It takes an inventive and creative mind to stand out as an MC in today’s crowded climate. 7evenThirty has a sound and style unlike any other. The Jackson, Mississippi native has spent years grinding, finding his sound for the album Heaven’s Computer - a concept LP that has been taking hip hop heads on a ride ever since it was released last month. 7evenThirty’s space age gangster narratives take the run of the mill gangster persona and complicates then deepens it by examining it in the context of other planets and space travel.

KON Sci of MindsOne presents the first single, "Dire Straits", off his upcoming winter release on Soulspazm Records titled "And Beyond". Following the critically acclaimed release of "Self Reliance" with his North Carolina based crew MindsOne, KON Sci of Washington DC ventures into the solo realm with a gritty boom bap self produced song "Dire Straits". The single pays homage and respect to the forefathers who deeply influenced him. KON Sci credits the Gang Starr Foundation with much attention to respective artists DJ Premier, Guru, M.O.P, Jeru The Damaja, and Group Home, as a driving force behind his involvement in beatmaking and MCing. "Dire Straits" presents a mood that served as the catalyst for KON Sci's undying passion for the Hip Hop culture in the mid 1990s to the present day. To cap off the force of "Dire Straits", KON Sci and Soulspazm have released the video for the single as well. Stay tuned for the release of "And Beyond" on Soulspazm Records this winter.*
