Inspired by rappers like Jah Safe and Vitamin D, Sense continued to own his style and continued recording ever since.
Competitive by nature, Sense sharpened his sword by engaging in ever cypher he could, rapping in subway tunnels, banging on lunch tables, and making cassettes at his friends house. To support his craft he worked at local Hiphop store the Bassment selling CDs, DVDs and graffiti products.

He continued his passion by partaking in beat battles, rhyme battles, and constantly making underground classics with his a-alikes. Currently, Sense is working on beat tapes, live performances, and rap albums. As a father of two, Senses goal is to one day pass the fundamentals of emceeing onto the next generation as a means of uplifting communities.
