With a fiery flow and co-signs from some of the best in the game, Rot Ken is coming for the Georgia rap throne. Sharing a video for a melodic highlight from his recent Free Me mixtape, Ken mobs with Atlanta’s 21 Lil Harold in “Ginobili.” Created in collaboration with a long line of heavy-hitting producers, including JetsonMade and Neeko Baby of Spaceboy Productions, and Rio Leyva, Nico Baran, and Taz Taylor of Internet Money, “Ginobili” is a showcase for Ken’s freewheeling flexes: “I bеat on the bag, I beat up her back/A studio junkie, I’m still in the lab.” Lil Harold’s halting drawl is the perfect complement to Ken’s fast-talking styles, as the two rappers trade verses over hyperactive pianos and trampoline 808s. In the video, directed by Man Films, both rappers retreat to the outskirts of Atlanta to count their cash and spend quality time with a baddie.
“Ginobili” is the latest in a line of high-quality visuals from Ken, most recently following the high-rolling clip for “Foreign.” The two Free Me videos continue the artist’s triumphant, which launched earlier this month with his new video single, “Rollin.” Though Ken has been away for much of 2022, his presence has still been still heavily felt. In May, the 18-year-old artist shared Free Me, a 17-track project that showed his range, and demonstrated his singular ability to cut through immersive production with effervescent flows. The Augusta native’s project featured underground hits like “Baby Choppa” (1.6 million Spotify streams), “Heartbreak Kid” (1.6 million Spotify streams), and “Beautiful,” a collaboration with SoFaygo that racked up over 3.2 million Spotify streams. With additional appearances from Kalan.FrFr and Hunxho, Free Me is available everywhere now.
Signed to Internet Money Records, in partnership with JetsonMade’s Spaceboy Productions, look for Ken to keep annihilating state-of-the-art production for many years to come.
