SonReal – The Open Letter
Spending many nights working on his craft and making even more sacrifices along the way, SonReal released his debut album One Long Dream which ultimately shot to the top of the iTunes Hip Hop charts. He now returns with a visual for one of its most personal tracks, “The Open Letter.”
More story-telling than an actual song, Son puts the raps to the left and instead chronicles his musical journey from paving roads with his father in British Columbia to his major label deal to the release of One Long Dream after getting dropped from the label, even opening up about the loss of his father and the near-fatal bus accident that almost claimed his life recently. The video is actually composed of footage from his entire life, as Son narrates throughout.
