As a 16-year-old artist, Tino Szn has been doing quite well for himself. His most recent single titled “Vice” features $NOT, another one of the most promising rappers out right now. According to Tino, the song was originally “almost a throwaway” and something he didn’t ever plan to release. “$NOT ended up reaching out to me in July and I found him to be a perfect fit on the song, I sent it over to him as an open verse and I saw how good the chemistry was with the both of us on the track”. Not many artists get someone like $NOT reaching out to them in the first place, so this is already an impressive back story for this track.
Sonically, the track begins melodically with a dark undertone that feels slightly cryptic. Once Tino starts rapping, his flow is repetitive but distinct enough to keep you guessing. His lyrics are mature and his rhyme scheme is impressively structured. When you add the fact Tino is only 16 years old, this is clearly a bright future in the making. Music comes naturally for Tino and this is only the beginning.
