Rising Louisiana rapper YNP Maine releases his bombastic new single “Aventador” today. Buzzing with wild energy and whip-smart lyricism, the QUANTE-produced track is emblematic of the teenage hip-hop star’s boundless potential and effortless showmanship. Alongside the track comes its accompanying music video showcasing the breakout star tearing it up in the studio with his crew.

“All through the club, I wore my gun," YNP spits over in-your-face beats and melodic loops. "Security know, no checkin’ nothing.” The newcomer underlines his confidence and self-belief late in the song: “Always knew I had it in me way before they noticed it, before they noticed it.” Breakneck intensity and raw ambition is present in every syllable, making "Aventador" another winning entry in his burgeoning discography.

In the HV3 Visuals directed music video, YNP takes a call before heading to the lab. When he arrives, the track explodes as the young performer unleashes his skills, delivering the track with poise and gusto, practically shaking the building when “Aventador” arrives at the addictive chorus. The visualizer perfectly depicts what riding with the young rapstar would look like.

The track follows closely after “Aw Yeah,” a collaboration with fellow breakout star Ndotspinalot, as well as “Voices,” which was included on French Montana and DJ Drama’s Coke Boys 6: Money Heist Edition. That co-sign followed The Start, YNP’s breakout record from last year, which highlighted his unique spin on the sound that has dominated Southern hip-hop throughout the last decade.

Now, with “Aventador,” YNP Maine unleashes a new calling card that heralds his arrival as one of rap's most exciting new artists.

Harsh, matter-of-fact, and unflinching, YNP Maine serves up steely-eyed soundtracks for the trenches. Since witnessing the death of his older brother, the Baton Rouge rapper has provided terse street bars that pulsate with decisiveness and simmering menace, byproducts of life in a war zone. Those side effects surface on “Aw Yeah,” an Ndotspinalot-assisted rider’s anthem. Grim, yet juxtaposed with dreams of a rap come-up, the track evokes survival and a sense of wounded optimism. It’s the inflection point of a significant level-up for YNP Maine. Years before he had fans or even goals of rap stardom, YNP was just trying to survive the travails of his home city. While his brother was an aspiring rapper, YNP was more interested in basketball. That changed after his brother was murdered. After struggling for a year following his brother’s death, YNP began taking music more seriously. For a 16-year-old without many emotional outlets, recording sessions became their own kind of therapy. At school, other students would approach him rapping the lyrics to his early song “Trippin,” and it soon became a soundtrack for the locker room. By 2023, his rap skills had earned him the attention of French Montana and he signed to Coke Boys Records / Priority Records. While YNP can be ruthless in his songs, he prides himself on his versatility, making tracks for the block and the club. Regardless of the themes, his music is always threaded with honesty. “My raps come from the heart,” he says.
