Rejjie Snow Releases New Track “Pink Beetle”
Rejjie Snow has returned with a new single, one month after dropping his "D.R.U.G.S." track. The Irish rapper's latest creation, "Pink Beetle," sees him he taking other MCs to task. Snow announces his intent to vanquish his competition, who he believes are nothing but actors.
"All these niggas rappers/Playing rappers, greatest actors/Me, I kept it humble/Me, I did it, this my greatest chapter/Written here where bodies lay/Mummified and on display/Zulu with the shackles/Freeing weapons be the up and keep," Snow raps.
Rejjie Snow is determined to bring a new style to the forefront. He emphasized this desire in an interview with XXL.
“[I want] to bring a new sound and show all these kids out here with dreams that you can really do what you wanna do,” Snow told XXL. “I also wanna put my tiny island on the map and scrap this bullshit stereotype that exists and just generally inspire and leave a legacy.”
The Dublin City native has the opportunity to stand out due to some unique influences, which include English poet Richard Aldington.
“I was introduced to the work of Richard Aldington, who is a fantastic poet, by my grandad when I was like 10, and that bared a massive influence on me,” Snow said. “I stumbled across some of the greats like Nas as I got a tad bit older. The fact that I enjoyed albums such as Illmatic and not the dull mainstream filth that’s shoved down your mouth is something I feel is cool when I look back on my youth.”
Rejjie Snow has not managed to release his debut album, but hopefully his new singles are sign that will be changing.
