Leondro Pays Ultimate Tribute to His Selfless Mother in “Super Big”

“I praise you, my angel”

Leondro - Super Big

 

With Mother’s Day coming this weekend, rising Toronto rapper Leondro is setting the bar high with “Super Big,” his touching new ode to his hard-working and self-sacrificing mother. Featuring fellow Canadian rapper Yoko Gold, “Super Big” looks back with appreciation and affection on Leondro’s mother’s hardships as “she fought to keep her children’s future bright.”

Leondro will officially premiered “Super Big” at the Easter Seals Telethon in Toronto on April 10. Funds raised through the Easter Seals Telethon help make a difference for children who live with physical disabilities in Ontario. Help our fundraising drive by donating today!

While “Super Big” details Leondro’s difficulty growing up without a father, its main focus is on his good fortune in having a mother who shouldered the burden. As a single parent, Leondro’s mother fought to keep her children out of trouble while still providing food to eat and a roof over their head. “Super Big” is from the perspective of a man who is only now able to fully understand and appreciate the full scope of his mother’s sacrifices.

New Video For Hunnit Released

Today marks the video release of “Hunnit,” the clever new single by tried and true rising Toronto rapper Leondro. “Hunnit” is both the announcement of Leondro’s arrival on the music scene and a tribute to the record label that inspired Leondro. The trap-pop infused gem was prompted by the impact Cash Money Records had on the industry in the late 1990s, an era that saw the rise of hip-hop icons such as Juvenile and Lil Wayne. Smooth and full of flavor, Leondro shines on “Hunnit” via his use of clever wordplay. The release of “Hunnit” marks Leondro’s rise within the hip-hop community, a prospect deemed unlikely following several adolescent run-ins with the law.

Funk You” is Leondro’s honest open letter to “all the doubters” who criticized the embattled rapper during his ascent to a career in hip-hop. The new track signals Leondro’s continued rise within the hip-hop community, a prospect deemed unlikely following several adolescent run-ins with the law. Leondro decided at age twenty that he would make his hard-working mother proud by not becoming the stereotypical “project” kid who ends up in jail. More information on Leondro’s intriguing story of redemption is available on his official website.

According to Leondro, “Funk You” is a song dedicated to all the doubters who criticized the rapper during his journey to stardom:

Growing up, one of the many challenges I faced was dealing with the teachers and peers who said I would never be successful. My response to them is in the lyrics to “Funk You.” I hope they hear it.
