Relly Snow - Black Xmas

  • Artist: Relly Snow
  • Track: Black Xmas
  • Producer: Marcus King
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

On a holiday classic penned by Irving Berlin, Bing Crosby pined for “a white Christmas, just like to the ones [he] used to know.” Suffice it to say, Relly Snow's typical Yuletide experience is a little different than the late crooner's. On promo cut Black Xmas, making its world premiere on our front page, the 21-year-old NYC buzzmaker shows us what the holidays look like 'round his way. Marcus King's tension-fraught string, guitar and keyboard loops set the mood as Snow vividly describes his hustle and his urban milieu, making clear that the only thing on his wish list this year is gold. Like what you're hearing? Then stay tuned; this record is just a loosie, but we'll keep you posted as we learn more about Relly's plans, including the release of a new EP, for 2015.
