Ken Carson is the first signee to Playboi Carti’s OPIUM imprint and the Atlanta native seems to be on the same wave of intoxicating drug laden raps as his label head. In classic punk rap fashion Ken’s music consists of hypnotizing synth lead beats and auto tuned delivery. Songs like “Yale” show some versatility when he wants to up the energy and get the people moshing. Skip to 6:42 in the video to see how the kids love this dude.
Standouts for me include “Teen x Babe”, “Butterfly”, “Yale” and “High As Shit”. Listen below.
