Torae

Torae stays busy. The MC, A&R man and SiriusXM radio host was in Atlanta for BET Hip Hop Awards and chopped it up with DJ Infamous, Fat Pimp, We Are Toonz and Matt Citron. 

Torae keeps busy a noted MC, record exec and satellite radio host on Sirius XM’s Hip Hop Nation. Recently, he connected with Lil Durk and DJ Drama to chop it up about their new projects. 

Chris Brown clearly has his ears open to what’s happening in music culture abroad. Today, the crooner, amid more controversy, drops a new track titled “Shabba,” featuring Nigerian sensation WizKid, London Grime collective Section Boyz and Dallas native Hoody Baby.

Skyzoo & Torae’s Barrel Brothers album is well on its way to being inducted into the collaborative album Hall of Fame. Until then, the two NYC rhyme heavyweights are going to continue to chip away at these shows and release videos to showcase their talents without bragging about it.

“How the f**k n****as talking about, they rep the city and their joint sound like ‘Walk it Out?'” Torae questions while inhaling the crisp Brooklyn air during the video for the record “Blue Yankee Fitted.”

Skyzoo and Torae have never shied away from their hometown pride. In fact, they embrace being proud New Yorkers in unison on a track titled “Blue Yankee Fitted.”

New York City and lyrical MCs remain synonymous. Though there’s less local MCs dominating in the mainstream than, say, 15 years ago, two of the best that Brooklyn has to offer in Skyzoo and Torae (together known as Barrel Brothers) have a new LP on the way.

Maffew Ragazino may or may not be your personal rap savior but he’s certain to preach from his lyrical pulpit no matter how much recognition he gets.

Director Kareem Fort is a preparing a Hip-Hop documentary titled DEMOS: An Independent Artist’s Guide To Success that boasts a host of notable MCs detailing the grinds of the indie life. Expect an equally impressive line up on the soundtrack, from which we receive the first offering with “The Get Up” by The Barrel Brothers, better known […]

Torae returns with a new visual for his Admission of Guilt track “Steady Mobbin’,” in which the Coney Island lyricist mobs through Italy. Director RomeYork caught up with the MC during #TourTheRecord to shoot the visual for the 9th Wonder-produced record.

It’s now March, March Madness is finally upon us and the cold, unforgiving Winter will soon give way to Spring (although it’s putting up one hell of a fight thus far). Hip-Hop releases have finally begun to be churned out in greater numbers as the year goes on. The growing frequency of quality releases means […]

Torae bears a gift to the Internets with his latest mixtape, Admission of Guilt. The 13-track project sticks true to the Brooklyn lyricist’s brand of true emceeing over knocking boom-bap beats. ‘Rae Charles tapped industry cohorts like Pharoahe Monch, Skyzoo, Bun B, The Kid Daytona and more for the mixtape.
