Key Song: Sen City "What Could I Do"

Sen City doesn't sound terribly close to Max B as a rapper; he's got a cleaner delivery, for one thing. But context forces the comparison. Sen City is a rapper with bars and an ear for hazily melodic hooks, who happens to work for Jim Jones. Max B was pretty much the same. It's not farfetched to suggest this was what attracted Jones to the rapper in the first place, as he pulls double-duty songwriting and writing raps in Max's absence. Sen's a unique enough talent that it shouldn't dog him, but obviously it does to some degree, as he mentions in the opening seconds of "What Could I Do," from the rapper's Til The Lights Turn Out Vol. 2. —David Drake
