During The Chixtape II sessions, Flow & I recorded this little piece. Kept messing out verses up too. Hence the title.
I actually like my verse on this SOOO much. Don’t know why, but I do. Be Cool.
That’s nothing more I love than doing interviews with artists who are constantly grinding, putting themselves out there, progressing and stand for something real. It’s easy for me and other interviewers to want to cover musicians who have blown up but I find it more meaningful when I’m interviewing an artist on their journey to success.
That’s why I’m excited to present our interview with Vancouver based Hip-Hop artist Sonreal. In the past couple of years he has released countless singles, freestyles, music videos and mixtapes like Where’s Waldo and The Lighyear which you can cop at Sonreal’s website. I caught up with Sonreal in Toronto and he talked to me about his progress, the honesty in his music and why we won’t be moving from Vancouver to Toronto any time soon. – Chedo

We’ve all been blessed with them. Shiieet, it’s what makes us who we are. Handle them, disregard them, face them and create them, whatev’s….We’re all guilty and have been in the wrong at sometime in our life but more than that, wrong has somehow plagued us all directly or indirectly.Whether work, family, spouse, friend or stranger, remember,……shit happens.So how do you plan to deal with it when it does?let me know.

CONGRATS to my celebrity crush. This is great! Tika’s BEEN on the grind with her “Intimate & Interactive” shows which have not only evolved into “The Known [UN]Known” (doper name) but have also now graduated to the next level of performance venues…Harbourfront Centre. This is EXACTLY how you’re supposed to do it:
Start small. Be consistent. Grow.
To announce the first show in the new venue, Tika’s written up a likkle blog post talking about the event, its history and the artists that will be blessing the stage on February 4th. It’s a FREE event and the headliners are Rochelle Jordan and Shi Wisdom aka THE SHOW IS GOING TO BE NUTSO. Anyways…here’s some words from Tika. Peep the link below for the full post.
I don’t even know where or how to begin. In July of 2010, I began on a little journey that I would’ve never fathomed would’ve brought me here. Before I even start, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tika Simone. I am kind of a Jill of all Trades in this city. To say that I wear many hats is an understatement. I act, I am a musician, and I run the city’s first Urban Audition-only open mic night in the city.
I initially started this project because I noticed that for a city like Toronto that has amazing visibility in talent, there was a noticeable lack of local shows/platforms. I decided to take charge. I found a small venue and decided to have weekly shows. Each show had a headliner. A fabulous Headliner FROM Toronto with local fans, local pull & incredible talent. We had headliners from Erik Flowchild to Andreena Mill to Kim Davis to The Airplane Boys to Natasha Waterman to The OBGM’s to Tre Mission to Tanika Charles to Masia One. The list goes on and on and on. Each show had openers. Openers that HAD to audition due to the fact that they were opening FOR the headliner. Fastforward to 2012. 53 shows later. YES. 53 shows. Over 300 auditions. Countless audiences. Beautiful headliners. Amazing opening acts. Moments. Memories. Growth. Youth. Smiles. Thank-you’s. Love. TALENT. And most importantly SUPPORT. I am elated to announce that The Known UNKnown has partnered with Harbourfront Centre and this will officially be our new home.
