Kenny Mason (DIY)
4/28/20

WHAT IT IS: Carrying Atlanta’s ever-changing sound, 25-year-old Kenny Mason made an exceptional introduction to the music scene with the release of his aptly titled single, “Hit,” exhibiting his technical rap skills in an unorthodox song structure. Mason’s unapologetic approach in his self-released debut album, Angelic Hoodrat, serves as an honest and reflective glimpse into the mind of a dynamic artist who’s determined to leave his mark on hip-hop’s narrative. The versatile 14-track project, which includes his rock-inspired follow-up single “Metal Wings”—dropped with a groundbreaking visual directed by Nasser Boulaich—showcases a firm grasp on his craft and boundary-pushing abilities.
