Deniro Farrar, known for his imposing, hard-hitting lyrics, has had quite a year since signing with Vice/Warner. He released his Rebirth EP, which received a nearly perfect “XL” score from XXL, took his Cult Rap movement to Austin for a successful 8-show run at SXSW and is now gearing up for his tour with Denzel Curry. “The Bow Down Tour” marks the first time Deniro will be headlining a national tour; It only seemed fitting to name the tour as such after the two released their hit single “Bow Down,” to critical acclaim earlier this year. The tour will be passing through the northwest in October with dates in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver.
Dante Qushawan Farrar, aka Deniro Farrar, is a rising rapper born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. After gathering momentum in late 2011 with the release of “Destiny Altered”, his 25-track debut, mix-tape he’s went on to release several other projects since. h is Steadily gaining recognition from all the major blogs because of his unique rhyme style and exceptional production collaborations with some of the most progressive young producers in music. Deniro has toured and opened for Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, NAS, Young Jeezy, Wale, Big K.R.I.T., Public Enemy, Chiddy Bang, and PAC DIV.
Denzel Curry is creating plenty of buzz of his own as well. His core fanbase derives in part from his one-time membership in the hip-hop crew Raider Klan. The group was the brainchild of Miami rapper Spaceghostpurrp, who built his own career as a rapper/producer by reanimating the corpse of ’90s regional hip-hop—particularly of the West Coast and Memphis varieties. Although early on he gained a considerable amount of press for creating lo-fi retro raps—even signing a deal with indie label 4AD—Purrp has remained closer to a cult success, rather than anything resembling crossover. His wasn’t too far from the original A$AP Mob fanbase: Internet-savvy weirdos fetishizing cassette tapes and the mystique of lo-fi sonics, replicating the flows of early eras, caught up in the cachet of Clinton-era rap ephemera.
