Torae - Somethin’ To See

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Torae
Producer:
Khrysis (of Justus League)
Album:
Daily Conversation

Virtually every underground rapper from New York City believes that “hip-hop is in very poor shape” and that it’s their destiny to “bring it back to the glory days.”  Joining this non-exclusive club is Coney Island veteran Torae, who after having toured and recorded with Bad Boy, Ruff Ryders, Cash Money and Dipset, believes the industry needs serious replenishment.  On Somethin’ To See, Torae does his best impression of the Columbia-era 50 Cent, bringing forward a rawness that is synonymous with NYC underground hip-hop.  Additionally, Khrysis (of Justus League) provides an accordion-laced beat, which should make Somethin’ to See something to hear.  Torae’s debut album, Daily Conversation, is available now.
