Brooklyn rapper Sene is releasing his sophomore full-length album Brooklyknight on April 24th via Plug Research (Bilal, Exile, Quadron). The album features a who's who of the West Coast underground scene including Blu, Coss, Scienze and more.

Set in New York, after Sene lived in LA for 5 years, the video takes us into Sene's mind as he returns home and tries to make sense of the New York hip-hop scene and his place within it. The video is a thoughtful homage to the perseverance of New York's musical pulse and the story of a rapper, but more importantly, a person, making his way through this crazy town.
