There’s a lot of rap and hip-hop coming out of Canada, and SonReal is an example of the nation’s most determined up-and-comers. He built up a loyal fan base thanks to the wonders of the internet, and SonReal released his first mixtape in 2011. After the release of 2012’s Words I Said, he signed with Black Box Recordings, and was nominated for two Juno Awards, which are basically Canadian Grammys. As the supporting act for Jon Bellion in Detroit, he’s met a lot of praise, and if you were impressed with him then, you’ll certainly be into seeing him headline.
