Deniro Farrar @ NXNE 2013
NXNE 2013, Day 4

North Carolina rapper Deniro Farrar had a bit of breakout moment last year with Kill or Be Killed, his collaborative mixtape with Shady Blaze, and this year he caught ears with his solo mixtape, The Patriarch, which came out this past March. He's got ties to the cloud rap scene (he works with Ryan Hemsworth, Main Attrakionz, Keyboard Kid, etc), but similarly to what A$AP Rocky did on this year's Long. Live. A$AP, Deniro expands on the sound and at the rate that he's producing interesting material, he isn't fated to be pigeonholed with it. Deniro's already got the followup to The Patriarch, titled The Patriarch II, out now. You can stream the entire thing below, and it's available to download for $1 at bandcamp.

Deniro Farrar just played a big free rap show in Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square for NXNE, which also included Ludacris, Joey Bada$$, The Underachievers, Fat Tony, and more. A full set of pictures from that show is on its way HERE, but meanwhile check out pictures of Deniro from that show, in this post.

Hell yeah, your soul's becoming enlightened and shit. You definitely gotta check out there recent projects too. One of the best combinations of deep lyricism with trap and hype.

I know a lot of Charlotte rappers are scratching their heads right now wondering how Deniro Farrar and his affiliates are blowing up and getting shine right now. Here it is since the late 80's NC and VA has experienced a huge influx of northerners moving in mainly NY since then the states have gone through a lot of changes regarding the culture.
