Off The Record docuseries Episode 4 “Only Way”

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.

Directed by: Mike Quigley
Music by: Eric G.

So now it’s time to make the album. The creative piece is key, but there’s also a business aspect that can sometimes go ignored. In episode 3, Torae meets with his business and creative consultants to answer the following questions: How do we build buzz? What producers will take us to the next level? What deal should we go with for distribution? Finally; we follow him into the studio as he records with Large Professor and we finally see how “Norbert” came to be.

Guest Appearances: Large Professor, Combat Jack, Dallas Penn, 9th Wonder, Soul Khan, J57, Amber Ravenel and Lena Kasambalides.
