Song of the Day: “World On My Shoulders 3.0” by Deniro Farrar

With the world on his shoulders, Deniro Farrar pens a newly-shared record about teaching morals and values to the youth, the reasons why he and many others in similar communities might commit crimes and expressing being tired of being less fortunate than others, and looking like it. I think saying that he was molested by his cousin and stating that his aunt is a victim of domestic violence by the hand of her own husband, made him seem “normal” and relatable to me, as a listener. In the second verse, the 25-year-old North Carolina-native rapper shares where his main influence(s) derive, which happens to be television and being obsessed with vanity, as a direct result. Though it’s a crepuscular song, it seems to brighten up toward the end of the verse.

“Made it out the hood without those phony niggas next to me,” Farrar raps.

“World On My Shoulders 3.0” is the first single from his forthcoming project, COD2, coming out on my nephew’s 15th birthday (May 15). Looking forward to the second single.
