Arctic Superstar. The indigenous rapper of the snows

100 words for snow, no words for yo. 

The indigenous, Samí rapper Nils Rune Utsi - aka SlinCraze - lives with his mother in Máze, a nearly abandoned town in the Arctic Highlands of Norway. 

His dream is to make a living from his music and maybe even become world famous. The only problem is that less than 20.000 people speak his endangered language.
