Mid-2020, MizOrMac was on the cusp of becoming the next big thing in UK rap, but this was cut short when he got recalled right before Christmas. Promising fans it wasn’t a “full recall” and that he will “be back soon”, the Harlem Spartans rapper did leave us with some gems to enjoy until his return. Released after an earlier hiatus, “Return Of The Mac” was one of 2020’s finest examples of street storytelling and charismatic flows, before teaming up with fellow Spartan Loski for the ad-lib heavy “On Me”, and ending the year with “Right Step Left”. No stranger to the scene, Mizzy can be heard on a number of Harlem Spartans songs and freestyles which date as far back as 2015, but his more recent solo work has put him in great stead for a 2021 takeover. —Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson
