Kenny Mason continues his hot-streak, returning with his first release since dropping his debut full-length Angelic Hoodrat with the surprise single, “Storm”. On the record, premiered by Audiomack earlier today (July 7, 2020) the rising West Atlanta rapper continues to present sonics that are unique to him with warped keys backing his down-tempo flow with the perfect amount of melody. His lyrics are wise beyond his years and he’s already found a pocket to deliver a combination of laid-back flows only to turn around and deliver a chorus with resounding energy.

“Storm” follows a steady stream of solid visuals like “Firestarter” and the double narrative for “Chevron” and “PTSD”. Earlier this year he expanded his sound with some electric guitar in a rock-ballad inspired track titled “Metal Wings” to introduce his new project to the masses.

Despite the pacing of “Storm,” the track is filled with inner-conflict. Kenny raps, “I can’t battle no blue badges/ Rather get blue stacks/ Money will do things you can’t do with a strap…” Then later in the verse he rounds out with, “Thinkin’ I’ma change it, once I get out of the trap/ But thinkin’ that I can change it might be part of the trap.” The overall aesthetic is in a similar lane to Angelic Hoodrat but there’s a patience that comes with the song that best showcases his steady growth as an artist.

Listen to Kenny’s latest offering above. In more music news, Pusha T and Young Thug are currently feuding over a Drake diss on a posthumous Pop Smoke song that ultimately wasn’t released. Here’s the full rundown.
