The Hundreds has partnered with rising hip-hop artist Gilbere Forte to present his newest EP entitled “Some Dreams Never Sleep” – the highly-anticipated project releases today, October 4, 2011. Beyond an apparel brand, The Hundreds is considered a lifestyle project, influenced by a spectrum of youth culture’s defining traits – with flagship stores on both the west and east coasts of the United States, drawing inspiration from hip-hop culture, and the pre-existing friendship between Forte and The Hundreds, it’s only natural for The Hundreds to join forces with the Philadelphia-based artist.
Forte, who first garnered attention from the hip hop industry with his debut album “87 Dreams” has since gained notoriety as a guest on a slew of tracks by well-known artists, including: Stromae’s “Alors On Danse” remix, also featuring Kanye West; the Yeasayer remix of Florence + The Machine’s “Dog Days Are Over;” and the Diplo-produced “Up All Night” by Alex Clare. The “Some Dreams Never Sleep EP” is the third official release from Gilbere and has already created a buzz with the remix to his breakout single “Black Chukkas,” featuring Asher Roth and Bun B. The song is only a taste of what to expect from the mixtape which features production from Don Cannon, Raak and more, and appearances by Pusha T, Jim Jones, Big K.R.I.T., Casey Veggies, Tyga and others.
