Bold, charismatic, impactful, and climbing his way to the top, SonReal has become one of Hip-hop’s biggest phenomenons this year! This five-time nominated artist for the JUNO awards, two of which were at the 2016 JUNO’S for “Rap Recording of the Year” and “Video of the Year” for his EP, For The Town, has made quite the impression on his fans, media, and artists.
This individual has a brand, has identified it, and has known how to present it!
MTV had actually gone so far as to call him:
Drake’s Biggest Competition at the JUNO Awards.
His music can be described as unique, dynamic, and forceful— he experiments with the various sub-genres of the Hip-hop world, thus bringing a fresh new edge to the field. His music is as multi-dimensional and alien-esque as that of Tyler the Creator’s and Kid Cudi’s, but as strong and powerful as Eminem’s and Kanye’s. This artist knows how to actually create and recreate with the bit and pieces of beats and rhythms that he collects.
Huffington Post wrote, “SonReal has his own flow, his own style, his own message. And he’s pretty damn good at it.” And it shows in the millions of Spotify streams and YouTube views he has gained from his infectious and attention-grabbing projects such as Good News (2012), The Closers (2013), One Long Day (2014), and lastly his EP For The Town.
He has recently, with much pride, released his music video for his track and “Can I Get A Witness,” which you can watch here now!
To hear more from him, here is his Spotify:
In addition to and in celebration of the track’s launch, SonReal has announced the commencement of his “The World’s Worst Contest,” a contest he has put in place for any lucky winner and a friend to win a chance to venture on a once-in-a-lifetime 20+ hour roundtrip bus ride to enjoy a weekend in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, home of the notorious Netflix series “Making A Murder.” SonReal has described it as a chance to get a “scenic tour of the town on a Segway, dinner for 2 at Taco Bell and a great night’s sleep at the prestigious Lakeview Motel.” If won, but the prize trip is not wanted, than an alternative prize of $700 USD can be asked for in lieu of the “experience.”
