If you like real Hip Hop, you’ll love Torae. I always find it rewarding to seek out the next hottest artist and give them a platform to showcase their work, their bio and give our readers an opportunity to fall in love with an artist they may not have heard of before. We usually post emerging artists…new artists that need a platform. But Toraeis not a new artist. Torae has been rapping for years. He dropped his first album, in 2009 called “Double Barel.” While doing press runs for his album, some really important relationships were formed. One of these important relationships was with DJ Eclipse of SiriusXM’s Hip-Hop Nation. He just so happened to be in need of a new co-host for his show Rap Is Outta Control. Who better to give such an opportunity than a dope realist rapper from the biggest Hip Hop capital of the world?
Torae says he was pretty apprehensive about it because he didn’t want people to get it misconstrued, like, ‘Are you a rapper or are you a radio guy?’,” Torae recalls. “But I try not to block my own blessing. So he gave it shot! Three weeks in as Eclipse right-hand man, the Double Barrel MC fell in love with radio. Even though Toraewas torn with what people would think of him, he realized some of the best rappers had other careers as well! Look at some of the really good actors that were also rappers; 2pac, Queen Latifah, LL Cool J and one of the best to do it…Will Smith aka “The Fresh Prince” So thinking of these amazing artists it made Toraefeel better about his dual career path.
I personally got acquainted with Torae when I was riding down the street listening to “Hip Hop Nation” on SiriusXM radio. He was interviewing someone and I just really liked his authenticity. Of course SiriusXM radio is uncensored so I felt he was really able to be himself and delve in to the questions and the truth in what not only he wanted to know..but truly what the fans wanted to know. I was like, “Who is this Torae; The TorGuide?” Then me being me. I googled him and continued to listen to him between 5pm-10pm. When I found out he was a rapper, I as intrigued and while listening to a few of his songs, I knew I needed to do a feature on him.
Torae has a new album dropping in exactly 2wks called “Torae Entitled”
You can go to his website itstorae.com and read his full bio and listen to additional songs. Three of his most recent releases from ‘Entitled’ the tracks are ‘Get Down” x Pete Rock and ‘Saturday Night’ and “Let Em’ Know”

I was browsing one of my favorite sites, SandraRose and ran across some new hot music. However, it was her actual post that was so interesting, So much that, I thought I would share it with you. Of course any article that mentions Beyoncé and Rihanna in the same sentence, is always a good read:
It reads: “A few years ago, Complex.com had a story about Beyoncé turning down a collabo with British band Coldplay. Coldplay ended up contacting a more grateful Rihanna instead.
“Well, I did write a song for Beyoncé, but it got rejected by her A&R people. And the one I wrote for Rihanna didn’t get rejected,” Coldplay frontman Chris Martin told Maxim.
What a difference a few years makes.
