Atlanta rapper Kenny Mason dropped one of the year’s best debuts with his hard-hitting, experimental and emotive Angelic Hoodrat. The project found Kenny premiering a sound that pulled wide-reaching inspiration from his hometown’s vast hip-hop history throwing in some hints of even metal and more. Fellow ATLien Deante’ Hitchcock also made his debut with BETTER and seamlessly weaved his way through melodies and soulful grooves for a memorable experience. The two connect for Kenny’s latest single “Give” available to stream now exclusively on YouTube.

The release mirrors his poignant, minimalist and militant all-at-once loosie titled “Storm” which released last week. Produced by Juu, there’s an addicting soul-backed loop with brief horns hitting every few bars. “All my boys done been…/ Raised by bullies and grazed by bullets/ In a neighborhood where *** gave out goodies/ Got ‘Paid in Full’/ Ate a full plate out ovens/ While everybody who stayed in school ain’t got money,” he raps. Toward the end of his verse he’s rapping double-time without a breath to spare throughout the internal rhymes. Deante’ injects his energy with themes of the loss of innocence, his stance on religion and more.

Stream Kenny’s latest release above. In more music updates, 6LACK joined HYPEBEAST to talk about his latest release, 6pc Hot EP in our latest feature “6LACK Used His Latest Project to Learn About Social Justice”.
