Paper Route Empire’s Kenny Muney and Key Glock Unite to Ignite Parasites in Latest Video from the Time Is Muney Mixtape

Critical Praise:

“5 under-the-radar rappers from Memphis you should know about…Kenny Muney stands as the city’s rap emissary.” – The FADER

“Laced with familiar southern swagger and street tales, the new project solidifies Kenny has a viable name to keep an eye on as the new year creeps up.” – HotNewHipHop

“The South Memphis native has become a master at bodying the braggadocious current Memphis trap sound, while still finding endless ways to make his personal wit and charm stand out on every track.”Dirty Glove Bastard

The Video:

Specializing in fast-talking head-nodders with a Memphis drawl, Kenny Muney knows how to rock a crowd. Sharing scenes from his recent nationwide tour, Kenny proves that he gets money from coast to coast with “Cross Country,” his new video single. Produced by Bandplay, who matches thumping percussion with Southern-fried horns and ethereal vocals, “Cross Country” is Kenny’s trap travelogue, a lyrical exercise that chronicles the Paper Route Empire rapper’s facility with interstate commerce: “I was out in Cali makin’ Green/They was callin’ me Draymond/I have a ho that I hit in Texas/They call me, the Texas chainsaw/Cut em up and I hop in my race car.”

The new video compiles clips from Kenny’s recent stint opening for fellow PRE rapper Key Glock on the “Yellow Tape Tour,” showing scenes from nearly every state and city that Kenny mentions in his lyrics (“I get money everywhere but Alaska”). The South Memphis native visits the Golden Gate Bridge, Times Square,  his hometown of Memphis, and everywhere in between, where he poses with the locals, dances on his tour bus, and rocks the crowd during sold out dates.

“Cross Country” follows in the wake of Time Is Muney, Kenny’s recent mixtape. Released in February, Time Is Muney is an album suited for headphones–the better to be mesmerized by Kenny’s hypnotic flows. Over 15 tracks, Kenny Muney bolsters his braggadocio as he locks his flows onto each booming instrumental with a heat-seeking missile’s precision. Time Is Muney is home to singles like “Leeches,” the Key Glock collaboration that racked up over 1 million views, and other highlights including “Lowkey,” “For Kenny,” “Long Time Coming,” and “Poppin It.” Earlier this year, Kenny memorialized his mentor Young Dolph with “Role Model,” a touching tribute to Dolph which racked up over 1.7 million views on YouTube in its first two weeks, and appears on Time Is Muney, as well as the recent Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph mixtape. Most recently, Kenny Muney joined his PRE cohort Big Moochie Grape on “Right Now,” a highlight from Moochie’s East Haiti Baby project.

With Time is Muney, Kenny Muney shows that he has the talent and determination to succeed in the Empire-building business. Stay tuned for more from Kenny Muney and Paper Route Empire.

In 2020, Kenny Muney connected with his mentor Young Dolph for “No Regrets,” a highlight track from Dolph’s Rich Slave (Deluxe) album. “I’m never satisfied,” says Kenny Muney. “It’s a gift and a curse.
