Formed by Trybez and D in 2016, SNRK was born out of a life-long friendship between two emcees, growing up together, and deciding on music as their outlet for expression. SNRK dropped two albums in 2017, their debut self-titled LP and The Average Savage nine months later. They set the stage for establishing the duo as hard-hitting lyricists tackling rich subject matter. Garnering fans from all over, SNRK began touring and proving they were not only talented musicians, but that they were true entertainers. The energy-filled performances created a quick demand for them in B.C. Their follow-up, The Average Savage, took them to new lengths. In 2018, they toured Canada, US and Australia in support of the album. Their single, Savages, spent 20 weeks on the Indigenous Music Countdown. The album landed them a nomination for Best Hip Hop Album at the Indigenous Music Awards, a win for Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards, the shortlist for the Polaris Music Prize, and a Juno nomination for Best Indigenous Music Album of the Year.
