The cut features boardwork by Large Professor. In addition to the original record, this four-track EP includes brand new remixes by Beewirks, BroadNMarket and King I Divine. Download HERE enjoy.
The homie Young Cee hit me up a few weeks ago & asked me to jump on this beat. He told me he wanted to feature 2 other artists on it that got busy. I trusted he wouldn’t be pushing no wackness so I agreed, Paradise is the end result. This one is on the house yall, I’ll even throw in my lyrics after the jump. Enjoy
In celebration of For The Record dropping on limited edition red vinyl Torae decided to go in over one of his favorite current Pete Rock beats. Enjoy.
Shouts to the homie Focus… for having me on this jam. He’s a beast on them beats & as you can see from that 1st verse he’s on them bars as well.
The homie DJ Flash put together a very dope mixtape compiled of Torae joints, feature verses & B Sides. If you’re looking to get familiar here’s a great place to start. Shouts to Refined Hype as well. Track list & link down under.

Known for a roster of impressive collaborations, Torae has assembled an awe-inspiring crew of beatsmiths for accompaniment. From the renowned Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Diamond D and Large Professor; to those Torae labels “new legends,” 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Fatin, Illmind, Eric G., Marco Polo and Nottz.
“The combination of stellar production and a focused and more introspective Torae makes this his best work to date,” states Brooklyn legend, Masta Ace
For The Record raises the bar Torae has set with previous releases. A refreshing return to the multifarious nature of 2008’s “Daily Conversation”, the project is a notable change from 2009’s Double Barrel with Marco Polo, and this year’s mono-thematic Heart Failure EP. Fans will hear his skills sharpened; an array of cadences and intricately weaved rhyme patterns. He is also at his most vulnerable and transparent; providing a view through a wide-angle lens at the man behind the MC, as heard on “Panorama” and “Reflection.” Still there’s no shortage of the hard-hitting audacity we love on tracks like “Shakedown” and “You Ready.”
Also distinct is the absence of other voices on For The Record. According to Torae, the choice to forego lyrical assists was deliberate. “No one can tell my story like me.”
