Ken Carson with a silver chain around his neck. He will perform during this year's edition of the Orange Warsaw Festival
Ken Carson is living proof of another maxim: that steel sharpens steel. That was his experience growing up around the celebrated producer, TM88, and the cadre of rappers who worked closely with him. When Carson was still a teenager, he inked a deal with Carti’s Opium imprint and began distilling his buoyant energy into the EPs that would introduce him to the world at large: "Boy Barbie" and "Teen X". By the end of 2021, he had released two more EPs and a debut album, "Project X", and eventually his label debut "X". But no project to date has synthesized all the things that make Ken Carson special like "A Great Chaos" - his third official LP. Debuting at an impressive No. 11 on the Billboard 200, the album made a resounding impact on listeners across the globe. But it wasn’t just the numbers that spoke volumes; it was the critical acclaim that poured in from a myriad of outlets including Billboard, Pitchfork, The New York Times, and more. This album is more than just a collection of songs; it’s a testament to Ken Carson’s unparalleled talent and the connection he shares with his audience.
