Featuring DJ Premier, Sean Price, LIL Fame of M.O.P., Rock of Heltah Skeltah, Guilty Simpson, DJ Revolution & Saukrates. Rapper Torae & Super-Producer Marco Polo have joined forces to release the New York rap album that fans of raw, hardcore Hip-Hop have been waiting for. When it comes to beats and rhymes, Canadian producer Marco Polo and Brooklyn MC Torae don't play, just check the r‚sum‚. Sonically, Double Barrel pays homage to New York's mid-'90's rap scene, when artists like Gang Starr and Wu-Tang Clan reigned supreme. The album's lead track "Party Crashers" is a definite standout, harkening back to that era with its chest thumping percussion and rock solid rhymes. So rather then try to fit in with Hip-Hop's pop set, Torae & Marco chose the unconventional route. Songs like the dramatic "But Wait" and the free associative "Word Play" display Tor's forward-thinking conceptual abilities, while the rock-infused "Danger" stands as one of Marco's finest productions to date. Overall the album is chock-full of the street-influenced rap that fans have come to expect from the two Hip-Hop upstarts.
