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. Based in Brooklyn, VICE is also home to the Black Lips, OFF!, Justice, Snoop Lion, Action Bronson, Raveonettes, Team Spirit, Vybz Kartel and WIN WIN.
Here's their official statement on the matter:
"Deniro Farrar raps like his life and that of his immediate family depends on it. As a full-time MC with two kids, that's likely the case. Though he made a splash his early adoption of next-level cloud rap production Deniro's lyrical content has always remained closer to Earth. His path has not been easy, dogged by violence, drugs, and incarceration. Now, though, things are looking up - we've signed the Charlotte, North Carolina spitter to VICE Records, where he's primed to slay what's left of the game in 2013."
If you didn't know, know you know. We wish Deniro the best of luck.
