearances from Halifax rappers Ghettosocks & Tachichi on the new East Coast remix of the single.
Supported by the old school, east coast production, “Closer Look” is reminiscent of ’90s hip-hop at its finest. Careful wordplay, laid-back delivery, and toe tapping rhythm glue together Fortunato’s swagger and skill.
The video has the hard-working rapper walking through the north end of Halifax during a blizzard, wandering through the cold with his east coast friends; enjoy the video below and check out Blue Collar EP through his bandcamp.
