JP Beats: “Better Than Me” feat Torae


Torae4 e1352476226657 JP Beats: Better Than Me feat Torae

“King of quotes… quote that.”

Torae turns one of my favorite Kanye quotes into a new banger off JP Beats’ recently released LP, The Warning.  “Better Than Me” is Torae voicing his frustrations and bewilderment with a music world that places style ahead of substance.  Check out the record below, as well as the track list for The Warning.  The compilation features  Royce Da 5’9″, Keith Murray, George Clinton, and others.
