Atlanta rapper and producer Kenny Mason is back with a new EP titled “6”, a follow-up to his acclaimed album Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut which was released earlier this year. The six-track project showcases Mason’s versatility and creativity as he blends elements of hip hop, rock, and R&B with his signature lyrical prowess and storytelling.
The EP opens with “Rih”, a hard-hitting track that pays homage to Rihanna and her influence on Mason’s music and style. Mason raps over a distorted guitar riff and trap drums, delivering witty bars and catchy hooks. The next song, “Play Ball”, is a more laid-back and melodic tune that reflects on Mason’s childhood and his love for baseball. Mason sings over a smooth guitar loop and snaps, expressing his nostalgia and gratitude for his past.
The third track, “Partments”, is a collaboration with fellow Atlanta rapper GRIP, who also appeared on Mason’s previous album. The two MCs trade verses over a haunting piano sample and booming bass, detailing their struggles and aspirations in the rap game. The song is followed by “Much Money”, a bouncy and upbeat track that features Freddie Gibbs, another guest from Mason’s last album. The duo rap about their wealth and success over a funky guitar riff and crisp drums, showcasing their charisma and chemistry.
The fifth track, “Storm”, is a more introspective and emotional song that deals with Mason’s depression and anxiety. Mason sings over a melancholic guitar melody and sparse percussion, revealing his inner turmoil and vulnerability. The EP closes with “4ever”, a hopeful and uplifting track that celebrates Mason’s resilience and optimism. Mason raps over a bright guitar chord progression and lively drums, affirming his faith and confidence in himself and his future.
“6” is a testament to Kenny Mason’s artistic growth and vision, as he continues to explore different genres and sounds while staying true to his roots and identity. The EP is a concise and cohesive project that showcases Mason’s talent and potential as one of the most exciting and innovative artists in the current rap scene.
