The more you learn about Canada’s rap scene, the more you realize just how much good music gets stopped at the border. Luckily, this song and its accompanying video had a successful journey and made it to our inbox without difficulty. Featuring a character and some visual flourishes clearly inspired by Napoleon Dynamite and Wes Anderson, the video for “Everywhere We Go” is a humorous take on Vancouver rapper SonReal’s growing acceptance in the hip-hop community despite some initial hostility.
The song itself has similar themes (of course), but beyond that, SonReal’s flows and melodies are worth noting. He raps about five different ways in one song and it’s not because he’s compelled to by the beat. Listen/take notes below and look for a nice cameo toward the end.
The song is also available on iTunes.
