You might think you've seen it all when it comes to rap videos depicting a life of high-end luxury, but you've never seen a take on "boujee" quite like the Snotty Nose Rez Kids latest offering. 

"When you think of boujee, you think of an elite class of people with an appetite for luxury and high end materials. When we say 'Boujee Natives' we are letting you know our wealth lies in our culture, traditions, and everything Mother Earth provides for us," the Vancouver-based duo says of the track behind their just-released music video. "'Boujee Natives' stems from our belief that everyone is an artist in one way shape or form and that we were all created to create but it’s up to us as individuals to find out what that is for ourselves. We wanted to showcase all the badass First Nations artists that have welcomed us into their worlds as we were coming into ourselves and developing our artistry into what it is today. We are the creators, we are inspired natives, not native inspired, and we like to rock our shit, we dem 'Boujee Natives.'"


Darren “Young D” Metz and Quinton “Yung Trybez” Nyce are both from the Haisla Nation and have been making waves in the music world here on Turtle Island over the past few years: Their The Average Savage album was shortlisted for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize and also for the Indigenous Music Album of the Year at this year's Juno Awards.
