Westchester emcee Fortes and Coney Island veteran Torae joined RIOC recently to discuss their upcoming projects. Fortes, a young artist under the wing of Styles P (The LOX) is a very hungry and ambitious emcee and producer, only getting 3 hours of sleep each night. He is recording his official debut album with Styles as his mentor, as well as releasing lots of free music on his Soundcloud page, found here. Torae has released his fourth official solo album, Entitled, as his best work to date. Production includes Nottz, Pete Rock, Mr. Porter, Apollo Brown, !llmind, Khrysis, and more. Guest features include Saul Williams, Phonte, Mack Wilds, and more. Check out the off-the-head freestyle from these two emcees and purchase Torae’s Entitled album here.
