Marco Polo & Torae – Double Barrel (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

(“n****s got wait till 2 in the morn’ to hear Tor get on/it’s like that now, it won’t be like that for long” – true words…SNSS can relate)

I swear, when I watched this for the first time, Tor reached through my monitor and slapped the ish out me.  It’s that hard.

Cop Marco & Torae’s excellent Double Barrel project if you haven’t already…though if you haven’t, Tor’s probably slapped you too…and rightly so.

Marco Polo & Torae – Party Crashers (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 16th, 2009 by Hyphen

Peep the new video from one of the best albums of the year, Marco Polo & Torae’s Double Barrel, out now on Duck Down.  I’ve mentioned it before on the site, but if you’re looking for some of that good ol’ fashioned boom bap ish that will break your neck, this album is for you.

That said, there’s range on the project too…it’s not all the same hyped up vibe as this video would suggest.  We played “Crashing Down” on last week’s SNSS and it’s more sentimental and reflective.  Tor kills that joint, detailing the effects the record industry’s demise has on artists who put their hearts and souls into this music, only to see fans bootleg their hard work for free.

Support these dudes.  Cop Double Barrel now.

Sidenote, the last scene shows the kind of party I’d crash.  Run that cake son.

Marco Polo & Torae – Double Barrel Training, Pt. 1

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Videos on May 12th, 2009 by Hyphen

Hahaha MP & Tor are fools for this one.  Seeing Tor get his Rocky on is hyping me up for their upcoming album, Double Barrel, which drops on June 2nd on Duck Down (what up to the brothers ‘Ha!).  For all those complaining about a lack of that classic NYC boom-bap griminess in today’s music scene, this LP is gonna smack the ish out you.
