Visit The World of Snotty Nose Rez Kids on “KALEIDOSCOPE”

Kieran Kohorst

In a union of Indigenous voices in rap, Canada’s emerging duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids recruit Seattle-born Travis Thompson for their latest single, “KALEIDOSCOPE.” On a spacious beat, each rapper preaches about overcoming obstacles and beating the odds, which all involved are familiar with. All talents involved in the song fit seamlessly with one another, a product of respect between SNRK and Thompson for their shared paths. “We’ve been seeing each other do the damn thang for years, we’ve always had respect for each other and always wanted to get one together,” Yung Trybez, one half of Snotty Nose Rez Kids, explains. “After linking up on a tour together last year, it was only natural we get in the stu. We set a date for Travis to come to Vancouver and he went back to Seattle with KALEIDOSCOPE. This is one of our favorite songs off this album and we feel it perfectly blends our styles.” The track arrives alongside a psychedelic visualizer, available to view here.

The soon-to-come album Yung Trybez alludes to is titled RED FUTURE, and is slated for release on September 13th. Since entering the music scene in 2016, Yung Trybez and co-member Young D have enjoyed a slow but steady ascent with each release, culminating in what will be their 4th LP release this fall. Snotty Nose Rez Kids are not withheld to music, however: it was announced last month that the duo will contribute heavily to a new show about their come up in Hip-hop coming out next year on CBC Gem + APTN. Set to follow the “almost true, real-life story of the dynamic duo chronicling their tireless hustle and chaotic journey to stardom,” it’s hard to imagine this being the last we hear of SNRK making big moves.
