On Our Radar: Snotty Nose Rez Kids head back to the lab in the video for "Real Deadly"

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      "Ain't no gangsta shit, just warrior shit" is only one of many instantly memorable lines from "Real Deadly", the latest single from the B.C.-based hip-hop duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids. The song is a rapid-fire barrage of cultural references, from classic hip-hop (2Pac, De la Soul, OutKast) to Cartoon Network shows only '90s kids will remember (Ed, Edd n Eddy ). Real Deadly is the title track from Snotty Nose Rez Kids' forthcoming EP, due out on April 3.

      According to Quinton “Yung Trybez” Nyce and Darren “Young D” Metz:

      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.

      Snotty Nose Rez Kids kick off a U.S. tour in  Portland on April 12. For the full list of tour dates, visit the group's website.
