“With fierce rhymes committed to the cause of decolonization, Snotty Nose Rez Kids simultaneously nod to the contemporary hip-hop sound they employ and to environmental issues directly affecting Indigenous people.” – Complex
“kinetic and cartoonish chemistry similar to Flatbush Zombies, as well as a bold confrontation of white supremacy with classic hip-hop tropes.” – The Fader
Toronto, ON – April 14, 2020 – Following the April 3rd release of their new EP, Born Deadly, Snotty Nose Rez Kids share the visual for TMZ. Premiering today, exclusively via World Star Hip Hop, the video sees Yung Trybez and Young D bombarded by in-your-face flashing cameras, disruptive press conferences, and some of the more scathing comments pulled from the internet. Watch here.
TMZ is SNRK’s response to the invasiveness of the media and the ‘Twitter Finger’ reactive world of social media. The track speaks to the resilience of SNRK in the face of criticism and shows them unafraid to be who they are – cutting through the cacophony of the media with their gripping performance and signature humour.
“We’ve learned that we have to stay in the lane we’ve created for ourselves, shut out the hate, and keep doing what we know is working,” SNRK comments.
If you have managed to catch a Snotty Nose Rez Kids show, you know Yung Trybez and Young D were born to rage. That’s what inspired the concept of Born Deadly and its five energy-fueled tracks. In their community, “acting deadly” is a positive affirmation. The two dug up an old class photo from their youth for the cover and aptly named the project, Born Deadly. Further cementing their self-categorized genre of Indigenous Trap, SNRK dive into themes of self-love, community, activism and media critiques with their classic brand of playful lyricism. Influenced by Earthgang, Brockhampton and the Atlanta-sound, SNRK bring a raw power to their music that fans can connect with. Their track, Kobe Face is a thank you letter to the inspiration Bryant instilled in Trybez and D as basketball players and as artists. Channeling that work ethic has resulted in SNRK receiving multiple awards and nominations, amassing over 2.5 million video views, and over 8 millions streams. Their unique, raw and honest perspective is quickly solidifying Snotty Nose Rez Kids as an exciting emerging act in hip-hop.
