SNOTTY NOSE REZ KIDS PAY HOMAGE TO THE PLACE THEY CALL HOME



Snotty Nose Rez Kids are a Canadian First Nations hip-hop collective composed of Haisla rappers Darren "Young D" Metz and Quinton "Yung Trybez" Nyce.

Their last record The Average Savage grabbed nation-wide attention - earning them on the Polaris Music Prize shortlist in 2018. An upcoming full-length album Trapline is set for release on May 10th.

A new track dropped titled “Creator Made An Animal”, that the duo say is a creative outlet for paying homage to the place that they call home:

 "'Creator Made An Animal'” carries an aggressive and assertive energy that imitates the way society portrays Indigenous people and People of Colour across Turtle Island. Our ancestors were stereotyped as savages, and we are often regarded as the pissed-off generation who haven’t gotten over what colonization has done to our lands and to our people. Through stylish delivery, we proclaim ourselves as the Father 7th Generation and let the world know that we aren’t changing for anyone. The future is ours! As human beings, we are powerful. It’s integral that we respect the knowledge that was passed down from our ancestors. Many of us also carry their pain, but every single one of us carry their power. Embrace that power, stay true to that power and to yourself!"
