Scarborough's Youngest Tamil Rapper Vinnin, has been spending a lot of his time perfecting his craft and his vision as an artist. While networking over the pandemic he found Yanchan, a popular Scarborough producer and singer and started to write a song with the help of former Roddy Ricch producer, PDUBTheProducer. Their new track 'See Me Now' showcases Vinnin and Yanchan’s hometown and represents motivational, uplifting and heartwarming scenes.
"This record truly means a lot to me as it took two years to perfect it. I wrote this song back when I was 16 (currently being 18) about friends, high school and other experiences that I was currently going through. Collaborating with one of the greatest artists from my own race and from Scarborough is an honour. It’s also such an honour working with PDUBTheProducer, thanks to Yanchan. I grew up listening to PDUB’s beats, one of my favourites 'Baby Boy' by Roddy Ricch. I feel like I got a whole community behind me and I know this legacy for everyone."
Directed by JDFM the track sits at #26 for Vevo’s Teen Hip-Hop and R&B and reaches streams and views counting till today. This isn’t the first time Vinnin has reached mainstream success; his first single was back in December 2020, when he released "Top Of The Game," which was featured on the NBA2K21 Next-Gen Soundtrack and in-game on all consoles. At present “See Me Now” is shifting the stakes with its inspiring premise and is available now on all major streaming platforms.
