A Brooklyn emcee who's been putting in work since the mid-'90s, Torae has seen his profile steadily rise over the years. After appearing on countless 12-inches, collaborations, and mixtapes, in 2009 he finally released his first album: the exceptional Double Barrel, produced entirely by Canada-to-Queens boom-bap specialist Marco Polo. Two years later, he's back with For the Record, enlisting a jaw-dropping dream team of behind-the-boards talent, including iconic heroes DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Large Professor, and Diamond D, plus next-generation torch-bearers Khrysis, !llmind, and Nottz. Where a lessor verbalist could easily find himself eclipsed by the V.I.P. beatmakers, Torae holds his own, coming correct with an avalanche of smart rhymes that focus mainly on bold bravado, self-reflection, and his steadfast dedication to true-school hip-hop. It's seriously banging from start to finish. Check out "That Raw," the conceptual "what if?" vibe of "Do the Math," and the post-breakup jam "Over You."
Real Hip Hop At It's BEST!
ATTENTION: Real hip hop is not dead. It is alive and well thanks to artist like Torae that keep it real. This album is amazing. The production is super tight, and the lyrics are perfectly delivered. We have not had a hip hop album this good in a very long time. It is refreshing to hear a project that clearly took time to produce. It was well worth the wait. Buy and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
I told you before I was waitin' for the mid-night release fam, and it was well worth it of course... Keep blessin' em' wit' what they need fam!!
Another great album from Torae. The production is great, the rhymes are great. You will not be disappointed, download this NOW.
