“Do you love me like you say you do?”
Toronto rapper Sean Leon has released the visuals for his two latest tracks, “BY MYSELF 9:11 EST” and “GOD MC 9:05 PM EST”, in the form of a 7-minute short film titled, “TOOK A TRAIN TO FIND THE WORDS”. Here’s what Leon had to say about the making of the film:
“Since becoming a father I haven’t had much time to myself. I went to go visit my mom back in the east end, which is about a 30 minute car ride from Toronto or an hour via a solitary train ride on which I was blessed with the space needed to reflect. I was able to have a conversation with myself I hadn’t been able to have prior to that excursion because of responsibilities and my environment and things like that but yeah, I was able to gain some clarity on myself and have been reaping the benefits of that communication ever since. I wanted to document that. I wanted to show the viewer how many times I might talk to myself on any regular night within the span of 6 minutes.”
Both songs featured in the film are available on Leon’s 7-track playlist “LIFE GOES ON WITHOUT YOU”, released just a few weeks ago. Two of the other songs from the playlist, “GOLD” and “STEVE HARVEY/FAMILY FEUD”, were co-produced by renown Toronto producer Wondagurl, who has collaborated with Leon on several other tracks in the past.
Watching “TOOK A TRAIN TO FIND THE WORDS” makes it easy to see why Leon is one of Toronto’s most talented artists to make an emergence.
