Hailing from Sydney’s West, Fortay is about to take the country by surprise with new album Living Proof is out today through At Large Productions and Obese Distribution. The first single from the album ‘Chasing the Tail’ features the one and only Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion, a friend of Fortay’s. The production is by DJ L.T., Snoop’s long-time tour DJ.
“I’ve been friends with DJ L.T for many years and he introduced me to Snoop” Fortay retells. “We meet up and we did the song in the hotel.” The concept behind the song ties in with its title, which is also slang for chasing women, something Snoop in particular is infamous for doing. With a smooth vibe provided by L.T’s 70’s tinged beats, Snoop and Fortay glide lyrically, their contrasting styles complimentary.
Another great demonstration of international hip hop, Chasing the Tail reinforces Australian rap’s worldwide legitimacy.
