Music and graffiti: the two most important things in Alexander Anyaegbunam aka Rejjie Snow’s life. Being a successful producer and MC, Rejjie is well known, in- and outside of the Hip Hop and Rap scene. After a shortlived New York intermezzo, Snow has since returned to Dublin, his hometown, to collaborate with a range of designers and animation artists to bring his creative visions to life. These visions have already proven profitable for the mid-twen, as his previous stints include opening for Kendrick Lamar and working together with Johnny Depp-offspring Lily-Rose. At the moment, Rejjie keeps busy with Joey Bada$$ on the finishing touches of his mixtape and preparing for the release of his debut album later this year. Shortly before leaving to venture out on tour through Europe, we arranged a photoshoot with Rejjie Snow in New York City.
