Snotty Nose Rez Kids: Real Deadly

By Kerry Doole

Snotty Nose Rez Kids - Real Deadly (Indie): The Haisla Nation hip-hop duo has announced a new EP, Born Deadly, is set for release April 3, preceded by this first single.

The track is a bold declaration of self-confidence, featuring inventive beats and cocky lyrics - "Life’s a bitch, mines destiny, F##k with me I won’t miss a beat Been working hard for this legacy Real deadly."

Discussing the track, Quinton “Yung Trybez” Nyce and Darren “Young D” Metz state in a press release, "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.”


Regarding the video, they add, "It was great working with producer Ben Knechtel (Carly Rae Jepsen, Scott Helman) and his team again for the video. Director Travis Didluk really came through and we cultivated a nice little storyline where both of us are basement-dwelling scientists developing a real-deadly substance that infects us with power and confidence. You’ll see by the end that we snap out of it and it’s all for fun, and we wanted to show people that we don’t take ourselves too seriously."

In 2019 SNRK released a third album, Trapline, garnering major critical praise. The duo embarked on a 60+ show tour of Canada, U.S., Mexico, UK and Australia, and won Breakout Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards that year. The album was once again shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, marking SNRK as one of only three artists to ever make the Short List in back-to-back years. 


After dates at SXSW, SNRK plays its first headlining US tour,  April 12 to June 13. Tickets available here
