From humble beginnings, singer Sir Darryl Farris (stylized SIR) has achieved acclaim in the music industry. Through songwriting, consistent output and energetic connections, Farris’ time has come. Jan. 19, 2018 officially symbolizes the one-year mark for this confident Top Dawg Entertainment artist. Hence, to appropriately commemorate the milestone, the soulful genius plans to release his debut album, “November.” Nevertheless, this January release features ultra-frigid visuals with warm and kinetic movements.
Sir’s exponential growth
Notably, hip-hop artist Ab-Soul strongly motivated Sir and influenced his ability to expand creatively. By emulating the style of Ab-Soul, Sir exhibits growth, inner vision, and awareness. Romance and funk beats abound on the new release. Indeed, his newest album explores conceptual themes based on the mystique of different intimate conquests. Sir combines elements of rhythm with a thoughtful approach that usually comes with years of professional experience. Without a doubt, the maturation process within Top Dawg’s camp completes at an exponentially higher rate than other labels.
Artists tend to grow quickly at Top Dawg. Reasons for the quick growth include the rotation of instrumentation and the talented personalities that comprise TDE. As a well-oiled machine, the company has provided tools within it that make it possible for all artists to thrive. In addition, the existence of a balanced roster provides utmost fusion. Significantly, every artist brings exclusive abilities.
Collective effort: Sir and Top Dawg Entertainment
As a matter of fact, J.LBS, a key producer and striving individual in TDE’s camp hosts a few production credits on “November.” Sir shares brilliant chemistry with nine different producers. Sir recruited Andre Harris and D.K. The Punisher for a few tracks as well. Thus, the execution standards and protocols being constructed by all those involved at T.D.E. speaks volumes for our generation.
Sir asserts his activity within multiple different spheres of influence. Recently, he featured on a song with Anna Wise and collaborated with 9th Wonder for multiple collections of songs. His album, “November” brings the listener on a neo-soul tinged space odyssey. The dark, r&b concept album features soul blends that strike at the core of the audience. Sir preaches the importance of romantic security, which according to him, can be used to accept one’s own flaws.
Along the harmonious journey, a wing-woman by the name of “K” accompanies the album. The female robotic companion provides system checks, progress alerts, and emotional comfort. To sum it up, “K” gives “November’s” narrative a cohesive binding.
Reaching the Core: “November”
“November” emphasizes the intersection of pride and heart. To allow audiences to truly feel emotions in the present, Sir creates an understanding of entire bodies of time. Between love and leaving, Sir navigates through the present and peels back layers of romantic encounters.
Sir, the soulful purist, evolved his craft and exhibits Kendrick-esque progressive ability. Overall, the calm beginning and eruptive route Sir embarks upon resembles Kendrick’s style. With cozy vibes and spine-chilling sounds, Sir clearly blends together elements of a masterpiece. This album provides visual clarity and represents the advancement of a devoted individual. Sir and Miguel travel to Portland, Oregon on Feb. 22 to begin the North American War and Leisure tour.
