The video for “Bown Down” was shot guerrilla style while Deniro Farrar enjoyed a strong showing at SXSW in Austin, TX just two weeks ago. The video cuts through clips of Deniro and Denzel in the back streets and alleyways of Austin to their energetic performances. Deniro performed eight shows over the course of three days at the Brisk Bodega stage, Pitchfork Party, House of Aura and more. Deniro commands full attention when he’s on stage, delivering powerful live performances by pouring all his energy in engaging the crowd.
After multiple impressive live performances, VIBE Magazine claimed Deniro is one of the three artists to watch after SXSW with additional positive feedback coming from the likes of Global Grind to Rolling Stone. “Deniro is the rare rapper who’s pretty much guaranteed to win people over with his live show,” said Noisey.
“We came through SXSW and killed every stage! Excited to be gearing up for my Rebirth EP coming in May,” said Deniro Farrar. “I have a lot of dope visuals like this I plan on dropping between now and then so stay tuned!”
Deniro’s debut EP Rebirth on VICE Records / Warner Bros Records, scheduled for May 20th, comes after years of imposing, hard-hitting lyrics on a series of mixtapes and organic growth in creating his “Cult Rap” following. With his consistent lineup of mixtapes, The Patriarch, The Patriarch II, Kill Or Be Killed, Destiny Altered, Feel This and other projects, Deniro made his stamp on the hip hop world, having earned recognition from XXL Magazine as a “Freshmen Cover” nominee to Stereogum and Pitchfork.
