Hip-hop fans are entitled to an experience that is more than just noise. They are entitled to truth, honesty and authenticity. With my sophomore album in the works, I want to keep it 100 with y'all and offer the experience you deserve as supporters of the cause. No glitz and glamour for the cameras, this is all for the people that matter most. Without a label or middle man, I want to build this album with YOU! I'm all about remaining independent - pushing authentic hip-hop in an industry that has handcuffs on too many artists and I need your support. Come enjoy this experience with me and get access to exclusive packages for the supporters only. All for the love, let's push the music & the culture of hip-hop forward.

WHERE DOES YOUR FUNDING GO?

Every cent and dollar contributed goes directly to funding my album and everything in between. As you, my family and supporters, continue to help me raise the money for this album I can put it towards studio time, mixing & mastering, music videos, features for the album, marketing, promotion, physical copies, touring, and more! Nothing goes into my pocket. 

 I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE, TO MY FANS & THE UNITED CAMPAIGN OF 'ENTITLED'

To the right I created some dope rewards for you to receive in return for you helping fund my album. I know we're all still trying to maintain and may not have it all so I made sure to make packages affordable and reasonable so that you get your money's worth! At the end of the day, this is for THE PEOPLE! 

REWARDS

Rewards vary from: 

• Singles

• Exclusive signed previous projects

• Live Skype session 

• Apparel (Such as T-shirts, Hoodies, etc)

• Tickets to a Torae show

• Cameo in my music video

Hell with it! I'll even stop by YOUR HOUSE and play the FULL ALBUM for you or BRING YOU ON STAGE to rock with me. BUT! You better be on point......

I'm more than excited to have everyone involved in this journey of mine with this new album. For years, I've given you consistent quality records and projects with substance. With this new album I will continue to do the same thing. 

As I continue to grow as an artist I want you to grow with me. I'm at a different stage in my life and would love for you all to experience it with me. That's part of the reason this Kickstarter campaign was created.

I wanted to set-up a campaign and a situation where we all win - You receive dope, exclusive rewards and I'm able to give you the most authentic product in the best way possible. LET'S GET IT! #TeamTor

Risks and challenges

There's no doubt that making an album is not an easy task, but this is what I do. I've already given y'all 3 albums, 3 mixtapes & 1 EP with some of the best producers and collaborators in the game. This isn't a matter of if I'll make 'ENTITLED' happen, it's just a matter of which of my fam will ride with me as I deliver a new level of hip-hop that is created specifically for you all.

From finding producers to work with, to booking time with session musicians and engineers, to locking in the right features - at this point in my career I see these challenges as things that simply need to get done.

Let's make it happen!
