Now in the final stretch – and with a deadline to meet – Torae hits the road to Norfolk, VA to work with producer Nottz. After interviewing with DJ Bee of 103 Jamz and finishing the track “Thank You”, he drives to Bright Lady Studios in North Carolina to record with 9th Wonder, Khrysis, E. Jones, Fatin and the rest of The Soul Council. Upon his return to NYC, he heads back to the studio to finish the title single “For The Record” with DJ Premier and to get the album mixed and mastered. With all the travel and marathon studio sessions, will he get the hit song he’s looking for? Will the album be completed in time? For The Record is due soon, and with no more money, and even less time, Torae is in the race to the finish line.
