Although this appeared on Torch’s last project “UFO” he gets the Boss to add a verse and push it as an official single.
What’s going on, Sermon on the line with Maybach Music, Specialyst Ent and Triple C’s own, Torch. How’s life treating you?
What’s popping bro? How are you?
I’m good, I’m good. You’ve had a busy week. U.F.O. dropped, “Bang Yo City” video is out and you were featured on XXL’s Show & Prove too. Were you surprised at the amount of support you got with U.F.O?
Yeah, I wasn’t really too surprised because I felt like it was overdue. I just feel like peoples are actually starting to realize what’s been there forever, you know what I’m saying? That’s kind of why I labeled the project U.F.O. It stood for un-forgotten. It’s stands for underestimated, forgotten and overlooked. From under financial oppression to under federal observation, you know?
Do you feel like being in Triple C’s, a lot of people overlooked your talent?
I feel like people overlooked Triple C’s period. It’s a new situation right now, its new energy. Shout out to Gunplay, he got that “Rollin’” record. Shout out to Young Breed. I’m doing my numbers right now, and so a lot of things on the horizon, feel me?
With the project, what was the creative process like? And do you feel like it was easier to do a solo project over a group project?
I set out to change everyone’s perception and opinions of what they thought Triple C’s was and what Torch stood for. A lot of people assume I’m from Miami when I’m really from the Bronx. So, I just felt I needed to make a real well rounded project that shows the talents of being up north and down south.
I mean, both of them is really easy to me, but with the solo project I was in complete control. I picked my own beats, I was at the mixes, I told them what to turn up and what to turn down – shout out to Eddie Mix one of the best engineers in the world.
Yeah, this artwork looks way better than the last one. Torch recurits Red Cafe, Masspike Miles, & Pusha T for this collabo off his upcoming “U.F.O.” mixtape. Yes, that’s the Stylistics sample. After the jump, check out the mixtape trailer.
