Big L let us know more than a decade ago that “if you 7:30, that means you crazy” and Jackson, Mississippi native Marques Phillips aka 7evenThirty can definitely be described as such. The youthful fireball injects eccentricity into every bar, combining the down-home wisdom of his region with a deranged style not born on this planet. Simply put, 7evenThirty is a bold new artist with an old-school soul.
Mello Music Group is ecstatic to announce 7evenThirty as the newest addition to its roster. The Tasmanian devil of rhyme will be working on a collaborative album with The Imperial Gensu Dean but prior to that he’ll be dropping the concept album Heaven’s Computer on September 25th. Creative and innovative, 7even continues MMG’s legacy of forward thinking hip-hop music that never loses its connections to the roots of the culture.
The new album Heaven’s Computer is coming 9.25.12
While 7even’s conceptual concoction finishes brewing, dig into Late Night Sessions, a collection of recordings from 7even’s early days that we are offering for free. The project features original songs as well as traditional mixtape ‘freestyles’ over other’s beats. For the uninitiated, this is the perfect introduction into the deranged, introspective, but above all, dope world of 7evenThirty. You’ll be hearing much more of this young firebrand soon, so don’t sleep.
