Mississippi based emcee 7evenThirty, is one of the newest signees to independent label Mello Music Group joining a roster of artists like Oddisee, The Black Opera, yU and etc. The emcee who is set to release his upcoming concept album, Heaven’s Computer, is giving people a taste of what they can expect from the album in the form of his new single “Mysterious Business.”
For the song, 7evenThirty recruits Sleepy Will and Kamikaze for a song tackling the question of sustaining the realm of professional hip-hop.
Via the press release, 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.
