Torae – Outta Here Teaser (Video)

Outta Here (Teaser) from Torae on Vimeo.

The fine folk at mtvU will be debuting the official music video for “Outta Here” this Friday July 29th. Here’s a little teaser to get you all ready. Heart Failure is available for download now.


Torae – Love Is War ft. Lydia Caesar

This is by far one of my favorite records. I’ve had this beat for like 4 years I always wanted to use it but I never had the project, song idea etcetera so once I decided to do Heart Failure I pulled it out the stash. I played it for Lydia Caesar along with a few other but she loved this beat. She wrote the hook and bridge around my verses & then we tweaked a few words here & there together. The end result is Love Is War. It’s been a favorite of men & women since it’s release. I guess everyone can relate to being fed up in one way or another. Be on the look out for Lydia too, she’s an amazing singer, songwriter & performer…

Torae on The Ear Peace (Video)

Here’s the on air interview I did with The Ear Peace (Natalio Tabaco & Linda Lights) last week at PNC Radio, shouts to SupaLaura, the homie A King and Damien Lemon. Funny, funny stuff. The Ear Peace airs Every Thursdays on pncradio.fm More videos on vimeo.com/supalaura. Hit the jump for my one on one with Laura that same night.

15 Minutes of Fame

The good brother TC from The Smoking Section took some time to sit & chop it up with me about a whole array of things like: who was the inspiration behind “Heart Failure”, the importance of being able to make records & my overall career plan. For those that still like to read I’d suggest you check out “Fifteen Minutes With Torae” tout à l’heure…


Torae on Out Da Box TV (Video)

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.


Blue Vodka > Blue Balls

Shouts again to the good folks at Pool Vodka for holding down the open bar at The #HeartFailure release party. They caught some dope footage (above) as well. Sidebar: I TOTALLY forgot to bring that bottle home with me, Bryan whattup??


Heart Failure Available Now

I wanna thank everyone that came out to the “Heart Failure” release party last week. It’s always a humbling experience when I see the people that actually support my movement. I don’t wanna name names but I had some really amazing people come out last Thursday. THANK YOU ALL. Shouts to all the sponsors of the event as well. There were a few photographers in the building for sure, salute you all for the coverage. Click HERE for pictures from the release party courtesy of Photo Rob.

And now on to the reason we were celebrating. “Heart Failure” is available for sale NOW!!. In the 1st day we were able to crack the top 200 on iTunes, today I’d like to hit the top 100 or even top 50. I can’t do it without yall though. Head over to iTunes, leave a comment & grab a song or two….or eleven, haha. Thanks, without you there no me. Real Rap!


Just My Thoughts

So with the release of any new project comes radio & press. Salute to every journalist & radio jock that gives a good got damn to sit & speak with me and a bigger shout to everyone that sits down to read or listen to a Torae interview. With that said the homie Amanda Bassa wrote a dope 2 part piece on me entitled “Bar Enlightenment” for The Well Versed where she chose a few lines of mine & I did the knowledge on ‘em. I also chopped it up with the homie 730 from HipHopGame for a nice little write up that started off speaking about Heart Failure but ended up talking about 6 grader classroom outbursts, social networks & the documentation of blow jobs, hahaha very interesting read indeed. For shits & giggles I’ll throw in the audio of my time with the legendary Tony Touch on his Toca Tuesdays show on Shade 45. I went for about 20 good bars….definitely decent.

Well folks the day is upon us. Flowers, cards, candy & a whole bunch of other unnecessary BS. Don’t you people know all you need is love & music.

Time For Some Action!

So as we all know punk ass Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching. This year my gift to you all is the “Heart Failure” EP/mixtape, my ode to all things right & wrong in a relationship. I also hooked up with my homies at FluD Watches to drop a collabo timepiece. The result of said collaboration the “Moment” Heart Failure Limited Edition watch. I’m very proud to have my own watch, I remember coming up I wanted a casio or a swatch, now I got my OWN, that’s pretty sick!!! Good looks to Bova on the design & again to FluD for making it happen. I hope you all like it & if so I hope you all cop one. Karmaloop got the hook up *No Master P* uhhhhhhhh!! The release party this past Thurs was ill. Pics & recap soon come. Check all 3 watch colors after the jump.

Pillow Talk w/Lethal Lipps (Video)

So for my 2nd Pillow Talk installment I figured let’s really go there! And who better to go in with than adult film star Lethal Lipps. This interview was just as fun as the one with Dee, but in a whole different way. Enjoy!!


Pillow Talk w/Dee Vazquez (Video)

In a constant effort to push the envelope in my viral campaigns I present to you a one on one interview series with a number of industry females entitled “Pillow Talk”. With the success of my inflowmercial & Double Barrel Tuesday clips I wanted to come with something new for the Heart Failure mixtape/EP. I think Pillow Talk will enlighten fans of these women while showcasing yet another side of me. First up is the lovely Dee Vazquez of Fuse TV, Hot 97 & Sirius XM. I hope you enjoy…
