Ireland’s very own Rejjie Snow has released his second album titled Baw Baw Black Sheep.
Connecting with Cam O’bi as Executive Producer and frequent collaborator Dee Lilly, Rejjie creates an uplifting yet chilled body of work on this new 14-track project, reflecting his approach when making the album.
The vibrant tone of the tape was set last year when Rejjie released “Cookie Chips”, followed by “Mirrors” and “Disco Pantz” which all feature on the tape. Guest features come from the likes of Cam O’bi, Tinashe, grouptherapy, Snoh Aalegra, the late, great MF Doom and more.
“I approached [the album] lightheartedly from the point of view of making a short film through music,” Rejjie explains. “I always loved Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. I watch it all the time. I thought of Baw Baw Black Sheep like a soundtrack to it. I put the movie on with my album, and they synced up perfectly. I tried to tap into all of these feelings. The music is really colourful, and the lyrics are often happy, because that was my state of mind.”
