“I made this video a few weeks before he was killed,” Farrar tells VIBE. “I sent it to him and he told me how real it was. Little did he or myself know that this video would be telling his story. But he’s not the only one. It’s been so many police officers wrongfully killing our people for centuries. My brother and videographer James Rico wrote the treatment with that in mind. We just wanted to shed light on what’s taking place in our community.” He goes on to say, “It’s not a black or white thing, just a wrong or right thing.”
North Caroling rapper, Deniro Farrar is dedicating #FreeTuneTuesdays to his incarcerated brother Antonio “Tune” Farrar who was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to at least 18 years in prison.
Three years ago, his brother’s claim of self-defense was rejected, so using his own creative platform, Farrar is shedding light to the injustices that plague the country’s judicial and mass incarceration systems. This short film directed by James Rico. The video foreshadows the death of friend and fellow North Carolina-rapper Daquan Antonio Westbrook aka Lil Donky who was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer.
