There is absolutely nothing in hip-hop that feels better than when a DJ Premier beat is rocked by a talented and authoritative emcee, and that’s exactly what you get with Torae’s latest DJ Premier produced title track, For The Record. From his new album of the same name, Torae takes his time to give the listener straight forward hip-hop that’s head-nod worthy and, what’s more, completely neck breaking. The legendary Primo has been more careful in the last few years about with whom he works and that has given us new school underground classics like Reks’ 25 Hour and, if I can look into the future, For The Record. Torae’s new album is available for streaming and direct purchase via The DJBooth right now!
