Cadence Weapon – SENNA (feat. Jacques Greene) [Official Music Video] (Video)

“No doubt, several of you will feel a strange familiarity of the sound that any second now will be welcomed by an avalanche of fans and their awesome music! Be prepared to meet the timeless new hit on the music scene now. Easy to fall into the trance that accompanies a sound so rich in texture and range. It’s hard to believe what you’re hearing is coming from just one man.”

Cadence Weapon, the moniker of Toronto-based rapper, producer, writer and poet Rollie Pemberton, is back a blistering new LP Parallel World, out April 30th via eOne Music.

“SENNA” is the first single, about self-determination and taking the road less travelled, and is a reunion collaboration with Jacques Greene (LuckyMe/Night Slugs/Vase Records) following their work together on the self-titled Cadence Weapon (2018). It’s inspired by legendary Brazillian F1 driver Ayrton Senna.

Using elements of trap, drill, grime and acid house, Parallel World is the soundtrack for the dystopian future we’ve somehow found ourselves in, with everyone dealing with their own realities relating to these issues.
