Dubbed as the biggest rap album to drop in the UK this year, AR15 – #ConcreteJungle approaches it’s long awaited release date on August 28th. The project is the first of it’s kind with unseen and unheard of collaborations in UK Grime and Rap that is going to surprise the world.
Featuring an all-star line up of three founding members of the Grime scene Skepta, Kano & Bashy come together for ‘Can’t See Me Again’ over a Nana Rogues produced beat premiered by The Fader. The trio take it in turns to rhyme about their lives, the changes, letting go of the past and moving on for the better.
Bashy explains “It’s a long time since I’ve linked up with my brothers Skepta and Kano, we come from the original school of grime and it’s always a pleasure to be able to get back to the roots of where we came from. ‘Can’t See Me Again’ not only gave me the opportunity to do that but also look at where we’ve all got to at this point in time in our music”.
Monster track ‘Trapping Aint Dead’ featuring Section Boyz laid some strong foundations on which Squeeks, Sneakbo, Dubz, Stormzy & Mr Bigz built further with the release of ‘Out In The Jungle’, followed by the noteworthy line up, on the highly playlisted, single, Helpless, which features Wretch 32, Devlin & Swiss.
