Atlanta wunderkind Kenny Mason is gearing up for a special September.

Following the release of his teaser EP Pup Pack in August, the “Get An Idea” emcee is now streaking towards the release of his upcoming project, RUFFS, later this month.

Previously posting a slew of stark black-and-white photos on social media — shot by the inimitable creative director JMP — Kenny revealed the mixtape is confirmed to drop on Sept. 28 in a new teaser video on Wednesday (Sept. 21), sharing the cover art and tracklist just a few days later. Featuring Jean Dawson, Young Nudy, Amindi and DavidTheTragic!, RUFFS is poised to be not only polished, but rough around the edges — much like Kenny’s edgy, rock-infused sound.

Mason’s RUFFS will be his first full-length tape since 2021. Along with sharing a lively 3-pack in August, Mason brought forth a pair of visuals coinciding the short yet robust EP. “Get An Idea,” which dropped on the eve of Pup Pack’s release, and his latest “Dip!” showcase Kenny’s creative evolution and arc as an artist in its purest form.

His track presence, vocal prowess and signature guitar-heavy sound fully captivate new wave audiences — providing a familiar yet left-of-center niche unique to the current landscape of our generation. Only “DIP!” and “Halloween” are set to wind up on RUFFS, however, Pup Pack was an impressive starting point for Mason’s incoming era.

Prior to Pup Pack, Mason bodied feature verses on JID’s instant AOTY contender The Forever Story as well as showing out on Dreamville’s mega-hit “Stick.”

Having released the Supercut deluxe to his 2020 debut album Angelic Hoodrat last April, it’s clearer than ever that Kenny is coming to take over the game — letting himself off the leash as RUFFS looms closer.

This story will be updated.
