Not so long ago, a rapper from Dublin, Ireland would’ve been a novelty gimmick. But the worldwide expansion of the hip-hop genre, and growing diversity of Ireland (at least in major cities like Dublin) means that an Irish rapper can stand on its own. Dear Annie is hip-hop at its most smooth, Snow’s voices over jazzy samples. At 20 tracks, this album feels bloated to me, but Rejjie Snow’s talent and potential stands out in it’s strongest parts.
