During A3C this year Ms. Kommunication & Pandemic TV caught up with the LiveMixtapes team of Torae, Skyzoo & Pro Status to discuss the basketball game, music & of course A3C in Atlanta. One of the few times we get to see Skyzoo without a cap on.
Episode 2 traces Torae’s journey as an MC, starting as a young kid with a maxed out credit card on a self- pressed vinyl single, which lead to his work with The Coalescence and breakout singles “Click” and “Get It Done” with Skyzoo and DJ Premier. Reeling from the support and new fan base he established, he then signed to Duck Down Records where he released the critically acclaimed joint effort “Double Barrel” with producer Marco Polo. The stage is now set for what is next to come: the recording of his debut solo album. With bills to pay and a family to feed, Tor knows he can’t live on props alone; with this album it’s make or break.
Episode 2 features appearances by DJ Premier, Skyzoo, Marco Polo, DJ Eclipse, Rich Ahee, and Noah Friedman of Duckdown Records. You can view Episode 2 HERE.

Shot this in Harlem at Blackstar Video over a year ago with Skyzoo, Esso, Donny Goines & Poca. Just wanted to have it up here for all that missed it. Shouts to BET Digital & Jomo Davis for having me on. We got some big things planned for the very near future. Also big shouts to the lovely Dana Brewington…

Well there were a lot of pictures & video taken last week at the “Outta Here” shoot so I’m gonna assume these will be rolling in, in the upcoming days. This BTS is courtesy of Rap Relapse, thanks fellas.
Cake! No not the slang word for money and no not the banger by Lloyd Banks & Fatin. I’m talking about actual deliciously baked frosted goodness! Tonight please join Skyzoo, Nina B. and yours truly as we present to you “Rapper’s Delight” along with the fine folks at Con Amore. You may remember that name from my release party as they provided the delicious red velvet cupcakes & Heart Failure watch cake the guests snacked on. Tonight Nina, Sky & I will be unveiling 3 cakes we each designed along with Alysia J. of Con Amore. I suppose it’s a battle of sorts but ultimately the winner will be all in attendance. If you’re in Brooklyn tonight joint us at Nicholas Variety 560 Fulton Street at 7:00pm to RSVP email BKConAmore@gmail.com
Last week I sat down with Out Da Box TV for an interesting Q & A session. We discussed things like: balancing family life with the music business, the possibility of a collabo album with Skyzoo, my upcoming debut LP and much more. Good interview, check it out.
