SEN2 KBRN, VOL. 2

SEN2 KBRN, VOL. 2

“I actually wasn't going to drop anything this year,” Eladio Carrión tells Apple Music. “Last year we did three of them, so it was kind of hard for me not to put out stuff this year and keep quiet.” Presented as a sort of stopgap release for the versatile and oft prolific trapero, SEN2 KBRN, VOL. 2 continues a mixtape series from last year’s inaugural volume with hard rhymes laden with metaphors and punchlines. From the luxe boasts of “Mbappé” to the surprising approach of “Carta a Dios,” all served over beats by the likes of Foreign Teck and Hydro, he proves once more his place among Latin hip-hop’s elite lyricists and performers. “When I do Sauce Boyz, that's my album: features, all types of genres, everything,” Carrión explains. “When I do SEN2 KBRN, it's going to be all trap, no features, and a lot of bars.” Read more about some of the songs on SEN2 KBRN, VOL. 2, in the artist’s own words, below. “Gladiador” “Intros may not be the songs that pop the most in albums, but it's the most important song of the album by far. When you read a book, the first paragraph, the first four sentences have to capture you. If not, you're not going to want to read the rest. It has to really capture you. I've been looking to do this type of beat for so long, and when we finally got the right sound to it, I cried in the studio. It was something truly beautiful.” “Mbappé” “Hydro has a new partner producing-wise. His name is Bassy. I met him maybe a year ago, or less, but dude is crazy. He's like 19 years old, but he’s got the same energy as Hydro. He's going to be a beast too. Right now, I have the best trap producers in Latin America.” “Caras Vemos” “I'm very proud of this song. It's a romantic song, but it has so many punchlines in it. I'm not talking shit, I'm not talking about a designer. I’m talking about romantic stuff, like love stuff, and there's punchline, punchline, punchline.” “Hugo” “DVLP is a genius, bro. We just introduced him on this project now, but he's going to be on all my other projects. We've known each other for a while, but we never got to lock in like a couple days and really get a song done. ‘Hugo,’ that’s a movie. When we made that beat, I said, ‘I need you to make something that's suspenseful as [Lil Wayne’s] ‘Blunt Blowin.’ You do not know how that song changed my life, but it has. And he delivered. I respect him a lot for what he has done in the game, for what he's done for me.” “Te Dijeron” “That's probably the most commercial song on the album and that I probably wasn't going to put on SEN2, because it didn't feel SEN2. But it was so good that when I found the perfect slot for it on the tracklist, I said, ‘Nah, it's a done deal.’ It's one of my favorites on the album. It's so well-produced. What it's talking about, people are going to relate to it.” “La Fama” “That's a song that I'm proud of too. I feel like it's a song that a lot of people in the industry are going to hear, maybe artists, and feel they can relate to that song. That's a song I did for other people in the industry who might feel that type of way, but don't ever say it. I try and be as real as possible with my fans and with myself.”
