After creating a buzz with his first solo mixtape, a hip hop-blues fusion project Good Morning Blues alongside legendary blues musician Wes Mackey, Cityreal took a break following the death of his mother from breast cancer in December 2015. Fast forward to now and Cityreal collaborated with piano prodigy and fellow composer Todor Kobakov (Metric, Stars, k-os, Dan Mangan) to arrange large orchestral string and brass parts with the Vancouver Film Orchestra for this hard hitting, issues-oriented rap single. Raised in Vancouver, Cityreal has supported a number of significant hip hop acts on live tours and spot dates including Ghostface Killah, Big K.R.I.T, Jazz Cartier, Three 6 Mafia, Swollen Members and many more.
