REJJIE SNOW, Live In Rescue Rooms
- Monday 24th April 2017
- Supported by: TBC
Rejjie Snow today debuts the video for his acclaimed new track Pink Beetle and announces a UK tour for spring 2016, including his biggest show to date at The Forum, London on 28 April. Rejjie has spent time honing his craft, building a reputation and a loyal and ever growing fan base.
Now, signed to the already legendary label 300 Entertainment and with a debut album set to come early next year, Rejjie is an artist set for big things in 2017.
Pink Beetle is available to stream and download now; the song was produced by Rahki (Kendrick Lamar), who is currently executive producing Snow's debut album, with the video directed by Max Weiland (Somesuch).
Rejjie says of the video, "I wanted to translate the hyperreal imagery that one envisions when think-ing about going to the dentist. For some, going to the dentist is a treacherous nightmare in which pain & fear can strike over you. This video was born from a conversation I had with a man who hadn't gone to the dentist in 20 years. Because he was simply afraid. We dedicate this to you, my friend. Happy Halloween."

Following his sold out 1,500-capacity London Koko show this summer and his intimate launch event at new London venue Kamio earlier this month, Snow today announces a full UK tour for spring 2016, including a show at London's 2,300-capacity Forum. Dates are as follows; tickets on sale Thursday 3 November via rejjiesnow.com.
Snow’s first mixtape, Rejovich, has amassed over six million plays since dropping in 2013. In June 2015, Snow released debut single, All Around the World, produced by Cam O’bi (Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa), which was quickly followed by Blakkst Skn, produced by Kaytranada and featuring Rae Morris, in November.
Released in September this year, D.R.U.G.S was Snow’s first release after signing to Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment Company and was produced by Rahki - an award winning producer known for his work with Kendrick Lamar. Rahki is also currently executive produc-ing Snow’s debut album.
