Fellow Sirius host and true artist at heart Torae stopped by SITM to talk about his new project ‘Entitled‘ which dropped January 15th via iTunes. It features some dope production between Jahlil Beats and !llmind along with a few features from legendary Pete Rock, Saul Williams and Mack Wilds.

While on the show he put on his A&R hat with our very own Rich Nice, DJ Wonder and Tracy G to run through a few tracks as citizens called in to give their honest feedback. First up was an original from DJ Premiere, who placed the Kanye West “I Love Kanye” vocals over one of his classic beats followed by Azealia Banks “Big Big Beat”.

He also spoke on the Oscars and Chris Rock as many were debating on boycotting while many were anxious to see exactly how he would address the issues at hand. Not to mention a rather awkward appearance from Stacey Dash that had many confused. Check out the full interview below and be sure to support Torae both through his music as well as tuning in to Hip Hop Nation at 5pm EST on Sirius Channel 44.
