Why do we like this?

We've shared Sene's music with you guys before. Coming off the out-the-blue buzz of "Exit,Us," the Brooklyn native is readying a debut album for release on Plug Research later this spring.  He recently leaked "Backboards," featuring his left coast brethren, the ever-enigmatic Blu. The two step back and examine their surroundings, both regionally and musically, over a sweet string loop and drums that sound like bangin' on the lunch table at school.

Sene is rare in his simplicity. He's not the flashy 90s throwback that Mr. Muthafuckin Exquire or Action Bronson are (respect to both), nor is he purposefully trying to forgo his N.Y. heritage.

The debut Brooklyknight has a consistent sound that wouldn't sound too out of place in 1996 or 2001, but holds up perfectly well in 2012. He's jovial without being silly and pensive without sounding like Killah Priest in "B.I.B.L.E." An everyman MC with above-average qualities, Sene is an MC focused on good music, plain and simple.
