Following on from this year’s singles ‘Pictures’ and ‘Repentance’, Toronto one-to-watch Patrik Kabongo is bringing his 2021 journey to a momentous milestone with The High End Pack, featuring the heated track ‘98 Degrees’. Unlike many summer anthems that lean into bright, bubbly and tropical-themed sounds, Kabongo is staying true to his style with this moody and sophisticated hip-hop gem.
"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 Kabongo
The High End Pack is a high tempo eight-track project which displays Patrik Kabongo’s sonic & artistic versatility. It includes the Tik-Tok Nationwide Campaign singles ‘High End’ and ‘High End (120 Remix)’, five new records, videos and a limited capsule auction available through NFTs.
