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. The track, which was recorded at London's Red Bull Studios, is both claustrophobic and anthemic, playing like an anxious version of a booming club song. Listen to Kobi Onyame and Show N Prove's "Yo Yo Tinz" below and check out a short behind-the-scenes video. For more from Kobi Onyame, revisit his slow-burning heartache video for "Call Out My Name" from last year.
