He wrote his first rhymes from the “Cool Like That” instrumental and looped his first beats from interludes on Pete Rock’s Main Ingredient. His wild and edgy stage persona was developed after his fascination with a young Busta Rhymes and the early Ol' Dirty Bastard. Since then 7evenThirty has worked diligently at developing his own sound, a sound he describes as “Hardcore Space Gangsa Music.” 7evenThirty has appeared on numerous notable independent projects that have made noise in both the Jackson, MS hip-hop scene and has launched his efforts worldwide, forming alliances with artists and producers from Southwest Jackson to Sweden. He has also appeared on various compilations including How’s My Rapping? (Double Platinum Entertainment- Jackson, MS 2003) and Rhyme Travelin’ (Soularp Records- Sweden 2010).
Since his crash landing onto the hip hop mega globe, he has also had the opportunity to open for more majorly known hip-hop acts such as Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Mobb Deep, Camp Lo, Pharoahe Monch, Brand Nubian, MC Supernatural, Homeboy Sandman, and T3 of Slum Village. 7even:Thirty has also worked in collaboration with producer 14KT (of Athletic Mic League) and favored rappers such as Hezekiah (Soulspazm records) and Headkrack & Bodega Brovaz (Rickey Smiley Morning Show/ The Cannabinoids) . Recently signed to Mello Music Group, 7evenThirty is preparing to release his MMG Debut, Heaven's Computer, was released on September 25, 2012. Read more on Last.fm.
