North London’s favourite MoStack is finally back with his long-awaited mixtape ‘High Street Kid 2’ - the follow-up of his career-defining, fan favourite project ‘High Street Kid’which won best mixtape at the renowned GRM Rated Awards in 2017.
The 14 track mixtape comes alongside a Kaylum Dennis directed visual for ‘Frankenstein’ featuring MIST, a collaboration the fans know and love.
Recorded over lockdown, the tape takes the listener back to the mesmerising tones that made the first ‘High Street Kid’ so successful. Conceptually, says MoStack, “there are stories about how I’ve been in love.” Many of the tape’s tracks are hosted by women, with phone calls bookending several tunes. But peel back the curtain and there’s also a focus on tears shed for lost friends (‘I Know’), fears of being left for someone better (‘Would You’, ‘Real Love’) and growing up without a father’s care and guidance.
He says: “Since I released the tape, people have been asking for the follow-up. They’ve been saying ‘We want to hear that old MoStack. We want to hear ‘High Street Kid’. Do High Street 2, so it only feels right that I release the follow-up to the fans – they’re the ones who got me here.”
