US rapper Austin Fox 狐 has released his impressive new body of work, Ranger396v. The 16-track album follows his 2020 debut project ESCAPE FROM TELEVANIA and is on track to be his biggest release yet.
The rising rapper from Virginia collaborates with a selection of guests on the project, such as Adé Hakim on the focus track Self Serve and ZekeUltra on album outro Energy Wasted, which are two of the highlights on the project. Austin’s full scope of talent is on full display throughout, with each track highlighting his smooth rap flow, world-class penmanship, and skillful wordplay, which is an unbeatable combination and enhanced even further by the quality production of each track. If it wasn’t already clear before the album’s release, there is no doubt now that Austin Fox 狐 is one to watch and has a bright future ahead of him.
Speaking further on the release, Austin says, “The concept of Ranger396v occurred earlier in the year when I went on a really beneficial fishing trip with my grandfather, whose boat model is Ranger396v. At the time, I was unknowingly soon to be laid off from my job of four years and had taken some time off to get away from the office drama. From that trip, I was able to harness the concepts of betrayal, love, and triumph that accurately described the experiences I was going through this past year. This album is also a testament to my spirituality and how much that has grown in recent years as my grandfather is a pastor.”
Ranger396v is available to buy/stream now on all platforms.
