Snotty Nose Rez Kids Release New Fight Song ‘Skoden’

Just what I've been wanting in hip hop music these days! Snotty Nose Rez Kids mixes in a little bit of humor with some important cultural issues like land rights, rez life, oppression, and healing.

The duo consists of MC Yung Trybez (aka Zazaxsmalis) and Young D (aka Darren Metz) both from the Haisla First Nation.


In this track from their new album, “Skoden” is the fight song you didn't know you needed.

“Following in the steps of our favorite Indian Country catch phrase, ‘Skoden’ is a one-word phrase that means ‘let’s fight’,” says Trybez, “and in the same light we use this to motivate our people to fight for the land. The tone is high energy and angry, born from warrior’s mentality to protect our land and rights.”

In case you want to hear the whole album, check them out on Soundcloud:
