'Irish hiphop' isn't a phrase we hear often enough. But Rejjie Snow is back with a new track and plenty more in his ammo.
Snow released his first mixtape, Rejovich, in mid 2013 and it immediately topped the iTunes Hip-Hop chart, ahead of releases from huge names like Kanye West and J Cole. The Dublin rapper's new track ‘D.R.U.G.S’ combines slick beats and thickly layered guitar to make a confident yet laid back song.
His debut album is to be produced by Grammy Award winner Rahki and is set for a 2017 release date. Snow’s first full length could help him become one step closer to achieving his goal of putting Ireland on the hip-hop map, scrapping any idea that hip hop can only excel when made in more saturated city scenes.
