Osaka-based rapper INNOCENSE produced with young Fukuoka beatmaker TACMA.
In 2013, INNOCENSE met a photographer in a dormitory where he stayed during his solo trip to NY. The two hit it off and went to see The Roots LIVE and art at HIGH LINE, and spent many nights drinking Brooklyn Beer. Unfortunately, he passed away last year.
Rain Dance" is a song about overcoming the death of his benefactor and the difficulties that befell his life through hiphop.

Rain sometimes hides the sadness and tears one feels, and just as the air is clear and the sky clears after a squall in New York City, this song is about washing away the pain and difficulties that arise in life. The best days come after the worst days, so we can't stop. You can't give up yet. I won't fall down yet. A future to hold on to. This song is a powerful pledge to overcome the obstacles, along with a love for hiphop and a promise to fulfill it.
