Haisla Nation hip-hop duo, SNOTTY NOSE REZ KIDS (SNRK), have recently announced their new EP, ‘Born Deadly’, set for release 3rd April. To offer some favour of the forthcoming EP, the guys have dropped a blazing a video for lead single, ‘Real Deadly’, which features the pair posing as scientists, experimenting with substances that are proven to be real deadly!
Discussing the lead single, Real Deadly, Quinton “Yung Trybez” Nyce and Darren “Young D” Metz state, “We like to refer to things that are dope as real deadly. We wrote this song about feeling strong and confident in who we are as people and artists and want that to transfer to the listener. Much in the way that our track, Boujee Natives, spoke to the richness of indigenous fashion, style, culture, and identity, we want ‘Real Deadly’ to be a positive affirming song. A lot of the music we wrote for this EP was inspired by the energy we feel at our shows. The tracks are ‘turn up’ tracks and we intended for fans to not only hear them on record, but at our live shows too.”
Hailing from Kitimat, BC, SNRK formed in 2016 and released back-to-back albums in 2017 – their self-titled debut in January, and ‘The Average Savage’ in September. The latter earned the duo Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards, landed them on the 2018 Polaris Music Prize Short List which earned them a 2019 JUNO Award nomination for Best Indigenous Music Album. The group toured heavily in Canada with select appearances in the U.S. and Australia. They quickly gained notoriety for their energetic, inspiring and thought-provoking shows.
There’ll be no rest for these snotty nose kids as they are set to perform at SXSW in Austin, TX before heading out on their first ever U.S. headlining tour, kicking off April 12 in Portland, OR and wrapping up on June 13 in Detroit, MI. Visit their website for dates.
