Toronto, ON – March 12, 2021 – Kenny Mason is a jarringly talented 25 year old artist from Atlanta whose genre-bending blend of rap and alternative rock has catapulted him from Atlanta's underground DIY scene to the national spotlight and beyond. Today, Kenny Mason has released his newest single and video, Pup, along with the announcement of his upcoming project, Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut. The song, which was co-produced by Kenny and Julian Cruz, features Kenny Mason rapping over oscillating high-frequency keys as a heavily distorted guitar riff bleeds in and out of the track. The video, directed by Nasser Boulaich and Unkle Luc, features data moshed clips of Kenny, his pup, and his crew prowling the streets of Atlanta at night. Pup is the second offering from Kenny Mason this year following his recently released sonic portrait, Partments. Both singles will be on Kenny Mason's upcoming Supercut, which is coming out on April 16.
Kenny Mason is picking up right where he left off after his breakout year in 2020. Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut will feature 12 brand new tracks with guest features from Freddie Gibbs, Ambar Lucid, and Angel White. Kenny Mason's debut project positioned him as a prominent voice in the ever-changing Atlanta music scene. The result was a strong, cohesive debut on Angelic Hoodrat which also saw cinematic, story driven visuals directed by Nasser Boulaich for Angels Calling, Firestarter, Hit, Angelic Hoodrat, and a joint video for Chevron/PTSD.
Within a short amount of time, Kenny Mason has climbed up a promising ladder of success: performing at Rolling Loud Miami 2019, being named one of August's "Best New Artists" by Pigeons & Planes, having his song, G.O.A.T., featured on HBO's hit show, Euphoria and being named among COMPLEX's 25 Rappers to Watch in 2020.
