Nathaniel ‘Life is a Blessing’

Our project leads on from the Rob Bradley workshops at Bassett Green. On Friday 2 December 2022 two rappers from Bassett Green released their debut tracks, recorded at MAST Music Studio. This track is about “inspiring people to keep trying hard, and to not give up on their dreams, no matter what happens to them.”
