It’s sad but true. There are still people out there who don’t know Rome from the capital of Italy. If you take the West Coast rapper/producer’s word for it, though, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes a household name – as he puts it on this newly-leaked cut, “I’m Borderline Famous.” Looking to Darryl Hall solo single Borderline for inspiration, the artist crafts a fittingly smooth and swanky backdrop for his fantasies of the fast life he knows is just around the corner. Just how confident is he? Well, when a female he’s chatting up at the bus stop wonders why he’s taking public transit instead of cruising in a Mercedes, he doesn’t skip a beat; by the time the record’s over, he has the girl in question fully convinced that he’s “the underdog, about to be the favorite.” Be that as it may, Booth readers still need to weigh in: is Rome as he claims, just a breath away from the success he’s worked so long and hard to achieve? Speculate away – or withhold judgment till you’ve peeped what he has to offer on L.A. Leakers-presented free album The Impossible, scheduled to hit the ‘net late in the second quarter of 2011.
