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”
Here’s his most recent video from his song ‘Let em’ Know” produced by Jahlil Beats
Please follow him on social media. He’s extremely humble and approachable. So, if you have a question for him, feel free to ask!

Merry Christmas from our Fab and Fly family to yours!
Christmas is my favorite holiday for one reason, and one reason only, family. Regardless if you celebrate the holiday or not I always loved the fact that because of the lack of business’ actually open, it allowed you spend time with your loved ones. Giving you a day or two to travel to see extended family or stay in town to spend more time with the family you live with and don’t live with that you don’t get to spend as much quality time with as often because of you all and living your individual lives.
So in honor of making the most of spending quality time with family and friends here is my Christmas gift to you, a list of fun games to enjoy!
The Sign Game: Typically this is a drinking game but for under-aged participants they can opt out for some Sparkling Cider. Directions: Everyone sits in a circle facing each other and will take going around displaying a “simple” hand jester (i.e. peace sign, thumbs up, pointing finger etc.) Everyone’s sign must be different. You can pick someone randomly to start where they will display their sign followed by someone else’s sign. Whosever’s sign was chosen means it is now their turn to display their sign followed by someone else’s. You must repeat these steps as quickly as possible and each time someone messes up they take a shot, which will obviously make the game more challenging and fun.
Likes and Dislikes: This is great game to get to know your extended family. Directions: Everyone writes down three things they like and three things they dislike. Tear them apart put it in hat or bucket (whatever you want). Take turns pulling out a like or dislike announcing to the players to see who can guess who that like/dislike belongs to.
Here are two classic games that everyone knows.
Charades: This is a game all ages can participate in (including the toddlers and elders). Directions: Everyone writes difference objects down on a piece of paper (i.e. specific movie title, a type of toy, a song, etc.). Split up in two teams (or more if you need to) one person from each team will take turns acting out the clue they received in hopes of getting their team members to guess the clue before another team does.
Telephone: We all played this game in early grade-school and will always be a favorite ( after all the drunkenness). Directions: Once again sit a circle facing each other. Randomly pick the head of the line. They will whisper a short sentence in the next persons ear. Each person will continue to repeat the phrase as they’ve heard it to the next person until the last person receives it and will then announce it to everyone. You can only repeat the phrase two times max to each person.
I hope you enjoy all these games and create memories that will last a lifetime.
O.M.F.G., Kim Kardashian West has broken the internet again. And this time it wasn’t bare photos of her rear end( well sort of).
She has officially released her very own set of emoji’s, cleverly called, “Kimoji”.
The announcement came from Kim’s Instagram page Sunday night letting all her fans know the app would be available for download the very next day eliminating any extended wait time. At one point during the Kimoji release yesterday, iTunes actually crashed from the overwhelming response of everyone trying to download the app. This being directly caused by having 9,000 downloads per millisecond.
Any iPhone user is very aware of the iOS systems standard browser, Safari.
I never really cared for it on the Apple PC and felt exactly the same way on my fancy little iphone once I switch from #TeamAndroid to #TeamiPhone .
For some people their phones internet browser makes no difference to them either way and for those people that actually use their browser service all day everyday , like myself, you have three top browsers;

As the Christmas holiday approaches I’m sure one thing that is on many of people’s wish list even before Christmas has the rightful chance to arrive is Chris Brown’s highly anticipated album “Royalty”. Titled gracefully after his daughter, Chris’ album is sure to top the charts on its December 18 release date.
The album features hit singles such as “Liquor”, “Fine by me”, and “Zero”.
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.
Now that Beyoncé’s star isn’t shining as brightly she didn’t hesitate to jump on Coldplay’s hot new track. Martin didn’t even have to beg Beyoncé’s people. Continue Reading »
It’s looks like Apple isn’t the only one with super cool watches on the market. Samsung has recently released the S2 watch. In my personal opinion the watch is actually a lot more stylish than the Apple Watch and would even match up nicely with a button up and slacks. The round face gives a much sleeker look to its competitors.
The watch offers options of different customizable face options to suite many occasions. The face options allow you set certain apps as the main face. Such as, setting the ESPN app as the main face will keep updated scores of your favorite teams highlighted or the Nike app will display your fitness tracker. So, you can be in the loop at all times without having to log into anything for a current update on whatever your interest are.
