(AllHipHop News) It has been a monumental year for Deniro Farrar. The buzzing North Carolina emcee dropped the well-received mixtapes The Patriarch and The Patriarch II, and he opened shows for Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar. Farrar's 2013 just became even more memorable now that the Leader of Cult Rap has officially signed with Vice Records/Warner Bros Records.
"Signing to VICE/Warner is the greatest feeling in the world," said Farrar. "I've always been a fan of their media content, and it was clear that they understood my brand. I feel special signing to them because they don’t have that many rappers on their roster. I feel like a student in a small class that will get more attention from the teacher. Plus, they’re also under Warner Bros. Records which means I get the best of both worlds.”
Farrar joins Queens rapper Action Bronson at Brooklyn-based Vice Records. The label, founded in 2002, is a division of VICE Media which also includes a magazine and the HBO series Vice. Farrar's future projects, including his debut EP slated for 2014, will be distributed by Warner Brothers Records.
"What first impressed and attracted me to Deniro Farrar, was his brutally honest lyrics and his ability to display an unconventional amount of passion through music, both on record and live on stage," said Eric McLellan, Director of A&R, Sire Records/Warner Bros. Records. "Deniro had what I thought were interesting songs, a unique voice and delivery, a charismatic and confident personality and major star qualities."
Farrar recently performed at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta, Georgia and was featured on the A3C Volume 3 album. He is about to set out on an East Coast tour running through November.
