When you’re working your way from the bottom to the top, there are inevitably going to be dry spells; long, frustrating weeks and months spent busting your ass, running Back and Forth and Back again without any tangible result. On his latest Booth feature, Look at the Sky, rhymesayer DeNiro Farrar and fellow L.A.-by-way-of-Oakland emcee Shady Blaze describe the everyday travails, stresses and perils of their hustle, flowing over the chopped strings and chilly bell arpeggios of FriendZone. Through it all, their determination to succeed remains undiminished; dodging the five-o is nothing compared to another Christmas with “no presents under the f**ckin’ tree.” Fans can find this dogged grind anthem and much more on Farrar and Blaze’s Kill or Be Killed LP, available now for digital purchase via Bandcamp.
