Torae – “For The Record” (Prod. by DJ Premier) | Music Video

You’d be forgiven for thinking that skilled emcee Torae‘s recently liberated longer player For The Record wasn’t his debut solo album. Having been in the game since the mid-nineties “Da Young Veteran” has a massed a highly respetable back catalogue of mixtapes, EPs and collaborative project releases, that 99.85% of the “new crop” emcee could only dream off.

During the Brooklynite’s come up he has connected with some of Hip Hop’s most revered practitioners such as Large Professor, Pete RockLittle Brother, Diamond D ,DJ Spinna, !llmindMarco PoloStatik Selektah, Sean Price, Wale and 9th Wonder to name but a few. As a result of the respect he has earned in the game, , via his high calibre lyrical talent, many of said practitioners locked time in the lab with Tor help him construct his very very solid solo jumpoff LP.

In support of the album, Torae has unleashed his visual treatment for the project’s DOPE title track produced by the great DJ Premier. Check out the video below…
