Jackson, Mississippi is not immediately known for producing MC’s influenced by Wu Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest and Digable Planets as well as who navigate concepts about alternate worlds and time travel yet one emcee is changing that. 7evenThirty is too raw for this planet.
Whether this is your introduction to 7evenThirty or you’ve heard his past underground material, pinpointing this alien’s origin is no easy task. “GetUp!!!” finds this microphone extra-terrestrial standing out amongst the regular degular everyday life. Ruthless rhymes mixed with “time-travel and zappin’ n****s” is a particularly curious formula that requires a particularly eccentric mind to pull off right. 7even takes us from the funkiest corners of the South to the illest galaxies in space. Swedish beat wizard Erik L crafts a spacey, thumping electronic bass line that serves as 7even’s launching pad.
Though at any moment he can beam up in the mother ship, it seems 7evenThirty is confined to our planet for the time being. The official arrival, Heaven’s Computer, crash lands on September 25th via Mello Music Group.
