“For The Record” (Prod. DJ Premier)

    Torae, who hails from Coney Island, N.Y., gathered a jaw-dropping lineup of producers for his proper debut, For The Record. The album features beats from living legends such as Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Large Professor, and Diamond D. They all handed him over some heat, too, including the Pete Rock-produced “That Raw” and the newly leaked “For the Record.” Torae chose to give away the title track, which is produced by DJ Premier, as a celebration of the album’s release. It’s a fitting choice, because of Premo’s deft sample chops and scratching and Torae’s lyrical attack. Dude’s got technical skills for days. Stream the track below and download it here.
