  1. Snook

    Snook is a Swedish rap group from Stockholm. The group consists of Oskar "Kihlen" Linnros and Daniel "Danne" Adams-Ray. The group often makes fun of traditional rap and tries to reinvent it. They have released two full-length albums and several singles. In the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards in Copenhagen, they won the award for Best Swedish Act. Linnros and Adams-Ray met in High School. They formed Snook in 2000, a Swedish slang word for "nose". The group's first single 1990 nånting, featuring Afasi & Filthy, became a big hit in Sweden. They were critically acclaimed because of their a different sound as compared to the general Swedish hip-hop. Their debut album Vi vet inte vart vi ska, men vi ska komma dit was released in May 2004, and was one of the most praised records in Sweden that year. Snook received a P3 Guld award for their hit "Mister Cool". The group Snook is currently not active. Linnros has made a solo album called Vilja Bli; a move away from hip-hop, the album consists of ten soul-pop songs. It was released on 9 June 2010. Six months later, Adams-Ray released an album called Svart, Vitt och allt därimellan.
