Rapper In The Spotlight: NSW Yoon

In this edition of Rapper in the Spotlight, we’re turning our attention to a young talent who, despite debuting just a few years ago, has already built a robust discography. Let’s explore the journey of NSW yoon.

Lee Seung-yoon (aka. NSW yoon) made his independent debut in 2021 with the single album ‘PERIOD,’ which featured two compelling singles. Shortly after, he dropped the single ‘EIEIO,’ marking the beginning of a promising career.

From the outset, NSW yoon has embraced a distinctive Drill Hip-Hop style characterized by sharp beat arrangements, rapid rhythms, and direct, raw lyrics.

Show Me The Money 11

In 2022, NSW yoon kicked off the year with the release of his first EP, ‘BALLON D’OR,’ swiftly followed by the single ‘For The Culture’ featuring Owen and the album ‘Beauty Of The Pain.’
