‘SNY’ or ‘Sonny’ is a recording artist hailing from the golden beaches of the Gold Coast Australia, he has been breaking down barriers from a young age. His debut album “The Distance Between Dreams” debuted at #67 on the Australian iTunes Album Charts and hit #7 on the Australian Hip-Hop/Rap Charts. He now comes flying out of the box with his latest single and supporting visual, entitled, “I Might”. An intense rapper, SNY’s delivery is fueled by reckless abandon, an impatient thirst for adrenaline and a flagrant disregard for authority. In keeping with his reputation for creating emotive, exhilaratingly fierce intro tracks, on “I Might” he flows passionately over a grandiose orchestral-styled beat, and there’s a couple of lines in particular which sticks out the most, giving us a clue to SNY’s mindset: “Got my wings out now, and I’m flying right now, and I’m high right now. I’m just doing what I want, walking how I want, talking how I want.”
SNY is an incredible rapper, and he’s got enough energy to potentially shake up the game. The excellent production serves as fuel for the fire, and the result is a banger of a track, hands down. Malicious production, hard-hitting rhymes, and a killer vibe make “I Might” a can’t-miss.
It exemplifies a winning mentality, in all its glory. Though SNY is emotional and energetic, there’s a relaxed vibe about his delivery that actually puts more weight on what he’s rapping. It’s the song that bubbles with the most infectious joy. It makes you relate to the Australian rapper’s grind and want to share in any success he achieves.
Listening through his catalog you can hear how SNY applies his melodic bark to a wide, kinetic range of beats, and his verses on “I Might” indicate that he’s never had so much at stake on a personal level. There’s more urgency in both his bravado and his reflection.
Thanks to that bravado, this single can be described in one word: exciting. But while much of this track’s strength comes from SNY’s impenetrable flow and the grandiose instrumental, it’s not like he doesn’t have things to say. His language tends to be direct, and there’s wisdom in his grit.
Sometimes SNY backs away from street rap stylings in favor of euphoric pop, like on “Drip Walk”, “Livin” or “Moncler”. Those songs, however, don’t disrupt his style at all; in fact, SNY sounds really comfortable on them. There are plenty of people who’d argue that SNY should be bigger than he currently is. Then again, he has been working hard towards earning a spotlight for himself.
In the rap game artists have to scratch and fight for the respect of the public. And respect isn’t some tangible commodity you can grab up and hoard. Building a formidable profile is precarious business, but “I Might” establishes SNY as an artist with the ambition to go big and the finesse to stick his landing.
