Brooklyn, New York emcee Torae is at work on his third official album. The Coney Island native has yet to release a title or label for the project, however through Twitter, it has been confirmed that Queens, New York legend Large Professor and Virginia’s Nottz are contributing tracks.
While 2009’s Double Barrel was a full collaborative effort with producer Marco Polo, 2008’s Daily Conversation featured production from the likes of Khrysis, Black Milk and DJ Premier.
Earlier this year, Torae, who also serves as head of A&R for Soulspazm Records, released the retail mixtape Heart Failure.
UPDATE: Billed as Torae’s “solo debut,” For The Record will release November 1. In addition to the previously reported Nottz and Large Professor contributions, esteemed producers such as Pete Rock, 9th Wonder, Diamond D and previous album-partner Marco Polo are involved. The album will be released on Internal Affairs Entertainment.
