Skyzoo & Torae - "The Aura" (prod. DJ Premier + Antman Wonder)
Skyzoo & Torae team with DJ Premier and Antman Wonder to serve up a certified classic with the arrival of “The Aura” from the duo’s Barrel Brothers LP, which arrived on May 27th. The track – a flawless amalgam of immaculate verse and ominous melody – is just one gem from a project that finds Skyzoo & Torae sitting on a compilation primed to contend for album of the year on any shortlist worth its salt. Skyzoo & Torae kick in the door and a slew of careers with this joint, which is both a proper homage to the classic Gotham City aesthetic and empirical evidence that hip-hop is nowhere near dead. Digest that, then consider what the rest of the project holds. Check the track below to listen to “The Aura” from Skyzoo & Torae. Purchase the Barrel Brothers LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for more.
