Much respect to you!





The Name, Hense, where did it come from? 
Hense is my first name, I'm the 3rd... I was searching for a "rap name" that fit me and I felt like "what fits me better than my name" 


when you were a little kid, what did you say you wanted to be when you grew up? 
Man, when i was a kid I went through so many phases. I wanted to be a break dancer,ninja, skateboarder, and whatever else looked cool on t.v. haha


When it comes to the whole aspect of the music industry, what gives you that drive to make music & want to pursure further? 
My drive comes from the fact that I grew up thinking I didnt have much of a purpose. I was never great at anything I tried (ie. school, sports, girls etc) so when I started writing and saw that I had potential and a message, I wanted to pursue music because I feel as if this may be my only purpose

 What projects are you working on? 
Currently I am working on an EP with a friend and a dope dj/producer DJ CZYK called "Less is More" its gonna be a pretty short project that's gonna have a "boom bap" or 90's type vibe to it... And I have a projectt in the works called "Scenes Out Of Dreams" which I have been working on for atleast 2 years. And its going to be DOPE haha


If you had to choose One person to perform with from the industry who would it be and why?
Aw man, so many haha but if I had to pick one it would be ... uhhh.... Mos Def, who I grew up listening to and idolized, such a unique style of rhyming and he has the charisma, hell even if i cant perform I'll be cool watching.


Who are some producers you would like to work with later on? 
9th Wonder, Jake One, Flying Lotus, Exile, Knxwledge,14KT, MF DOOM.. can go ALL day lol but these are some of the mains.

what do you think is the best thing about being an artist? 
Performing is one of my favorite things so far, though i havent had a real huge crowd or anything yet I love presenting my talents in a way that is raw and not really planned out. Its exciting



what goals do you have for this coming year?
 This year Im planning on dropping a few projects, networking, and getting myself a little more buzz than 2012



So, what are your top 3 songs on ya ipod? 
Amy Winehouse- "In My Bed" which is a classic song by the way... Skyzoo- "Steels Apartment" and if u havent heard his new album please do so... and Erykah Badu- "Orange Moon"



later on, if you were to win an award for your music, who would you thank? 
So many people have helped and influenced me so far and I know more will come in the future, but I would thank my mother for being one of my favorite supporters. I didnt know how she would react when I told her this is what I wanted to do, and not only did she accept it she is a fan of my music..... that the main out of the 5 min long thank you speech I just wrote lol



Who were your greatest influences musically? 
Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, Murs, Blu, Elzhi, Mos Def, Kanye (when he 1st started), Dwele, and of course the late J Dilla



do you write your own music or do you have a team that you work with?
 i Write all of my music. whether its in the iphone, notebook, back of a receipt, or a napkin haha



what kind of impact do you hope your music will leave on fans & remember for years to come?
I want people to remember me as a humble, unselfish, and regular guy as well as a dope and original emcee.  


is there any quote or saying, that you live by or you feel that inspires you?
Yea, actually one that I wrote "Dont let dark skies get u down cuz the sun still shines its just hidden by the clouds" and as a person that has ups and downs regularly this reminds me that I can always get through whatever situation I am in

In conclusion, i just gotta ask, describe yourself in 3 words. Broke, Hungry, Thankful :)
