Doors: 9pm
Snotty Nose Rez Kids are an indigenous hip-hop duo currently based out of Vancouver, BC. Proudly hailing from the Haisla Nation, SNRK creates music that pays homage to their upbringing on the Rez in Kitimaat Village while also touching upon larger themes related to Indigenous identity, politics and resistance in ways that engage a diverse audience. Their sound has been described as infectious, loud and reminiscent of early 90’s rap, with their hit track “Skoden” having the ability to turn even Justin Trudeau into a savage on the dance floor. They are truly grassroots hip hop, conscious lyricism at its finest, skillfully weaving the past into their lyrics and showing us to the way to the future.
Lex Leosis is an overwhelmingly cheerful and charismatic presence among any line of fellow emcees, but make no mistakes, she is anything but chipper on the microphone. Her roots in the competitive world of slam poetry and rap come out in her fierce and abrasive lyricism, and that competitive drive has already given her a notable spot in the Toronto undergound scene. The Toronto-native emcee and spoken word artist was part of the first Toronto Poetry Slam team, the first-ever Canadian team to compete at Brave New Voices in 2011, and since moved on to release three consecutive mixtapes, as well as a decorated career in rap competitions. She has taken both the online and local community by storm, playing 100s of shows, touring the west coast of the United States, and generating millions of views. Recently, Lex Leosis was featured in TeamBackPack’s International Women’s Day Cypher, hosted by 40z Heroes. This cypher received high praise from top Hip Hop blogs around the world, including Nosiey, The Fader, Hype Machine, and Boi-1da.
