The only thing you can expect from Gilbere Forte’ is the unexpected, and the latest change of pace from the DJBooth Freestyle Alum is Please Don’t Worry. In contrast to the indie oriented 1st Floor, and his smoothed out previous feature Last Nite, Please Don’t Worry is built on an occasionally overwhelmingly complex beat from the fantastically named production duo Kidnap & Ransom that’s part video game, part stoner anthem and part outright banger. Lyrically Mr. Forte is equally complicated, displaying a bravado on the first verse that transitions into more sober contemplations by the time the song wraps: “The path you walk on, you may never run on / Chasing a life through the night, even when the sun gone.” There aren’t many emcees who could pull off a cut like Please Don’t Worry – luckily Gilbere is one of them. If you were digging this selection, and past leaks from Laws (Lady Hip Hop) and Phil Adé (Break Me Off), you’re going to want to get yourself over to AshleyOutrageous.com to cop her recently released The Playlist Vol. 2 mixtape, out now.
