Alpha Mason - A Note To You
The understated delivery has become an underrated presence in rap. As much as many Atlanta rappers are doing the post-Future mumble (which is often great, don't get me wrong), there's always a lot of movement behind their deliveries. On Alpha Mason's new submission, he brings a spoken word-leaning approach to a warm key-laden instrumental, making for a welcome throwback to a simpler time.
Meanwhile, the hook is a buried vocal melody, complimented by some lush instrumental work. Overall, it's an unconventional record that hits all the targets it aims for. Listen to more music from Mason on his official SoundCloud page.
