About Gilbere x LETUSPRAY:

Emerging street fashion label LETUSPRAY connects with rising superstar,Gilbere Forte to collaborate on his widely released and critically acclaimed new project entitled “PRAY“. The “PRAY 4 the Stars” cap is the first piece from the collaboration.
Born in Flint, Michigan music has played an integral role in Gilbere’s life. Embracing his parents musical taste, Gilbere was introduced to the likes of Isaac Hayes, Roy Ayers, Phil Collins, and Sade as a youth. By age 9 he was reciting raps from likes of 2Pac, B.I.G. and Outkast, which inevitably led to Gilbere penning his own songs by age 12. In 2000, songwriting gave way to production and an initial foray into beat-making with Fruity Loopsand Reason. This continued through high-school and into college. The inspiration to take music seriously led Gilbere to pursue a degree in Entrepreneurship & Business Management at Temple University, where he enrolled in the fall of 2006. As Gilbere progressed as a musician, he was aided by his brother (and manager) DeNiro Forté’s own growth in the industry. Through him, Gilbere was introduced to the Junior Music Executive Program which lead to an internship with Studio 609 and award winning production duo Dre & Vidal. The experience and experimentation with Reason and Logic, along with live instrumentation, presented a true opportunity for Gilbere to carve out his own sonic identity. Staying close to the business, Gilbere also served as the East Coast Sales Rep that year for burgeoning street-wear brand Undrcrwn. In building his musical foundation he took another step in his progression as an artist – teaming up with fellow producer from Temple, Rakib “Raak” Uddin. Recently signing a major label deal, Gilbere Forte is poised to show the world at large what sets him apart from the rest.
