Each week, Music Week profiles a red hot brand new artist. Under our microscope this week is Birmingham rapper Mist...
Key Track: Hot Property
Label: Sickmade Records
Management: Catalyst Management
Who: Fast-rising Midlands rapper.
What: Immersive, reflective UK rap. Mist’s delivery has grown in power and impact since he emerged with Sickmade and a 1Take freestyle on the P110 YouTube channel in 2015.
Where: Brum. Listen for the accent.
Haven’t I seen Mist around and about recently…
He’s just been unveiled as a headliner at The Great Escape 2018 alongside frequent collaborator MoStack. That will pop off, for sure.
So, he’s busy?
Very much so. Earlier this month he dropped news of a new project titled Diamonds In The Dirt, due, at the time of going to press, through his Sickmade label very soon. This year, he shared the stage with J Hus, Ray Blk and Dave at Stormzy’s #Merky Festival in Ibiza.
What else should i check out, then?
Hot Property, one of Mist’s collaborations with producer Steel Banglez, and Screw & Brew, a heavy-hitting MoStack hook up that demonstrates their chemistry.
