Charlotte emcee, Tino Szn, is looking to carry his momentum from 2020 into the new year. Coming off of a busy year, Tino is back with his latest single “Vice”, which boasts a feature with one of the most talked-about new rappers: $NOT. The collaboration cements Tino’s raw talent, as $NOT actually reached out to Tino after an Instagram live.
“Vice” is a spaced-out trap anthem. The production is simple, yet effective, with an echo-y guitar riff that rings throughout. The drums come in perfectly to keep the track bouncy. $NOT and Tino’s chemistry is great on the track. Throughout “Vice”, both rappers get their time to flex, boss up on their haters, and talk their talk in general. It’s hard to say who got off the better verse, which is the mark of a great track.
“Vice” is off to a hot start, reeling in 15,000 first day streams just on Spotify. With a $NOT feature under his belt, Tino’s 2021 is off to a hot start. His flows are fresh and beat selection is great. With no signs of slowing down, it’ll be exciting to see what else 2021 has in store for the 16-year-old from Charlotte.
