About a month ago, TINO SZN, a sixteen-year-old rapper from North Carolina, released a song called ‘Machine’ in quarantine. Self-described as a “lone wolf”, takes a Based1 (Lil Skies) collaboration to talk about what the young ladies in his life want. If you ever wondered what’s up in the Charlotte area of the Carolinas, TINO SZN will let you know that it is similar to everything else going on in the world, and is average. Listen to the track below.
