Kenny Mason, in my opinion, is one of the most commanding underground rappers out right now, and this debut album Angelic Hoodrat is a clear example of why. His vocal performance is incredible attention-grabbing on every track here, and the instrumentals are hard as fuck. The tracklist is filled with back-to-back bangers, and he shows his lyricism, grit, and determination throughout the album.
At 14-tracks in length, the album contains a high level of technicality. Kenny Mason’s rapping is the peak on this album, and even the more somber tracks are hard-hitting. The beats are also something to cherish. With the production, cohesiveness, and storytelling combined, we could potentially see an all-time hip-hop classic.
Kenny Mason is unique as a young artist because he has established his lyrical skills and ability to work across genres. So it feels as if his debut album has nothing to lose, and for the most part, it succeeds in doing more of what he’s done so far while at the same time stretch out his songwriting skills in a primarily hip hop album. The entire album is concrete proof that Kenny’s one of the best in the game right now. His skills are fine-tuned and well structured, along with the instrumental fire in the background, makes this record as solid as can be.
