When you think hip-hop, North Carolina is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. Nevertheless, hip-hop knows no borders and thanks to the internet, we often don't know the regions of the music we receive either.
It seems like the lack-of-music we we're talking about on last week's Underrated Audio has finally come to an end. This past week we've seen huge songs drop from Drake, Fabolous, A$AP Rocky, Lupe Fiasco and Ace Hood, just to name a few.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
Qushawan Farrar, aka Deniro Farrar, is a rising rapper born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina - specifically the Little Rock Apartments and the high-crime community of Tuckaseegee (704 Queen's City, CLT).
Deniro Farrar grows his fanbase with each release, and we have a feeling Rebirth will be no different. The rapper has cultivated a unique sound, that has a dark, hazy, and often times haunting feeling.
We've been supporting Deniro consistently since March, and couldn't be happier to learn he's taken his career to the next level. After several years of relentless grinding, the rising Charlotte, North Carolina emcee has officially signed a record deal with VICE and Warner Bros. Records.
