“Senica is a lyricist with a throwback feel about him. Throughout Heavy Art – ILLery there are plenty of references to 90s hip hop, with quotables about the movie Juice, his love for Timberlands, and mentions of rap acts like Mobb Deep and Black Moon. He even has a feature from Wu Tang Clan member, Inspectah Deck on “Ahh Yeah”, complete with a kung fu movie sample. The production is mostly reminiscent of early Kanye West, Havoc, and DJ Premier, with a few spaced out, futuristic sounding beats sprinkled in.”
