Assembly Generals

Equipped with knives, guns, masks and camouflage jackets, the Manila-based hip-hop squad promise/threaten to overthrow the corrupted system that exploits the weak and poor. And the director Kevin Vea is obviously on the rebel’s side as is his restless camera.

The single “Kontrabida” (“Villain”) comes off Assembly Generals’ self-titled debut album, relased earlier this year to a great critical acclaim. And while “Kontrabida” might be the record’s most spectacular point, it’s certainly worth checking out the whole thing.
