Following on from his debut EP 'Rookie' that released late September last year, Washington is back yet again with his new drop 'YUNGIN'. This track sets the bar for what is sure to be a busy year ahead for him.
We were put onto his music through Feux's high paced feature verse on the highly impactful riddim 'PRAY 4 ME'. We really loved this track and were drawn in by the crazy flow/accent combination being matched up with some serious lyricism.
The track tells the tale of Washington's short time living in Paisley, Scotland since moving from Zimbabwe a few years back. Bringing a thumping new sound to the culture, he has effortlessly adapted to a new lifestyle despite the turbulent problems it can bring.
Produced by Gillieson, the trippy beat is captivating with outer-worldly synths matched up to skippy trap-style drums. Washington really sits into a nice sound here, delivering a slick melody-driven hook amongst his usual intense wordplay.
We were blessed with visuals to accompany the track the night before release, the link for the music video can be found below so be sure to check that out too!
'Yungin' is produced by Paisley born and raised producer 'Gillieson' and was mixed and mastered by North London artist/producer 'J.P Rose', who we have seen collaborate with Washington numerous times.
We wonder what we could hear from this versatile and talented artist next in 2021 but until then be sure to stream 'YUNGIN' on your preferred streaming platform and run up the visuals on Washington's YouTube channel, the links can be found below:
