East London Grime legend Monkstar has called upon fellow legendary MC JME for ‘Calm‘, a high-powered offering produced by Filthy Gears. Ensuring the track is anything but “calm“, the MC duo bring rapid flows over the 808-heavy instrumental, whilst still delivering heavyweight and cautionary bars.
Taking to Twitter to shed light on the inspiration behind the link-up, Monkstar explained that upon hearing JME merk the Filthy Gears instrumental on a Rinse FM radio show with DJ Maximum and DJ Intense, he instantly moved on creating an official release including both JME‘s bars and Filthy Gears‘ riddim.
The inspiration behind 'Calm' ft @JmeBBK @FilthyGears posted a clip… I shouted him for the instrumental then shouted JME cos all I heard was him killing the tune and you all will get to hear it on Friday!!!
