Snotty Nose Rez Kids
Haisla Nation / Vancouver, BC
“Our culture is strong and continues to shape us into who we are today. We are storytellers, dancers, singers and artists. We are survivors. Our ancestors live through us and as individuals, we have a platform to communicate this with our community. With whatever lens you see us through, we will always be the snot nosed kids from the rez and that’s what makes us beautiful.”
-Snotty Nose Rez Kids
Snotty Nose Rez Kids (SNRK) are a 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 a diverse audience. From the highs to the lows, Snotty Nose Rez Kids songs are full of energy, humour, heartbreak, and Indigenous resiliency.
SNRK have taken the Canadian hip-hop scene by storm. In 2017, they released two albums including The Average Savage, which was nominated for best hip-hop album at the 2018 Indigenous Music Awards, and most recently included on the coveted Polaris Prize Long List.
Snotty Nose Rez Kids music has been described as politically charged, uplifting, infectious, and reminiscent of early 90’s rap – an era of music that is unforgettable. They’ve taken the hip-hop scene by storm at a rapid-fire rate, drawing immense praise and now, finding a home with RPM Records – a global new music platform for Indigenous music from across Turtle Island and around the world.
