By most metrics, Rejjie Snow appears to be a rap artist and that's technically true. But he doesn't see it that way, and in any case the simplicity of the label (or any label, really) obscures what makes him different, which is pretty much everything. "I thought I'd be blacklisted from hip-hop for being Irish," he says, but that's only the most obvious thing setting him apart. 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.
