Wynne is a 20-year-old rapper from Portland Oregon. Premiering today on The FADER is her newest track, “Don’t Touch,” on which she raps about keeping haters at bay over a dark and stuttering beat. “‘Don’t Touch’ lives in a lot of different worlds for me, but it’s mainly residing as a warning,” she says of the song. “I’m confronting my identity as hip-hop’s poison apple. It’s sort of my offer to quarantine myself.” It’s also about her “loneliness that comes with that isolation, and how that is sculpting my journey.” Listen to the song below.
