Mist is the rap phenom hailing from Birmingham. Throughout 2016 he began a rapid ascent to the top of the UK Rap scene with the release of a number of anthemic and widely playlisted records including ‘Smokey’, ‘Karla’s Back’, which gained an impressive 4 million views online, and the equally presidential collaboration with MoStack, ‘On My Ones’, making him a contender for the biggest UK rap artist of the year.
The year culminated in the release of the ‘M I S to the T’ E.P which made its iTunes debut at number 4 on the official chart and rose to the top spot of the album chart. Visuals for the lead track ‘Aint The Same’ were released via GRM Daily and within a week hit 1 million views. The view count on the cinematic visuals, which were shot in Dubai, became the latest in the epic and impressive impact on YouTube that saw MIST gain over 20 MILLION views online and become the main talking point of UK Rap.
