“…one of the best groups rapping in Canada…” – Exclaim!

“…a sprawling 18 track address to all those who would try to classify the group in anything but its own genre…it’s safe to say that this is not your average rap record. – Vancouver Sun

Toronto, ON – May 10, 2019 – Trapline – the new full-length album from Haisla Nation rap duo, Snotty Nose Rez Kids – is out today. The record brings about a refreshing energy and new sound for the group, while continuing to display their blend of trap beats and woven lyricism that challenge Indigenous stereotypes, and assert their place in the hip-hop landscape. With the album, the group has dropped a brand new music video for the track, Boujee Natives, which premiered today via Complex. Have a look here and listen to Trapline here.

“When you think of boujee, you think of an elite class of people with an appetite for luxury and high-end materials,” comments SNRK. “When we say ‘Boujee Natives’ we are letting you know our wealth lies in our culture, traditions, and everything Mother Earth provides for us. Boujee Natives stems from our belief that everyone is an artist in one way shape or form and that we were all created to create but it’s up to us as individuals to find out what that is for ourselves. We wanted to showcase all the badass First Nations artists that have welcomed us into their worlds as we were coming into ourselves and developing our artistry into what it is today. We are the creators, we are inspired natives, not native inspired, and we like to rock our shit, we dem Boujee Natives.

The duo is currently on tour with debut performances in Europe, and has announced the second leg of their Traplines tour, including festival appearances across Canada through the summer. Full details can be found below and tickets are available here.

Snotty Nose Rez Kids are the combined talents of Yung Trybez and Young D, hailing from the Haisla Nation, ‘The People of the Snow.” Their music is best described as thought-provoking club bangers, and their live shows prove it – audiences will dance and sweat, but they’ll leave with new knowledge.

Formed by Trybez and D in 2016, Snotty Nose Rez Kids was born out of a life-long friendship between the two emcees, growing up together, and deciding on music as their outlet for expression. SNRK dropped two albums in 2017: their debut self-titled LP, and The Average Savage, just nine months later. Snotty Nose Rez Kids set the stage for establishing the duo as hard-hitting lyricists tackling rich subject matter. Garnering fans from all over, SNRK began touring and proving they were not only talented musicians, but true entertainers, with their energy-filled performances creating a quick demand for them in B.C.

Their follow-up, The Average Savage, took them to new lengths. In 2018, they toured Canada, the U.S. and Australia in support of the album, while their single, Savages, spent over 20 weeks on the Indigenous Music Countdown. The album landed them a nomination for Best Hip Hop Album at the Indigenous Music Awards, a win for Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards, a place on the Short List for the Polaris Music Prize, and a JUNO nomination for Indigenous Music Album of the Year.
