Courtesy of Okayplayer.com, a new mixtape by a emcee named Torae is available for free.
It’s okay if you’ve never heard of him before, I hadn’t either until the Okayplayer article came up. So I checked out his MySpace and Torae’s actually pretty dope.
Here’s a couple of tracks for you to test before downloading the album.
Here’s a bit of a love track, titled Tayler Made[audio:http://cache09-music01.myspacecdn.com/68/std_2f8a826b2af6320b6f478b0509d7f7e8.mp3]
And here’s Uncomfortable[audio:http://cache11-music01.myspacecdn.com/88/std_e70f3967d244d008b9c18f4f9fb3d196.mp3]
He’s got a pretty interesting style, and I can’t quite place who he reminds me of. That’s probably a good thing, becuase it makes him seem a bit more original. Sgtill, tight rhymes and backing by some of the best underground producers in the business (9th Wonder, Madlib, and others) mean this mixtape is going to be a total success.
Check it out.
