Alright so I don't know about you guys but I've personally been waiting on an album from these two since Click and Get It Done. Both of them are dope emcee's and they both put great music out so why not do it together right?
I remember when Torae came to Houston I got a chance to chop it up with him about the album and he didn't give me a whole lot of information outside of that they were getting started on it so there really wasn't a lot to give. All I told him was that I need a Barrel Brothers/DJ Premier joint. And as you can see from the tracklist my wish was granted. Most likely not because I asked but because its DJ Premier, Torae and Skyzoo have always held it down with the "Creator of the New York Sound".
I'm glad these two brothers came together and made this happen. The feature line up is crazy. Everyone from Sean Price, Sha Stimuli to Blu and Guilty Simpson and don't even get me started on the production credits. !llmind, Premier, Khrysis, Praise, AntMan Wonder and Oh-No. There are more as you can see from the credits below. The album is set to drop 5/27/14 and I expect nothing but greatness from these two. With the 2014 year already bringing you iLL shit like Freddie Gibbs x Madlib's "Pinata" and Step Brothers (Alchemist and Evidence) "Lord Steppington", Dag Savage's "E&J" and most recently Pharoahe Monch's "PTSD", I am sure that Torae and Skyzoo's Barrel Brothers album will be given the same acclaim. I ride for these brothers regardless. Torae has always been a stand up cat since I met him and even though I've never personally met Skyzoo I've saw son perform countless times and have all of his albums. These cats have talent and among others are holding down the "New York Sound" many of you claim you miss.....When they release the first single just know it already has a spot on here...
