On January 9 Dublin based rapper Rejjie Snow (formally known as Lecs Luther) dropped the first single off his highly awaited debut LP Rejovich. The track Lost In Empathy plays on the strange persecution of albinos. The 19 year old up and comer has already supported MF DOOM in Dublin, and more recently did a hometown show opening up for man of the moment Kendrick Lamar. Despite being based in the small market of Dublin, Ireland Snow has received a large amount of attention on the internet with his song Harlem reaching over a hundred thousand views on YouTube proving ‘it ain’t where you’re from it’s where you’re at’
The young rapper has quite an underground vibe to his music with chilled out beats and flow so slick it is like water off a seals back. In fact his so far short career has a little bit of a MF DOOM feel about it (minus the mask). In late 2012 Snow made the announcement to the world that he was in fact the anonymous beat maker and rapper Captain Murphy, only to announce later that day that it was all a media stunt and that he was not actually the mystical man behind the deep voice (Turns out it’s in fact Flying Lotus) For this stunt he received a large amount of news attention, not all of it being positive.
Part of a new generation of rappers Rejjie Snow appears to be set for a long and fruitful career and is most definitely one to keep an eye on this year.
