Juno-nominated rapper SonReal has had a very big couple of years. The Vancouver-based artist put out a joint tape with Toronto native Rich Kidd in 2012 which saw the duo trade bars over top of Kidd's luxurious production. Last year, SonReal released a handful of singles in anticipation of his new mixtape, one of which was "Everywhere We Go," the infectiously catchy song with a hilarious accompanying video. Now, SonReal has finally put out his solo effort, One Long Day, which features production and guest features from some of the most talented individuals to come out of Canada in recent memory.
To celebrate the release of One Long Day, SonReal hooked up with fellow East Vancouver residents, The Boom Booms, to perform "Let Me" off his new album. Since the two acts only lives a few blocks away from each other, they linked up for an almost-impromptu basement studio jam session. The visuals come courtesy of Dane Collison and Dave Ehrenreich, and "Let Me" is produced by 2oolman.
Catch SonReal preforming with Rich Kidd in Toronto on April 5th.
