SonReal reveals alter ego in new video; Steven
SonReal, from the west coast of Canada, usually a pretty serious underground rapper, has released his satirical new video for “Everywhere We Go.”
Yet to release any details of his new album, the Canadian MC has given his fans suitable entertainment to keep them busy until he does. It’s nice to see him break out of his shell a little bit and do something silly – all rappers do at some point.
The new video showcases SonReal in his digs as his alter ego – Steven – who is somewhat of a caricature of himself. Being a caucasian in a predominantly urban genre of music, it’s hard to escape stereotypes of the “white nerd” and the uptight impression.
In the video, he plays the character of Steven, being the star of SonReal’s video shoot, pretending he’s excited to meet the prominent Canadian rap star after he’s done acting in the video.
Steven and his crew gallivant across town gaining serious recognition from all the pretty girls and cool cats around the pool and down the street. They’ve got everybody asking “who that there?” everywhere they go.
