Barrel Brothers by Skyzoo & Torae on Apple Music

15 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Two outstanding emcees repping for Brooklyn, Skyzoo and Torae are part of a rare breed of New York rappers who bring back the essence of the golden era without simply trying to imitate their forefathers. Both were signed to the classic BK label Duck Down in 2009; they've worked together in the past and have dropped high-quality solo albums. But this is their first full-length collaboration, and it's a doozy. With features from indie-rap favorites Guilty Simpson, Sean Price, Blu, and Sha Stimuli—plus stellar and hard-hitting boom-bap production from Illmind, Oh No, Black Milk, Krhysis, Apollo Brown, and DJ Premier—Barrel Brothers is the antidote for weak-sauce rappers over techno-tinged beats. If you long for the days of Timb boots and Champion hoodies, rolling in MPVs and pre-gentrification Brooklyn, this record is for you. Don't miss "4 Bar Friday," "The Aura," "Blue Yankee Fitted," and "Make You a Believer."
