2014 | Rap Recording of the Year | SonReal | | The JUNO Awards

SonReal is a new school leader. With 2013 JUNO Award and MMVA nominations, this young artist has independently put all eyes on him through consistently putting out interesting innovative material. Notorious for releasing mix tapes that have an album feel, it is easy to see why SonReal is at the forefront of not only Vancouver’s hip hop scene, but the Canadian music industry as a whole. SonReal consistently delivers high quality content in each mix tape, live show, album and collaboration project he brings to fans. Most recently the success of his joint project – The Closers – with Canadian producer/ MC Rich Kidd, garnered them a JUNO Award nomination and an MMVA nomination. The duo toured with Mac Miller on a run of national college dates, performed with Canadian super stars, Down With Webster and shared the stage at a JUNO Week performance with Platinum selling artist, Classified. Now with the momentum of his many mix tapes and The Closers behind him, SonReal has hit the ground running with his viral video success for his lead single "Everywhere We Go." With over half a million views, and a top 10 spot on the Much Music Countdown things are looking bright for his 2014 album record release!
