REVIEW: MoStack headlines London’s KOKO

November 19, 2017 | D&L

Who said Monday’s had to be dull? Last week saw UK rap artist, Mostack, head to London’s KOKO for the last stop on his headline tour and what a show it was!

Returning to his home city, the North London rapper brought out all the stops, following dates in Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham and had support from ‘4×4’ duo, Young T & Bugsey throughout.

After sharing his 2016 tweet, which revealed one of his biggest dreams was to sell out KOKO by himself, you just knew the sell out affair was going to be a special one.

Entering the stage to a roar of applause and lights from phones capturing the moment, Mostack’s presence alone had supporters excited.

Soon after taking to the stage, it was time to get into his Rated Award winning album, High Street Kid and the first of what was to be many surprise guests for the night, which saw Jiggz join him for their collaboration, ‘Sorry Mama’. With the performance chemistry in full swing and supporters rapping back content word for word, it was one of the night’s many moments to remember.

Taking it all in as the room lit up from phone lights on demand, we got a glimpse of a new release for 2018, before it was time to turn up, with bangers ‘Let It Ring’, ‘Ussy Ussy’, ‘The Friend’ and ‘You Buy Balenciaga’s’.

Just as the vibes were already on 100, the High Street Kid pulled out all the stops, as Fekky joined him for ‘Mad Ting Sad Ting’, Krept for ‘Explore Ya’, Konan for ‘Liar Liar remix’ and Not3s came out for ‘Celebration’ before treating the crowd to an impromptu performance of new track ‘My Lover’ and hit track ‘Aladdin’.

Just when the show was coming to an end, with the star of the night performing his features on ‘No Words’ and ‘Fisherman’, it went off, as Dave, and J Hus joined him on stage to perform their singles themselves. What a way to end the show!

As far as dreams go, Mostack accomplished this and more, as the sold out show was a great night for the UK rap scene, with the added support amongst rising and accomplished artists always being great to see.

Look out for new music coming in the new year.
