Professor Toon Release: With Deniro Farrar + special guest
Deniro Farrar and Professor Toon, goddamn, if they don’t have the charisma to bring down the house and make it to success, i don’t know who does. Able to control and move through the crowd with ease, the atmosphere of the entire night was an incredible visual representation of each song.
Their swag and whole persona was that of potential stars in the making. The presence of a major figure head in the hip hop community combined with an unfathomable stage presence makes for a particularly fluid show, even in a relatively small venue like the Motorco.
Deniro Farrar brings a dope new style of conscious trap music to the scene. At some points he has the crowd near mosh pit levels when his hardcore trap music drops, at others he had us focused intently on his conscious thoughts. His energy is contagious and draws even the most reserved to openly vibe. At times Farrar would break into a conscious rap A Capella, bringing up such topics as gentrification in an area such as Durham which has recently seen such. Somehow able to transition from knowledge delivery to “Jump Around” trap hypnosis, Farrar is definitely someone to check out live.
Professor Toon makes a big appearance with new music that is both introspective and gives the audience a look into what made him who he is. Emphasizing on melody, Toon acknowledges his own perspective on personal struggles and how he’s overcome them. It’s almost as if he was using his music as a therapeutic release that makes it easy for listeners to relate to.
You have to be sure to check out Professor Toon and Deniro Farrar live. Great show and performance…
Maybe J Cole won’t be the only one to represent North Carolina properly.
