WELL$ Feat. Deniro Farrar
Charlotte, NC is a booming town in the South that's known for its football team, its powerful banking sector, and its polished downtown. What doesn't get much exposure are the outskirts of the city, where an exciting rap scene is currently brewing. Today, two of the young leaders of that scene, Well$ and Deniro Farrar, have teamed up for a new video that explores the grittier (and much more stimulating) side of the Carolina metropolis. The video comes to the brand new remix of "98 Juvie," one of Well$' biggest tracks, released in September 2014.

Charlotte, NC "cult rap" emcee Deniro Farrar hasn't released much new music since his June EP Cliff of Death 2, and now, strangely enough, he has shared a new video to a song that he dropped over two and a half years ago.

Deniro Farrar "Same Ol'/So Long" Video
Where has Deniro Farrar been? Feels like I haven't seen his name around these parts as much as I used too. And by "these parts" I mean the internet. Wherever he's been hiding, he comes out today to release a visual for two songs that appeared on his June album Cliff Of Death 2. "Same Ol'" almost acts like an answer to my question, with Deniro rapping, "I be with the same ol' clique, same ol' bitch.."
Deniro Farrar "Tired" Video
Thus far, Deniro Farrar's made some seriously dark videos for his Rebirth tracks, and the latest, "Tired," follows suit.

Deniro Farrar "Burning Bills" Video
Deniro Farrar isn't one to shy away from intense themes in his music, as he usually opts to spit real life tales devoid of happy endings, and that mentality carries through to his videos.

Duru Tha King Feat. Deniro Farrar
Longtime friends DuRu Tha King and Deniro Farrar have paired up for a number of heaters in the past, and their latest, "Set" is no exception. The two Charlotte, NC natives post up outside an apartment complex for the majority of the video, with DuRu spitting over a delicate piano line for the verses, while Farrar delivers a hook over a busier sonic backdrop. Amid these buzzing syths and yawning vocal samples, Farrar's deep voice finds a nice pocket, which he continues to exploit for his verse, the last on the track. NC is lucky to have these two MCs repping it.

Deniro Farrar has grown a lot over the past few years, and with his growth in the rap game he's brought up alongside him Duru Tha King. The two North Carolina natives connect for a music video for "Torn Love," as Duru continues to rep his hometown, albeit reinvented slightly, with his #NewCharlotte movement. The song has the same sensibilities as the bulk of Deniro and Duru's music- it's dark, haunting and slightly lonely. Watch the new music video above, directed by nthony Supreme & Ryan Summerfield.
