Producer Zaheer drops the track “Assemble” featuring a whole heap of emcees. The track has a recognisable grime theme to it, as do the flows of some of the emcees. There is a taste of the two genres crossing over. The video is nicely filmed, with intro segments to set the scene, followed by straight rapping.
Let us know in the comments if you’re feeling this track.
