PHS: Can you give us a little preview of your career & things you currently up to?
I'll J: I am the President and CEO of the OFW Family Club, a Non Government Organization helping distressed OFWs and families. The OFW Family Club is also an accredited Party List where I sit as President and my Dad, Roy V. Seneres Sr sits as Congressman representing OFWs and families in Congress. My job is to spearhead the help for distressed OFWs through welfare and legal assistance and to assist our Congressman in crafting legislation for the protection of OFWs and families.
I am 100% focused on my job/calling as head of the OFW Family Club and I am also focused being a husband to my wonderful wife Monique and a Father to two amazing kids, Kiana and Brandon.
PHS: your best contribution to the hiphop community?
I'll J: My best contribution/s to the hip hop community are SVC albums, self titled, Reality Check A New Beginning, Its All Natural, and my two solo albums namely The Journey and Logic For Reason.
PHS: any plans of coming back? or other future hiphop related project?
I'll J: I do dream of coming back but my time in meeting and helping distressed OFWs eats up most if my time for now. I still want to improve on my work and be the best I can be at it. If I feel I reached that point, then maybe I can shift my focus back to music. But until then, my calling leads me to this current path that I'm in.
PHS: your opinion on the current state of local hiphop?
I'll J: The current state of hip hop is strong evidenced by Flip Top, Urban Pinas Radio, Pinoy Hip Hop Superstar and similar pages in FB and different Social Media sites, endless talent, endless music. I am a fan of a bunch of guys like Gloc 9, Bambu, Uprising, Flip Top Battle MCs, Loonie, just to name a few.
