Play Ball – [Kenny Mason] x [Julian Cruz]

Electrifying Atlanta artist Kenny Mason returns to Lyrical Lemonade with an electro-alternative jam entitled “Play Ball.” The single will be on Kenny Mason’s highly anticipated Angelic Hoodrat: Supercut project, which serves as an extension of his 2020 debut album. Produced by Julian Cruz, the electric guitar creates a melody reminiscent of an early ’00s rock song, with signature rock star vocals from Mason himself. Accompanied by an Elijah Chauvin directed visual (animated & co-directed by Fabrice Mercier), the strong influences of punk are fascinatingly and effectively met with Mason’s familiar street lens. Detailing the life of a ‘roughneck,’ Kenny’s seemingly breathless rap verse veers the discussion into a dark, dismal reality where even playing a harmless game of baseball poses a life-threatening risk. Despite its dismal theme, “Play Ball” paradoxically is the perfect addition to your pregame playlist, as you anxiously attempt to remove all butterflies before the first pitch.
