INTERVIEW: Sean Leon w/ The Come Up Show

Ty Harper | Music | Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

S.L. chops it up about his journey and more with Chedo + plugs his show coming up on the 26th at The Mod Club.

And yeah, a Sean Leon show is an experience, still!

This week we have Toronto artist Sean Leon as our guest. Aside from rapping he is also a visual artist, dabbling in the arts of film-making and directing. He started out in 2013 with the release of his first mixtape “Ninelevenne, the Tragedy,” which featured production by Jordan Evans who also worked on Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same.” He had a second mixtape release in 2014, and started releasing singles up until 2016 with the release of his album “I Think You’ve Gone Mad Or (The Sins Of The Father)” which featured production by Wondagurl.

Sean Leon takes us through the lowest points in his career, his thoughts on promoting mental health in the black community, and destructing black masculinity. We discuss that and more in our interview with the “hungry” artist. Below is an excerpt from our talk, play the podcast to hear more.

Each and every Wednesday we’ll be uploading a brand new interview with a guest we feel that you should know about. If you love podcasts subscribe at the options below.

Shouts to this dude for selling this album for $100 on Bandcamp, lol. Feel you bruh. And I’m not even being sarcastic. How well it’ll work for him, I dunno. But I get it. And yes. It’s confusing how he’s been releasing music but whatever. It’s the Internet age man. It’s the wild wild west out here. On a more serious note, RIP Redway.

Sean Leon is a name that has resonated with Toronto’s eclectic music and culture scene for years. Before releasing his first album, he formed the IXXI initiative which is the collaborative project dedicated to bringing Toronto’s artistic community together. This collective has lead a positive and influential regime for artists, and has in turn made Sean Leon a muse for the Canadian music industry. Sean Leon is a pillar to the success of many of his peers and emanates his creative influence on a number of collaborations. He’s collaborated with artists such as Daniel Caesar, BADBADNOTGOOD, River Tiber, and WondaGurl
In July 2013 Sean Leon released his debut mixtape “Ninelevenne, the Tragedy” that brought a fresh perspective to Toronto’s active hip-hop community. Sean Leon followed up with his second mixtape in 2014 “Narcissus, the Drowning of Ego” which reinforced this perspective. 
This brings us to a new and exciting project from the creative mind of Sean Leon, “Life When You’re The Movie”. This short film will act as a visual representation of Sean Leon’s musical styles. Raw, stylized and authentic productions that evolves through no limitations. The film will preview music from his forthcoming album “I think You’ve Gone Mad” expected to release before the Summer.
