On May 27th Skyzoo and Torae will finally release their long awaited Barrel Brothers collaborative project. This one has been in the works for quite sometime, but the wait is nearly over.
“To me, this was the perfect way to exercise a little bit, run a nice full court pick up game so to speak, and remind my fans, followers, and critics alike that even though I’m known for my storytelling and song cohesion with my albums, I can still take it back to the corner and go bar for bar at any given moment” says Skyzoo. “The era of the Clue tapes, the Funk Flex radio freestyles, the full on “man to man” ciphers, this project is Torae and I giving the people that side of us. It’s the side of us that we first got our name up on as rookies on the rise. That side is back for a good 14 songs, before we individually get back to our regularly scheduled programs. Personally, if I’m gonna shoot jumpers all day with anyone, its gonna be with my brother Torae”.
Barrel Brothers will feature verses and production contributions from Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Blu, DJ Premier, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, !llmind, Oh No and others. Hit the jump for the full tracklist and production credits.
