Daniel David John Adams-Ray (born August 18, 1983, in Nairobi, Kenya) is a Swedish rapper, singer and fashion designer. Daniel Adams-Ray was born in Kenya to an Indonesian mother and a father of Swedish/Scottish heritage. His mother was a school administrator and his father a medical surgeon. In 1996 the family left Africa for Europe and lived in Netherlands for a year before settling in Sweden. (In Holland he played football with a very young Arjen Robben). The family settled in the Stockholm’s Lidingö Municipality, a part of the city associated with the upper class. Daniel Adams-Ray says he felt very much like an outsider and says he was bullied and called racist slurs. After switching high schools he found a school that fitted him better and met Oskar Linnros. The two started the alternative hip hop group Snook.
