iHipHop.com caught up with Coney Island’s own Torae at the Rock Steady Crew’s 35th Anniversary show in Lincoln Park, NJ to discuss a variety of topics. In this exclusive interview Torae talks about the generation gap in New York Hip-Hop, getting respect from the older generation of MCs, his upcoming EP “Off The Record,” whether he prefers 9th Wonder or Khrysis on the boards, and who he’d like to collaborate with.
