Interview with Seth Sentry!


1. Tell us a little bit about yourself

My name is Seth Sentry & I like to rap in my free time

2. When did you realise that you were a lyrical genius and begin to write raps/ lay rhymes?

Haha, genius is a bit of a stretch. But I started writing short stories when I was a kid & it just went from there.

3. Tell us about your journey from small time underground rapper to renowned Australian superstar touring the country. When you were young did you envision yourself being where you are today?

Definitely not! To be honest I only ever did it because it was fun. I never ever thought I could make a living by talking rubbish.

4. Where do you get your material from and what do you most like to write raps about?

I get my inspiration from the world around me and a lot of times Im only seeing a tiny part if that so my songs can end up being about trivial first world stuff. My favourite type of raps to write though are straight up battle raps.

5. Who are you when you’re not renowned Australian rapper Seth Sentry? What are your other hobbies?

My passion is definitely gaming, absolute love it. Watch a lot of movies too

6.You seem to have a great sense of humour, ever thought of doing stand up?

Doing stand up comedy must be the most terrifying thing ever! Im good thanks. My friend Steele Saunders is a stand up comedian though, you should check him out!

7.What has been your favourite performance (yours or one you’ve seen)?

When Kanye first came out here & he bought a small string section & DJ JS1 with him. Amazing show!

8. Is the waitress song based on a true story? Tell us more! Did you ever think that it would crack the big time?

Yep, true story. Although I never got to play the song for her as shed quit a week before I had the song finished. Definitely never thought people would respond to it the way they did.

9. Who inspires you?

Aesop Rock more than anyone else. Listen to Aesop Rock.

10.What is your fondest teenage memory?

Listening to Wu Tang 36 Chambers in my friend’s parent garage, getting up to no good.

11. What is some advice you’d give to young upcoming performers/ rappers/ hip hoppers?

Take your time & hone your craft. First impressions last.

12. What would you tell your 17 year old self?

Stop gelling your fringe.

13. Do you know what ‘YOLO’ is an acronym for? (no cheating by googling it!)

You oughta laugh often!?
