#SubstanceOverHype Review: @TheAssembly_ZA ft. RIP @Sean Price – So Gone
It’s only right we never neglect the immortal talent that gave us great moments in the culture; rest in poetry Sean Price the New York unorthodox emcee that was part of the dynamic duo Health Skeltah and a collective of super grimy crews from Brooklyn known as Boot Camp Clik. Prior to his untimely passing in 2015 which was a poignant period for heads across the globe, he laced a verse on a joint that produced prodigious bars titled So Gone by The Assembly. The Assembly is a sacred trio formed by Captain, Melly Mel and Lebo Mochudi all endowed with superior penmanship, so it’s plausible why a moment of silence has to be taken for the beat that was completely obliterated by the flawless raps. There isn’t any slacking; instead, it’s a torrent of excellence in stanzas composed with dense rhyming couplets, not forgetting perspicuous punch lines and potent cadence. Be warned as you will be engrossed by the diverse flows that blend brilliantly on the heavy punchy melodic keys on the instrument. The storyline varies from each mic burner yet the notion is coherent, because the content form is easily influenced by braggadocio. The bars bring the same euphoric emotion the country experienced when democracy was still teething ensuing the previous regime being overthrown and what makes it better is that everyone’s delivery is consistent and ages better with every grain of sand dropping from the hourglass. This is what art truly represent, hearing a Justice League of writers that are barbaric with insanely penned flat line quotables. The biblical truth contains an Archbishop (All Sparks) production that filters in your ears faultlessly; this is another solid reason why The Assembly should be on your A-Lister wordsmiths. All the contaminated music has a mandate of infecting your psyche and witness the epidemic poison the undeveloped youth, however, this masterpiece shouldn’t even be categorized as music but treatment prescribed by the Hip Hop deities.
