Signed to both Taz Taylor’s Internet Money and jetsonmade’s BoyMeetSpace, Georgia rhymer Rot Ken has his choice of sterling instrumentals to annihilate. Turning a cyclonic trap beat into a story of his improbable rise, Rot Ken shares “Miracle,” his brand new single. Produced by Census, jetsonmade, Pooh Beatz, Taz Taylor, Malikaix8, and Acex8, “Miracle” twists whirring sine synths and hard-hitting electric keys into a trap tornado, layering it all above trampoline 808s. Changing speeds with the grace of a gazelle, Ken alternates fast-paced triplets and soulful melodies to illustrate the thrill and danger of trap living: “Killer Kenny made it out the spot, it’s a miracle.” The track connects Ken with Young Nudy, another Georgia native known for his taste in beats, who slithers around the synthesizers with his signature drawl, his icy demeanor contrasting Rot Ken’s hot-headed bars.
“Miracle” is Ken’s second new single of 2023, following up the JetsonMade, Xjay, and Jmoneywaveyy-produced “Bleed About It,” which received a new music video last week. “Bleed About It” and “Miracle” continue the momentum that kicked off with his December project, Yahweh Child. On Yahweh Child, the young rapper rains down triplet flows and searing hooks like manna from heaven over a complement of state-of-the-art Internet Money and BoyMeetSpace instrumentals. Home to fiery singles like “Mask On“ (1 million Spotify streams) and “No Mind” (1.4 million Spotify streams), Yahweh Child is available everywhere via BoyMeetSpace / Internet Money / 10K Projects.
Rot Ken made a name for himself in 2022 as one of the Georgia trap scene’s hottest up-and-comers. Yahweh Child is the follow-up to May’s 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” (1.7 million Spotify streams), “Heartbreak Kid” (1.7 million Spotify streams), and “Beautiful,” a collaboration with SoFaygo that racked up over 3.9 million Spotify streams. With additional appearances from Kalan.FrFr, Hunxho, and 21 Lil Harold, the 17-track Free Me project is available everywhere now.
Focused firmly on the future and with some of the best producers in the game in his corner, there’s no stopping Rot Ken’s rise to the top of the rap game. Stay tuned for much more.
