Listen: Get Down - @Torae (produced by @PeteRock); A Niles P. Joint

I first took notice of Torae as half of the duo Barrel Brothers (the other half being fellow BK emcee Skyzoo, more on him next Monday).

Now he’s back and prepping his Kickstarter-funded album Entitled. The Coney Island native continues his longstanding tradition of getting beats from legendary producers. This time he’s laced by Money Earnin’ Mt. Vernon’s favorite son Pete Rock on Get Down. The lyrics are a celebration of the eminent return of quality NY rap while Torae reminds everyone that he’s been spitting flames even while many others hopped on whichever trend was fashionable. Torae stayed consistent and is now reaping the benefits in this East Coast resurrection while subpar rappers have disappeared as their gimmick ran out. Check out Get Down after the break and check for my review of Entitled next month.
