Reg Mason is an alternative hip-hop artist from New Jersey who since 2019 has been making wavey music. Finally, fans can rejoice as his debut album ‘TESTDRIVE‘ is available on Mixtape Madness first, full of cold bars and smooth production. Over these ten tracks, Mason details his artistic evolution with his storytelling just as good as his effortless flow.

Equally as on point is the varied and fresh beats courtesy of fellow New Jersey native CURT. Whether on the floaty, sci-fi-esque sounds of ‘STÉ‘ or the soothing ‘fearful’/MA’‘, the production fits nicely and hits all the sonic pallets you desire. Mason is just as diverse, with rapitty rap spitting or melodic flows depending on what is needed. This is highlighted by his influences ranging from artists such as MF Doom to JPEGMAFIA, present throughout the project. Also, the features from JTT and GINI complement Mason nicely.

Whether on singles like ‘CHECKERBOARD!‘ or new material like the multifaceted closer ‘SEQUEL’/CUTE‘, this project has something for everyone. It’s an insightful tale of one man’s journey in life and the rap game, that is definitely worth your attention.
