Skyzoo & Torae Unveil ‘Barrel Brothers’ Tracklist, Album Cover
Two of the best rhyme-spitters from Brooklyn have teamed up on a project that will surely attract listeners looking for some real bars over head-banging beats. Rappers Skyzoo and Torae (aka the Barrel Brothers) will release their collaborative album next month.
The 15-song effort features an impressive list of top-notch rhymers as well as production from hip-hop’s elite producers.
Sean Price, Sha Stimuli, Guilty Simpson, Livin Proof and Blu lend an assist with their respective rhymes. On the production end, studio mavericks DJ Premier, Oh No, Illmind, Black Milk, Jahlil Beats, Apollo Brown and others provide the boom-bap beats.
"This album was a long time coming, but when the people wanted it six years ago neither [Skyzoo] nor I had fully established ourselves as solo artists” said Torae in a press release (via XXLMag). “Now that we’ve made our marks as individuals, it’s time to combine forces and really give the fans what they’ve been asking for."
"This LP is gonna be heat top to bottom, there’s no denying the chemistry Sky & I have in the studio, we always bring out the best in each other," he continued. "Get ready, it's almost Barrel Brothers season."
Released jointly on Skyzoo’s First Generation Rich, Inc. and Torae’s Internal Affairs Ent., 'Barrel Brothers' arrives May 27.
