The News:

Mayland duo DTMD have a new single, "Keep On (feat. yU)", from their forthcoming September Mello Music Group debut album Makin' Dollas.
 
Lryical Spotlight:

I asked god what he want from me
Stepped out the mirror thought of what I really wanted to be
Thought it was clearer when this rap shit was fun to me
I mean its cool but nowadays
Its all about whatever pays comfortably
 
Who's DTMD?

Dunc on the beats and Toine on the mic, the moniker Dunc and Toine Makin' Dollas (DTMD) is a nod to the classic East Coast act EPMD, but the sound is DMV.  Dunc & Toine both have worked closely with standout producer/emcee Oddisee to polish their crafts at a very young age (yeah these guys are like 20 years old, but have the skills of some serious vets). You may recognize Dunc from his contribution to Diamond District's critically acclaimed album In The Ruff or Toine from his appearance on "Different Now" with Oddisee. Last week 2DopeBoyz featured DTMD in their (2)Dope to Sleep On series.  After putting out a stellar EP called The Basics, they signed to Mello Music Group and are releasing their debut album Makin' Dollas September 20th!

Torae performs the first leak from his highly-anticipated debut LP, For The Record, live from Brooklyn's Public Assembly.

Torae will be releasing his debut LP, "For The Record," on 11-1-2011, featuring production from DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Marco Polo, !llmind, Pete Rock, Diamond D, Buckwild, Nottz, Large Professor, Fatin (and Torae as well).  I have included the essential LP information below.

Included is the MP3 for "Do The Math" (produced by Large Professor) from Torae's "For The Record": http://hulkshare.com/z0y69ddz99q4 .

Press Release for Torae's For The Record LP:

Hip hop recording artist Torae announces his upcoming debut offering; For The Record, on his Internal Affairs Entertainment imprint. Slated for release on November 1, 2011 the album is an ample fifteen tracks worth of high-caliber production and impeccable rhyme.

For The Record is sure to transcend the expectations of new listeners and staunch supporters alike, with veteran MCs like Masta Ace heralding it as his greatest contribution thus far.

"The combination of stellar production and a focused and more introspective Torae makes this his best work to date," the fellow Brooklyn native stated.

Known for a roster of impressive collaborations, Torae has assembled an awe-inspiring crew of beatsmiths for accompaniment. From the renowned Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Diamond D and Large Professor; to those Torae labels "new legends," 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Fatin, Illmind, Eric G., Marco Polo and Nottz.

For The Record raises the bar Torae has set with previous releases. A refreshing return to the multifarious nature of 2008's "Daily Conversation", the project is a notable change from 2009's Double Barrel with Marco Polo, and this year's mono-thematic Heart Failure EP. Fans will hear his skills sharpened; an array of cadences and intricately weaved rhyme patterns. He is also at his most vulnerable and transparent; providing a view through a wide-angle lens at the man behind the MC, as heard on "Panorama" and "Reflection." Still there's no shortage of the hard-hitting audacity we love on tracks like "Shakedown" and "You Ready."
