Today there just so happens to be an unusually large amount of new music I can't get to, so I thought I'd consolidate it all into one post. So enjoy new music from Talib Kweli, Killer Mike, Torae and more.See more...

For this week's slightly early edition, I had to bring on consummate New York City emcee Torae to talk about where Lil Wayne belongs on the all-time greatest list, the emergence of Joey Bada$$ and the resurgence of NYC hip-hop and more. See more...
All I have to do is say, "Yo, there's a new Torae mixtape out, and if you know anything about the man, you know it's dope". That's it. Thanks Torae. See more...

There has been some serious dopeness drop over the past few days, and in the spirit of giving, I've collected all the notable projects in one post. From Wale's "Folarin" to Joey Bada$$' "PEEP", enjoy...See more...
I believe it was 9th Wonder who called Torae the last of a dying breed, and I have to agree. There just aren't many guys left making that unashamedly NYC, punch you in the face but still lyrical, Pete Rock beats and DJ Premier scratches hip-hop left. See more...

Odd Couple really put together a beat that's equal parts soul and energy, never an easy task. And with emcees like Emilio Rojas, Torae and Uno Hype all throwing down, you know the lyrics and flow are going to be above par. In other words, this shit is dope, I dig dopeness, so boom, here you go. Listen and download...See more...

Now this is a great music video. It's a really good look when artists put a little effort into their videos and Torae has done just that with the visuals for his track "That Raw." While you're typical rapper would have focused on hustling drugs, Torae instead chose to hustle words in his video. See more...See more...

Over at the mothership we just launched a new "Re-Produced" series where we grab three producers to, well, re-produce one of our recent favorite tracks. First up is Torae's "Do the Math", which first featured an of course dope Large Professor beat and now also contains instrumental offerings from Beewirks, King I Divine and BroadNMarket. Listen and download...See more...
"Another Classic" finds producer M-Phazes, who was last on our pages doing beat work for Emilio's new album, layering a brass section over his signature claps for a beat that's a chiropractor's worst dream. From there it's emcees Burke, the always rock solid Torae and Side Effect throwing down rhymes (and Fogo de Chao references). Listen and download...See more...
Torae's "For the Record" got plenty of mentions as one of the most slept on albums of 2011, which is great, but I've got a better idea. How about everyone just wakes the fuck up and recognizes that the NYC emcee is making some of the dopest, most straight up, rawest, I can rap better than you hip-hop out there right now. Listen.....See more...
I love when rappers do my work for me. I could go on and on about how Torae's "For the Record" is already lining up to be one of the best NYC rap albums of the year, breakdown how it's a return to completely uncompromising hip-hop....or you could just press play on "You Ready" below. If you don't think that shit's dope, you and I are no longer friends. It's really that simple. See more...
