The Florida phenom SNOT has just dropped his latest single “Red,” where his reflections on his reality are both sobering and dizzying.
Laid over ToryOnTheBeat production, “Red” finds SNOT speaking plainly, rapping on the melodic hook, “Where I put my med? I can’t feel my heart, I’m dead/Soul up in the sky, see my body on a bed.”
This is something SNOT does well, delivering messages that might be deeper than how he presents them on the surface. With a hoodie always obscuring his face like MF Doom’s mask, even the cover art features the artist’s patented wardrobe.
SNOT is also dropping a line of merch with Rose in Good Faith to coincide with the release of the single.
When talking with Complex, the 23-year-old rapper explained where he’s most comfortable making music and how that has changed with fame. “Back in the day, I was really comfortable recording in my room, in my home,” he said. “I’d get my little laptop and a little USB mic or something, and just record. But now it’s like, if I ain’t got no engineer, I can’t really do shit, for real. But I like recording in the studio, just chilling, with a whole bunch of friends with me.”
