"Kurt Cobain meets Lil Wayne" – Precise Earz
"Atlanta's soon-to-be star" – Sidney Madden, NPR

“tracks like “Rih” reminds us that he can rap his ass off” – Consequence of Sound
"we've seen just how versatile he is as an artist—calling him a rapper doesn't even do him justice (although he can do that very, very well)." – Pigeons and Planes
"Few artists are able to consistently generate this level of quality and effective storytelling…” – Tyler Borland, Ones To Watch
"The phrase “genre-bending” [has] never been used more appropriately than to describe the music of 25-year-old rapper Kenny Mason" – Jesica McKinny, COMPLEX
"Mason can deliver reflective raps at a steady pace, slip into mesmerizing chants, and dig deep for a high-pitched melody" – Alphonse Pierre, Pitchfork
“Vince Staples-esque detachment, acrobatic triplets in the vein of Lil Baby, and a dutch-angle chirp akin to recent Playboi Carti.” – Entertainment Weekly

to find their footing" – UPROXX
"He's got a Bright future." – The FADER
Toronto, ON – May 6, 2021 – One of Atlanta's most promising and talented new rappers, Kenny Mason, has just released Strays 02, a 12 minute long live performance visual featuring back to back verses from his recent project, Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut, as well as last year's debut, Angelic Hoodrat. The visual is a one of one performance recorded in a single take, unedited and uncut, featuring some of Kenny's hardest hitting bars and rapid-fire verses. The title, Strays, has the implied double meaning of stray verses from his recent project as well as stray dogs, a common theme within the Angelic Hoodrat universe. Strays 02 showcases Kenny's awesome rapping abilities while offering fans a taste of what's to come later this summer when he hits the road on tour with festival dates including Rolling Loud in July.
Released last month on April 16, Kenny Mason's latest project, Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut, expands upon the themes he set forth on last year's debut, showcasing his sweeping vocal range and well-earned reputation for stretching beyond the confines of rap. The new project continues the themes of duality inherent within Angelic Hoodrat representing the concepts of light within darkness, beauty within ugliness, and hope within despair. Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut is the full length spiritual successor to Kenny's 2020 debut album which established his presence as a unique and powerful force within Atlanta's diverse music scene.
Kenny Mason is a critically acclaimed artist from Atlanta, GA who's debut album, Angelic Hoodrat has drawn comparisons from DJBooth to the rise of Kendrick Lamar on his breakout album, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City: "If gang violence was the law of Kendrick Lamar’s maad Compton, finessing is the law of Kenny Mason’s nightmarish Atlanta." Kenny Mason's phenomenal abilities as a rapper and singer were widely acknowledged in late-2019 with his breakout single, Hit, which catapulted him from Atlanta's underground DIY scene to the national spotlight. As Kenny continues to release new music, he's become increasingly known for his genre-bending style of rap which blends his exceptional abilities as a lyricist with the sounds of 90's punk, grunge, and shoegaze bands like The Pixies, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, and My Bloody Valentine.
