Video: Reef of (Fortune Family) & Dylan Owen – Dreams ft. Grace Kelly

December 14th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

Here’s the latest from Reef (of Fortune Family) and newcomer to BtB Dylan Owen with “Dreams”. Grace Kelly is on the vocals, which are delightful and the rapping is superb for a dope track that has already gotten over 25,000 views in less than a week!

Also I’m loving the production, which is by August Coupe and it’s filmed by none other, Jon Kilmer, who pretty much directs all the top Northeastern US up-and-coming artists music videos.

Listen and DOWNLOAD “Dreams”.

Watch the official video to “Dreams” below. (more…)

It’s been a little while since we last heard from Fortune Family, but they are back and with an awesome new track called “Living Dead”. The duo out of NYU provide a very chill, laid back feel with some old school hip-hop flavor. The verses are solid on a catchy beat. Enjoy!

February 14th, 2011 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Hip-Hop/Rap |

It’s is finally completed in its entirety. The Paradox EP by Fortune Family has arrived. The New York University hip-hop duo does not disappoint in this one and their versatile sound really shows their true talent. They have a bit of a laid back feel with great rapping over to create straight fire. My favorite songs on Paradox are “Take Me Away”, “Hasta La Vista” (featuring OnCue) and “Ahora”. Enjoy!

Fortune Family – “My Energy”

September 27th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |
“Music is my life/music is my energy” – Fortune Family
Hearing that line in the chorus of this song just increases my interest in this independant hip-hop group, Fortune Family. Their passion, their drive, it shows in this music video for their newest single, “My Energy”.
It’s a good upbeat track and compared to their first music video, Fortune Family is only getting better.
Download “My Energy” and as a bonus listen to my favorite Fortune Family track, “Let It Go”, which we featured on our End of Summer 2010 mix: Best You Never Heard.
Listen (and download on Mac control-click; PC: right click) to “Let It Go” by Fortune Family.
