Stream Skyzoo & Torae’s ‘Barrel Brothers’ Album
New York City rap has come under fire for its lack of crossover records and breakout stars, particularly compared to other cities like Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles, but Skyzoo and Torae have simply got on with it.
Having enjoyed success on the underground circuit for more than half a decade, the Brooklyn MCs have finally joined forces for a full-length album, ‘Barrel Brothers.’
The 14-track project is exactly what you’d expect from a collaboration between Skyzoo and Torae: top-tier lyricism and face-scrunching beats, with a healthy dose of chest-pounding New York pride, as showcased on the first single, ‘Blue Yankee Fitted.’
Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Oh No, Blu and Livin Proof bolster the guest list, while heavyweights like DJ Premier, !llmind and Black Milk handle the production.
Enjoy a full stream of ‘Barrel Brothers’ below, and pick up a copy on iTunes if you like what you hear (and you probably will).
