Listen: Rejjie Snow Announces Mixtape, Streams ‘Black Pancakes’

Dublin hip-hop newcomer goes grizzly for a take on his ‘Dear Annie’ mixtape.

It might sound like an unconventional recipe on paper, but turns out ‘Black Pancakes’ are pretty delicious, especially if they’re cooked up in Irish rapper Rejjie Snow’s kitchen.

Rejjie’s set to release a new mixtape ‘Dear Annie’ in early 2014 - according to Nialler 9 - and Alex Butler’s ‘Black Pancakes’ is a cursory reminder of his unhinged talent. It might run into a couple of dead ends here and there, but eventually this returning track comes off as a superb tour de force, blending old-school soul samples and harsh, gritty lyricisms.
