Haisla Hip-Hop Duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids Sign to RPM Records, Drop New Single “The Warriors”

SNRK are the latest Indigenous artists to join the RPM Records family.

After premiering a new video for their anti-pipeline protest anthem “The Warriors” last week, RPM is thrilled to announce that acclaimed hip-hop duo the Snotty Nose Rez Kids have joined the RPM Records roster.

Proudly hailing from the Haisla Nation, SNRK creates music that pays homage to their upbringing on the Rez in Kitimaat Village in northern British Columbia, while also touching upon larger themes related to Indigenous identity, politics and resistance.

SNRK have taken the hip-hop scene by storm. Their music is politically charged and emotionally driven while also being upbeat, energetic and uplifting and they released two full-length albums in 2017: their debut self-titled album in January and their second album, The Average Savage, in September.

Known for their undeniably catchy flows, lyricism, humour, and crowd-rocking live shows, SNRK are rising stars in the world of Indigenous hip-hop and will release their anticipated third album, Rez Bangers & Koolapops, this fall on RPM Records.

Their latest single, “The Warriors”, is now available on all platforms—stream and buy it here.

SNOTTY NOSE REZ KIDS

Snotty Nose Rez Kids (SNRK) are an Indigenous hip hop duo currently based out of Vancouver, BC. Proudly hailing from the Haisla Nation, SNRK creates music that pays homage to their upbringing on the Rez in Kitimaat Village while also touching upon larger themes related to Indigenous identity, politics and resistance in ways that engage diverse communities and audiences.

They performed more than 44 shows in 2017, 24 as headliners and 16 for community and youth initiatives including performances at the Drum is Calling, Blessed Coast and Koksilah music festivals.

So far in 2018, they have already performed at a sold out A Tribe Called Red show and opened for E-40 at festivals like “420 Vancouver” while looking forward to Indigenous Day Live in Winnipeg, Skookum Festival, and their upcoming international debut later this summer.

SNRK is in partnership with Revolutions Per Minute, the leading Indigenous music label in Canada, which has allowed them to have debut shows in cities such as Toronto and Montreal. In addition to their performances, SNRK pride themselves as being community advocates, consistently working with Indigenous youth and Indigenous visual artists to give life to their work beyond the music they make. Their sound has been described as infectious, loud and reminiscent of early 90’s rap, with their hit track “Skoden” having the ability to turn even Justin Trudeau into a savage on the dance floor. They are truly grassroots hip hop, conscious lyricism at its finest, skillfully weaving the past into their lyrics and showing us to the way to the future. They are currently working on an EP with Indigenous hip hop heavyweight Drezus, a collaborative project with the popular Northwest Coast duo, and RPM artists, Mob Bounce, as well as their third album—to be released this fall on RPM Records.

SNRK are ready to craft music that is sure to get everyone dancing with the resistance.
