Image: 1592636 This new full-length album features production and guest features from DJ Premier, !llmind, Jahlil Beats, Black Milk, Sean Price, Blu, Guilty Simpson, Oh No, and more.

For years, fans of both Skyzoo and Torae alike have asked the two to collaborate on a full length LP, after the multiple singles they’ve released together over the years. Classics such as the DJ Premier produced “Get It Done” and “Click”, the !llmind produced “Barrel Brothers” of of he and Sky’s 2010 Live From The Tape Deck, the album has been called for by their following since 2006.

The idea behind Barrel Brothers is what the people have asked and come to know the two wordsmiths for, pure lyricism. Skyzoo, known for his picturesque storytelling and jazz/ orchestrial background, and Torae, known for his gritty Coney Island depictions of life with a vintage but modern lyrical approach, have briefly put their normal forte’s to the side and crafted this album with one game plan in mind, lyrical exercise over hard New York City soundscapes. The current resurgence of NYC hip hop is perfect grounds for two of its premier flag holders to continue doing what they never stopped doing in the first place, representing the city.

“This album was a long time coming, but when the people wanted it 6 years ago neither Sky nor I had fully established ourselves as solo artists” says Torae. “Now that we’ve made our marks as individuals it’s time to combine forces and really give the fans what they’ve been asking for. This LP is gonna be heat top to bottom, theres no denying the chemistry Sky & I have in the studio, we always bring out the best in each other. Get ready, it’s almost Barrel Brothers season.”
