Sene f/ Blu – ‘Backboards’ | Music Video

As if the music itself wasn’t vivid enough, Brooklyn rep Sene presents more visuals to accompany material from his brooklynknight album, this time bringing the “Backboard” cut, which features frequent-collaborator Blu, to life. Pace Rivers and aaronisnotcool share the director’s credits, and brilliantly capture the punishing tones in Sene’s song through distorted and purple-filtered footage of his home city.

Bringing things full circle, the firefighter depicted towards the end is actually his brother (who taught Sene how to rap once upon a time). It wouldn’t surprise me if this earned a spot on many year-end lists as one of the best videos. Sene’s brooklynknight is out now.
