Irish rapper Rejjie Snow returns to share new single ‘Cookie Chips’, featuring the legendary MF DOOM and Cam O’bi, and an accompanying video.
Directed by Machine Operated, the video is a fitting counterpart that perfectly encapsulates the single’s mutedly psychedelic essence, as the camera follows Rejjie through a forest donning bunny ears with a heap of balloons in tow.
“I love making music & creating moments,” says Rejjie. “It feels good to bring out this song in such an unaccustomed time & begin this new chapter in a solid & happy place”
Listen to ‘Cookie Chips (feat. MF DOOM and Cam O’bi)’ by Rejjie Snow on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
‘Cookie Chips’ was featured as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1 recently
and follows Rejjie’s 2018 debut album Dear Annie, which received rave 5* and 4* reviews
across the board, from the Guardian to NME, and was praised as “a dazzling record” (Crack
Magazine) of “blissful hip-hop” (The Times).
The album also took him on a tour across the world with sold-out stops at Baby’s All Right in New York, The Roxy in LA and London’s legendary Roundhouse, and a riotous homecoming at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre.
Rejjie Snow might seem like a rap artist but he doesn’t see it that way. It’s not just that he grew up the only black kid on Dublin’s Northside, where there’s no music scene to speak of. It’s that Rejjie is a scene unto himself.
The 27-year-old lives wherever his suitcase settles, wherever his songs send him, creating worlds and tangling words into beautifully complex knots that blur biography with fantasy over a shifting mass of rainy loops, technicolor keys, and trippy percussion. His influences are as disparate as George Michael and Charles Bukowski.
He almost had a career as a footballer but, instead, Rejjie has toured with Madonna, recorded with left-field dance genius KAYTRANADA and, after signing to 300 Entertainment in 2016, became labelmate to other outsiders like Young Thug and Fetty Wap.
