Kenny Mason‘s “Hit” was a breakthrough moment for the rising Atlanta rapper that saw him balance introspection with enough head-nodding catchiness to garner millions of replays throughout the months that followed. Now he’s back with his first offering of 2020 in “Metal Wings.”

The song is a guitar-heavy announcement that he’s not holding anything back this year and again displays his ear for melody on the chorus and ability for high-energy bars. It’s a departure from the murky and warped “Angelic Hoodrat” showcasing the 24-year-old’s range in the best way possible.

“I think God, is a dog, a b*tch/ Tongue hangin’ out, cause your squad, a lit/ When my grandma died, she took my heart/ It split/ Now I am the light, in the dark, it’s lit/ I wan’t everything/ Every motherf*cking thing/ I was seventeen/ Auntie put me on the street/ And I met a queen, in the belly of the beast/ And I barely had a thing/ In my belly I ain’t eat,” he rages in the opening lines. It’s an introduction that catches you off guard. The nearly three minute song even ends with a heavy guitar solo as his auto-tuned crooning fades into the background.

Listen to Kenny’s “Metal Wings” below and be on the lookout for more coming from his camp in the near future. In more music news, prolific Midwest rapper Bones is back with another solid project in OFFLINE featuring a standout feature from Three 6 Mafia legend Juicy J.
