Old School And Modern Hip Hop Fusion From 7even's Hip Hop Album Release

7even was raised in Dallas, Texas. At a young age he was influenced by Hip Hop and started expressing himself through music. This passion for music was created from the pain the he endure as a child. It all led him to what he's become today with the help of artists' influences such as UGK, Scarface, Outcast, Tupac, Biggie, Public Enemy to Nas KRS to E-40 and Jay-Z. The bigger their influence the more he studied them. His belief is 'what doesn't kill you will make you stronger'.

7even, the artist began in 1993. He used to belong to a group called SAP. He used the word 007 which meant he was the James Bond of the ghetto. That name stuck and now everyone knows who 7even is.

7even is set to release his newest project titled "The Uprise of 7even". In this CD, 7even takes us on a journey from a humble beginning and tells the story of the rise to fame and fortune. Even though he shows the glamorous side, 7even never forgets his humble beginning keeping him grounded to his roots. He shows audiences his true self – no gimmicks – no fiction. "I think it's important to show the listeners your true self. As for me, I have always been a character and everyone that knows me knows that. I can turn any situation into a good one", states 7even.

The lead single off of this CD is titled "Hey Girl". This phrase is a comfortable way of getting the girl's attention without showing disrespect. The stage is set in Miami Beach. All of the women are walking with their sexy swagger while 7even sits in a lounge area having a drink. He watches and begins to really notice how good they look. He shouts out, "Hey, girl. You need to holla at me with your fine self". This song is a fun upbeat and sexy with a cool mix of singing and rapping. The rhythm is hot, vocals are outstanding. It's a great hip hop song. This is the way it's done. All the songs flow beautifully including the contents of the CD with "Hey Girl" being the first track.

7even is always looking to better himself. He looks at idols such as Michael Jackson to help him stay on track, stay focused and driven. He evolves both personally and professionally. He will take a song and make three variations of it for different audiences. He is also keeping up with new technology along with standing by the true and trusted ways. He is a consummate professional and a force to reckon with. He's always testing his own boundaries in production, editing, mixing, recording and delivery securing his place in hip hop history.

Reggae Artist KC Jockey Is Looking For "A Better Jamaica" With New, Free Downloadable Tribute

Karl-Marx Waite of Sweet Sadie's Records announced the release of KC Jockey's new track, "A Better Jamaica." The track is a tribute to the artist's homeland, and one that he hopes will be an anthem for better days ahead. "A Better Jamaica" can be downloaded from KC Jockey's website free of charge, as it is his present to the people of Jamaica and all who love the beautiful country.

According to the CIA World Facebook, "Jamaica is currently plagued with high crime rates and corruption, large scale unemployment and under employment, and the 4th highest debt burden per capita in the world." Other sources state that, "The total life expectancy for Jamaicans has been declining since at least 2004, at which time it was 76. The rate of violence is particularly high in Kingston, and spreading to other areas. That issue is beginning to affect tourism, which accounts for one fifth of Jamaica's GDP with $4 billion/year in revenues." And with the upcoming election, the situation may become even worse.

KC Jockey's "A Better Jamaica" is a promotional track and a smooth groove of a song that has depth and meaning. This song will be added to the artist's album, which will be released soon and include an uplifting new version of the previous "Waiting In Vain" track that was loved and done by: Bob Marley The mid-tempo reggae single is infused with a just a hint of R&B and soul, and bursting with the hope for a new day in KC Jockey's much loved homeland of Jamaica,one without violence, poverty, and hunger. "A Better Jamaica" is a very likeable song which fulfills its purpose of fueling oneness, peace, and love for and between all Jamaicans. KC Jockey has a wonderful voice that greatly accentuates the message of "A Better Jamaica," which is both musically and lyrically strong. The artist seems to be very much driven by causes near and dear to his heart, as his release prior to this one, "Girl, You're Free," addressed domestic violence. "Girl, You're Free," released on August 27th, has been #1 on WXAC 91.3's Urban Charts for a total of 8 weeks, and is still enjoying rotation on other stations. The video will be shot in Atlanta for the new year.

KC Jockey attributes the success of his music to his unique style of combining Pop,R&B,Hip-Hop, and reggae with topics that will have meaning and relevance for a lifetime. "The music I make is timeless and significant, and it's for all ages to listen to. It's deep, and when you have a good sound and a good message, people are drawn to it. Jamaica is my homeland. It's a beautiful place where people from other countries come to relax and enjoy the exquisiteness of it in every sense. It's time now for Jamaicans to be able to embrace each other as the brothers and sisters that we are, and enjoy the country for ourselves, without fear, pain, or violence. We, as a people, will overcome our present circumstances, and we will be better for it in the end. That is the Jamaica that I know and love."
