Snotty Nose Rez Kids is a Canadian hip-hop duo of Haisla (indigenous) descent. Rappers Yung Trybez and Young D hail from Kitimat, British Columbia. Formed in 2016, SNRK released their first self-titled album in January 2017, and continued to establish with the release of their second full-length, The Average Savage, in September 2017. The Average Savage earned SNRK numerous accolades, including Best Hip-Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards, landing them on 2018’s Polaris Music Prize Short List, and a 2019 JUNO nomination for best Indigenous Music Album. The duo toured heavily in Canada and made appearances in New York City, Seattle and Darwin, Australia, where they quickly gained notoriety for their energetic, inspiring and thought-provoking performances.

SNRK released their third album, TRAPLINE, in May 2019. It garnered stellar reviews from Exclaim!, Bandcamp, Hip-Hop Canada, NOW Magazine, The Georgia Straight, Beatroute, and CBC Music, along with support from Complex, The Hype Magazine, Noisey, and The FADER. The duo embarked on a 60+ show tour of Canada, U.S., Mexico, U.K. and Australia that generated a major groundswell of support. SNRK went on to win Breakout Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards. TRAPLINE was shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, making SNRK one of only three artists to ever be shortlisted in back-to-back years. TRAPLINE ended 2019 on numerous “best albums of the year” lists. Exclaim! honored TRAPLINE by including it in their articles for 50 Best Albums of the 2010s and Top 10 Hip-Hop Albums of the Year, and they also included “Boujee Native” in their countdown of the Top 50 Songs of the 2010s. SNRK is kicking off their 2020 schedule with their first-ever headlining U.S. tour. Trybez and D are currently hard at work on new music.
