Despite humble beginnings, Sainté’s rise coincides with a huge cultural moment for the city of Leicester (and his beloved, FA-cup-winning team). The young rapper has also already made his own waves outside of music, appearing in campaigns from the likes of Louis Vuitton or Billionaire Boys Club.
With records as boisterous and charismatic as they are candidly introspective, Sainté has learned fast both as an artist, and a young man, on who he is and what he wants. “I am taking my time to tell a three-dimensional story and show you all angles,” he concludes. “I guess the music before was more paranoid, because I grew up close to that kind of lifestyle. Now, I want to take people into a place where they can learn how to enjoy life as [the pandemic has shown] it’s so short.” He smirks, before adding – tongue firmly in cheek – “I’m trying to be a sweet boy. I’m not interested in people thinking I am tough, because I am only trying to be Saintly.” In time, you suspect he won’t be the only one just trying to be Sainté.
