Emcee/producer Yinka Diz presents ‘Night In Dubai’, his new single produced by Joe Prime. Born in Chicago to a mother from the infamous Cabrini Green projects and a Nigerian immigrant father, Yinka spent the early years of his childhood living in and around the city before moving to the Inland Empire, just outside of Los Angeles.
A constant world traveler and student of culture, Yinka effectively canvasses his experiences in what he refers to as a ‘street-cosmopolitan’ sound. His music propels the listener into his cosmopolitan frame of mind, full of explosive wordplay and nuanced messages.
Yinka recently dropped a video for ‘Hear Me, Tho’ (watch). His 2011 mixtape ‘New Art, New Money’ featured Glasses Malone, Marky (watch the ‘Wind In My Caesar’ video), Nike Nando, Annimeans and producer/rapper Dae One and singer Kree (watch the ‘Done It All’ video) as well as production from !llmind (watch the ‘Overnight Scenario’ video). He also released the mixtape The Radiant Child in 2013 (listen).
“This is Passport Music,” Yinka says of the new single. “Witness the world through it, #ThatLife“.
Yinka currently resides in Washington, D.C.
