Sene Interview

We tend to identify musicians by their location, yet when they move, we sometimes associate them with the wrong place. After moving to Los Angeles from Brooklyn for five years, Sene experienced this confusion and says it was part of the inspiration for his latest release “Brooklyknight”. “I would always read things like ‘the West Coast artist’ or ‘the Los Angeles native’… so not only to remind people where I’m from but to let them know where the mind state was, where I’m coming from, and what influences what I’m saying.. People were saying that New York fell off so it kinda became this joke like ‘okay let’s see if you’re the knight in shining armor.”

Despite returning home and fully establishing himself as a New Yorker, he does have plans of working with the California, by way of Texas emcee; Chuuwee. In addition he mentions working with the talented emcees New York has to offer, including a collective effort from himself with Soul Khan, YC The Cynic, and ScienZe. This of course following ScienZe’s newest project produced entirely by Sene and Sly5thAve. When asked if a project is stemming from the track “Young Leaders” with Blu and ANTHM he replied, “if there is a project in the works, that’s not on it.”

He also spoke about not reading blogs, being a former childhood model, and working on both Pace Rivers and Denitia Odigie’s upcoming projects.
