Following a flurry of teasers on social media, North London’s rising star MoStack has finally announced the release of his highly anticipated debut album, Stacko, out June 7 via Virgin EMI.
With his label focusing on expanding his ever-growing fan-base, today sees the release of the album’s first track, Wild. The accompanying music video, shot by Kaylum Dennis, captures MoStack doing what he does best – rapping, vibing and flowing in his playful style. Combined with production from one of the UK’s hottest producers right now – ADP - Wild is a statement in itself; setting the bar for what is set to be an incredible album.
After a series of headline shows across the continent the rapper has built up a number of supporters within the media with Pitchfork declaring that MoStack is, “The next UK rapper with widespread pop appeal”, with Complex adding MoStack is “gradually cementing his place within the British music industry as a songwriter, rapper, and singer of note”.
He was named by BBC 1Xtra as one of the hottest artists to look out for in 2017, the year he released his High Street Kid mixtape, which debuted at number 16 on the UK album chart whilst also holding the number one position on the iTunes and Apple Music charts.
The rapper amassed over 140m streams the following year and secured his third silver certified record with What I Wanna, which became the most played record on Radio 1 for three consecutive weeks.
After ending last year strong with the highly infectious track Teach You Gangsta as well as appearing on producer Steel Banglez’s track Fashion Week early this year - peaking at number seven in the Official Charts - 2019 is set to be an even bigger for MoStack. He’s already broken records with his GRM Daily Duppy freestyle - currently sitting on over 3.7m views making it one of the most viewed freestyles of the current new season.
