7evenThirty – Mysterious Business
Ft. Sleepy Will & Kamikaze
Surviving in hip-hop is easy, you have skills and you have beats, the rest falls into place, right? If only it were so simple. Mississippi firebrand 7evenThirty takes a break from demolishing civilizations to shed light on the harsh climate of rap music on a leak from his upcoming concept album, Heaven’s Computer.
“Mysterious Business” tackles the question of sustaining within the realm of professional hip-hop. Erik L’s beat is an ominous, brooding arrangement that could be equally at home as the soundtrack to a 80’s video game dungeon level. 7even appears as a weary rhymer, jaded and disenchanted by the ups and downs of the indie grind, he closes his verse with the poignant question: “would you do this shit for free?” Partners Sleepy Will and Kamikaze (some folks may know Kamikaze as 1/2 of the Jackson bred duo Crooked Lettaz) both hit it out the park. Detailing the plight of the independent artist and underscoring how all MC’s are selling something, the two MC’s spit convincing bars without coming off bitter.
"I'm Posdonous with a pistol, you rappers get plugged / One"
Whether bombing tracks or imploding planets, 7evenThirty goes hard with brutal honesty. Heaven’s Computer arrives 9/25 via Mello Music Group.
