Fortunato & Sean One – Blue Collar 2
Blue Collar 2 is the culmination of a decade of friendship between producer Sean One and rapper Fortunato. The two met when Fortunato moved from Toronto to New Brunswick, and the result was the Blue Collar EP which featured the late Sean Price, Merkules, and Steele of Smif N Wessun.
Seven years later the two have combined once again to create the sequel. Unlike the first, Blue Collar 2 has no features and brings a much more positive vibe. “I wanted the album to be as clean as possible,” says Fortunato. “I wanted my rhymes to show my current perspective and my growth as an artist.”
“Breathe” and “It’s You” are examples of the inspirational ethos behind Blue Collar 2. “The whole vibe of the album is meant to inspire, uplift, and empower,” Fortunato explains. “When I heard Sean’s production it was triumphant and almost celebratory. So I wanted my rhymes to complement his beats and adjusted my content to help manifest that energy.” Hopefully it will do the same for you.
