Toronto rising star Patrik Kabongo has released his single ‘98 Degrees’, taken from his hot new project The High End Pack. Over bouncing bass and kinetic hip-hop beats, Patrik delivers infectious melodies and a smooth rap flow. Although it eludes major dance vibes, ‘98 Degrees’ veers away from a typical tropical groove and towards jangly samples as Patrik crafts a dark and original soundscape. He says of the track: “I wanted to create a high tempo song for the summer. Something that would have the blended energy of heavy trap bass and Lil Mama’s ‘Lip Gloss’.”
Patrik’s new eight-track project The High End Pack includes the TikTok Nationwide Campaign singles High End & High End (120 Remix), five new records, videos and a limited capsule auction available through NFTs. The Canadian rapper has gained international recognition, receiving support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Earmilk, Complex Canada and much more. Patrik Kabongo is pioneering his own route towards stardom, and he’s only just getting started.
