Deniro Farrar is a hardnosed, tough-talking North Carolina rapper who manages to radiate despair and menace without wasting any syllables. Shady Blaze is a Main Attrakionz associate from the Bay Area, a Twista/Bone Thugs-style fast-rap specialist who goes all melodiously mile-a-minute over blissed-out cloud-rap beats. The two make an oddly effective pairing on the new collaborative mixtape Kill Or Be Killed. The tape has contributions from a pretty huge chunk of the current internet-rap underground: Main Attrakionz, Haleek Maul, Tree, ST 2 Lettaz, Friendzone, Boldy James, Ryan Hemsworth. And the mixtape track “Cold Blood,” it bears mentioning, samples Goblin’s theme to Suspiria, which sounds fucking awesome. Check the tape out below.
