From Washington D.C., songwriter, rapper, and recording artist YNS pays homage to 90s underground hip-hop with his recent single, "DEMON EYEZ."
Born of Salvadorian immigrants, YNS ensures that his culture and roots shine through each of his tracks. Through influences like Eminem, 50 Cent, Bone Thugs, Three 6 Mafia, and more, YNS strives to reflect that underground tenacity and authenticity from his inspirations into his versatile music.
Listeners can catch YNS's 90s and 00s influences through his latest single, "DEMON EYEZ." Produced by Leilo Beats, the track offers this darkness and deepness that's hard to come by in modern hip-hop, and the song's production perfectly enhances YNS's haunting and confident performance. The Washington-based rapper keeps us hooked with his diabolical and sinister bars about the flames beneath our feet and intertwining oneself with the underworld.
Hitting play on the new track, "DEMON EYEZ," the song opens with haunting keyboard melodies and downtempo, poised drum breaks alongside YNS's intimidating and whispery vocal appearance. As he begins to rap his composed and ominous bars, the song transports into this hellish and menacing place through his words of creating a sacrificial connection with the devil himself.
Leilo Beats' production totally enhances the mysterious and spooky vibe with his eerie background synths that linger through our speakers alongside the dark keyboard melodies and heavy drum breaks. YNS gradually guides us to the outro while haunting us with the song's demonic and unsettling theme until the very last beat.
We loved the composure and authority YNS brought to his latest single, "DEMON EYEZ." Find the hot new single on all digital streaming platforms.
