Knox Fortune is undoubtedly one of my favorite rising artists. The crazy talented 24-year-old has stepped out on his own for his incredible debut album Paradise after years of collaborating with high-profile artists.
The Chicago-based artist has worked with a ton of Chicago artists including Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Joey Purp and more before coming through his his own full-length project. The 11-track album clocks in at just 37 minutes but is a satisfying collection of genre-blending tracks we’ll surely have on repeat. The project was a large collaborative effort as he worked with many of his past collaborators including Lido.
“Lil Thing” is one of my favorite tracks of the year and with the full LP here, it’s safe to say Knox Fortune is a special artist. He has a gift for blending different sounds with his never-ending versatility as his solo works sound nothing like his collaborations with Chance and others. He takes a more indie approach blending influences from psychedelic rock, hip-hop and even punk. His productions are next level and his voice is a dreamy, laid-back tone that brings an endlessly mellow vibe that’s perfect to kick back and relax to. Stream below and enjoy!
