Your boy Saukrates drops off a fresh new video for his SonReal assisted single, “#FYEO,” off the recently released Amani EP. Big Soxx latest record was recently nominated for Rap Recording of the Year at the Juno Awards, and it only seems right that he drops a new set of visuals for (in my opinion) the dopest track on the project.
If you want to see Saukrates in person, you can catch him February 24th at Toronto off the Page: Everybody knows it’s the T.Dot, an event celebrating the extensive vinyl collection at the Toronto Reference Library. Saurkates will also be making another stop to our neck of the woods Thursday March 12th as he rolls through Western University to speak at Walrus Talks, an event that puts the spotlight on creativity.
Saukrates 2015 jump off seems to be off to a great start. Be sure to check out the video for,”#FYEO,” and let us know if you plan on checking out any of the upcoming events Big Soxx will be appearing at in the comment section below.

The organization’s founder and CEO Organik, along with a healthy supporting cast, help KOTD bring audiences the very best events and names in the sport. This weekend, Feb 7th-8th, the team is bringing what could be the most anticipated event in battle rap history to Toronto’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Their flagship event, Blackout, is on it’s fifth anniversary and fans couldn’t be more excited. .
