All hail the return of Ty Farris, with his intense new track "N.W.C.R."



The streets haven’t heard the roar of Ty Farris since his mixtape Barcode 2 in 2015 and his album Rydah Music in 2014. Enter “N.W.C.R.” (Nigga Who Can Rap), a new single released this week produced by Trox and features Nolan the Ninja, A-minus, and SJ Soko. The track is a lyrical onslaught from beginning to end that can’t be categorized as boom-bap or trap but just hardcore. The full album Room 39 will be dropped later this year.
