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.
