Torae - For The Record (2xLP - Black Vinyl)
Hip hop recording artist Torae announces his upcoming debut offering; For The Record, on his Internal Affairs Entertainment imprint. The album is an ample fifteen tracks worth of high-caliber production and impeccable rhyme.
For The Record is sure to transcend the expectations of new listeners and staunch supporters alike, with veteran MCs like Masta Ace heralding it as his greatest contribution thus far..."The combination of stellar production and a focused and more introspective Torae makes this his best work to date," the fellow Brooklyn native stated.
Known for a roster of impressive collaborations, Torae has assembled an awe-inspiring crew of beatsmiths for accompaniment. From the renowned Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Diamond D and Large Professor; to those Torae labels "new legends," 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Fatin, Illmind, Eric G., Marco Polo and Nottz.
For The Record raises the bar Torae has set with previous releases. A refreshing return to the multifarious nature of 2008's "Daily Conversation", the project is a notable change from 2009's Double Barrel with Marco Polo, and this year's mono-thematic Heart Failure EP. Fans will hear his skills sharpened; an array of cadences and intricately weaved rhyme patterns. He is also at his most vulnerable and transparent; providing a view through a wide-angle lens at the man behind the MC, as heard on "Panorama" and "Reflection." Still there's no shortage of the hard-hitting audacity we love on tracks like "Shakedown" and "You Ready."
Also distinct is the absence of other voices on For The Record. According to Torae, the choice to forego lyrical assists was deliberate. "No one can tell my story like me," he asserted.
