Interview by: Martin Bauman Be on the lookout for SonReal this year. With the recent release of his highly-anticipated Words I Said mixtape, and the upcoming release of his full-length album Good News, the Vancouver artist is making a strong case as to why 2012 could very well be his year. As he tells us, "I feel like I've got the skills to be at the top, I feel like I've got the mind-state." The Come Up Show caught up with SonReal the day after Words I Said dropped to talk about his mixtape, his recent comparisons to Canada's major hip-hop export, and his mom's rapping skills, among other things. Hit the skip to check out the interview.
SonReal just dropped his highly-anticipated Words I Said mixtape today, and it does not disappoint. Once again, the Vancouver artist proves that he deserves to be taken seriously in the rap game, with complex rhyme schemes and just damn good rapping. Words I Said is 18 tracks long, and deep: not many filler tracks here. Early favourites are "Intro/No Not Really", "Alone", "Back Home", "Celebrate", the Muneshine-produced "Feel It", and the Dilla-produced "I Know I Never Say This". We also get an early leak of "Extra Extra", off his upcoming Good News album, which goes hard. Check out the tracklist and stream/download Words I Said below.
This new banger from Vancitys own SonReal has been getting quite a few plays on my iPhone recently. Produced by Superville this track has some crazy drums and a dope guest verse from Saigon (who may or may not be throwing shots at Ye and Jay). This is definitely worth a download and make sure to check out our interview with SonReal. Be on the lookout for SonReal's upcoming project GOOD NEWS coming soon.
