Kobi Onyame And Show N Prove Share 'Yo Yo Tinz'

Ghanaian/UK rapper Kobi Onyame shares "Yo Yo Tinz," the new single off his as-yet-untitled album due later in 2015.

Ghana-born, Glasgow-based rapper Kobi Onyame delivers a bumping dance rap tune with "Yo Yo Tinz," the new single off his as-yet-untitled album due later this year. Crafted by Edinburgh hip-hop producer Show N Prove, the tingly tune features Onyame delivering frenetic rhymes over heavy drums, fuzzy bass lines, and speeding electronics.

For more from Kobi Onyame, revisit his slow-burning heartache video for "Call Out My Name" from last year.
