Keeping it real and staying true to your vision may be fulfilling, but warm, fuzzy feelings aren’t going to put food on your family’s table. Well-acquainted with the conflict that arises when art and commerce collide, Torae weighs the incomparable feeling of creating quality music against the demands of the marketplace on mixtape lead single What’s Love. Over Praise‘s Chipmunk-soul production, the B.K. native rails against the “politics, kickbacks, favoritism [and] mishaps,” that prevent talented artists from rising to the top of the industry. Queens vet Pharoahe Monch urges the headliner to stick to his guns on the back, asking, “What’s bein’ on top with no options?” Featuring guest appearances by Bun B., Uncle Murda, Skyzoo, Torch of Triple C’s and The Kid Daytona, Torae’s Admission of Guilt street album is scheduled to his The DJBooth March 13, for free streaming and download.
