SonReal aka Aaron Hoffman is a skater turned rapper from the ski town of Vernon who now makes his home in Vancouver. He just released a collab album with TO wunderkind Rich Kidd called The Closers. It’s kind of cool to see two Canuck talents team up, right?
I met SonReal after a long day in a park just off Main Street and Broadway. As we watch dogs play with Frisbees, I get Aaron’s thoughts on SonReal‘s origins, Canadian hip hop and his collab with Rich Kidd.
SonReal “Up Up Up” A track from SonReal‘s solo record Good News.

I also have a BONUS treat for you. Arowbe from Times Neue Roman sent me the TO band’s new vid, “Late Night Toronto.” It features a guest spot from Rich Kidd. Check it out.
