The news lands alongside a new video shot at the pyramids for ‘Relax’.
Today, Rejjie Snow has revealed his second album Baw Baw Black Sheep is set to drop on July 9. The Dublin rapper also shared a new video for ‘Relax’ featuring Cam O’bi and grouptherapy which sees the Irish rapper spit some laid back bars at the pyramids in the lo-fi visuals.
It follows the release of videos for ‘Mirrors’ featuring Snoh Alaegrah and ‘Cookie Chips’ featuring the late MF DOOM.
It marks the first project since Snow’s 2018 debut album Dear Annie and speaking on the album Rejjie said, “I approached [the album] light heartedly from the point of view of making a short film through music.”
“I always loved Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. I watch it all the time. I thought of Baw Baw Black Sheep like a soundtrack to it. I put the movie on with my album, and they synced up perfectly. I tried to tap into all of these feelings. The music is really colourful, and the lyrics are often happy, because that was my state of mind.”
