“The Process” is a web-series that zeros in on the various methods artists use to reach a creative means. From writing, rhyming, how a beat is produced, to how they actually record-- everyone has a process! Episode Two of “The Process” sheds some light on Torae’s process, as he writes and records his verse to Nina B’s “No Regrets” from her recently released mixtape “Titles Are Played Out!.”
Doe Cigapom (“Deliver On Emotions” & “Can I Get Peace Of Mind”) acronym illustrates his mission to shed light on the very real healing powers of music. Throughout his own difficult life experiences, music has been the remedy for Doe’s peace of mind.
It's been a crazy few weeks for me. Check out the premiere of my new video, "Good Girls (Don't Grown On Trees)" feat. Big Sean. I wrote this song with my big brother Pharrell, and it's produced by another mentor of mine, Wyclef & Sedeck Jean. The video was directed by Alexandre Moors and he killed it!

Produced by Switzerland's Dee Metto, the track finds the Flushing rhymesayer talkin' greasy over chopped-n-screwed samples and slow-rolling percussion, showcasing just how far he can step outside the galaxy....of Queens.
