Ken Car$on drops long-awaited debut album ‘Project X’

Ken Car$on has released his debut album Project Xan 11-track featureless mosaic of the Opium artist’s signature new wave sound. With euphoric, electro-trap production and catchy, tight-knit flows, Ken continues to ascend to new heights as Project X solidifies his place amongst other top-tier producer-rappers.


18-year-old new wave phenom Ken Car$on seems to be heating up as the summer rolls on.

After dropping the visual to TEEN Xs hit “Butterfly” this month — along with releasing “Patrick Ewing” featuring Lil Tecca — Car$on is in album mode, gearing up to drop his highly-anticipated debut album, Project X, on July 23.

Car$on took to social media Saturday night posting a barrage of SoundCloud links and snippets. Donning a “Project X” t-shirt, it looks as if Ken is more than excited to finally release his long-awaited debut.

In celebration, Car$on also dropped six new songs on his SoundCloud titled “Lost Files 2.” Each track was individually posted to the Atlanta rapper’s Twitter feed, as Car$on’s SoundCloud specials hope to generate more hype for Project X in the coming weeks.

The 18-year-old Atlanta native’s sound is not a bite or carbon copy of the sub-genre Playboi Carti popularized. Rather, Car$on brings his own element to it, refreshingly blending the glitchy, airy idiosyncrasies of punk and hip-hop. Citing Carti as an inspiration for his music, it’s not a surprise that Ken signed with his label Opium earlier this year — sitting down with OGM to discuss his signing, upcoming music, fashion and more.

As Car$on continues to curate his own sound, he’s paving his own legacy in the process. Project X not only looks to become Ken’s stepping stone to mainstream acclaim, but is defiantly set to shoot the TEEN X rapper to greater heights.
