Dame Fortune is the deliciously eclectic sixth album from veteran producer and crate digger extraordinaire RJD2, out March 25th on RJs Electrical Connections. Its a wondrous beast, recorded over the past year while living in Philadelphia, before returning to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Streaked with Phillys rep for deeply felt soul music while maintaining a playful sense of adventurousness, Dame Fortune features guest vocalists Son Little (aka Aaron Livingston) and frequent collaborator Phonte, while also presenting the bombastic hip-hop sound that marked RJD2s breakthrough album, Deadringer, and even an orchestral composition for the societal unrest experienced in this day and age (called PF Day Onethe PF standing for Post Ferguson).Living in Philly provided a context for a lot of soul music that I had liked, RJD2 says on the citys influence on Dame Fortunes sound. I didnt have any cultural context for this music that I likedit was just music that I had stumbled across as a beat making nerd. Philly was a place where there were enough people who had the same musical vocabulary that I did, which made the music more than something I had just discovered on my own.The debut single, Peace of What, features Jordan Brown and draws inspiration from 1990s rap legends Main Sources 1991 single Peace Is Not the Word to Play. When I hear people talk of peace in America, the discrepancy between our words and our actions can get fatiguing, he says on the inspiration behind the song. I was trying to reflect the experience of people I know, which often feels like Were not ACTUALLY trying to do anything about this problem in our country.Thought-provoking and undeniably entertaining all at once, this latest exhibition of musical virtuosity is a crystal-clear reflection of RJD2s cinematic aspirations, reminding listeners that its always rewarding to expect the unexpected. RJD2 will tour throughout 2016 in support of Dame Fortune and his 20-year-plus-career.
