New York, New York (PressExposure) March 08, 2012 -- 7Even's new video "The Uprise," is an promo video which is a real teaser as he gives you just enough to make you want more. The small dose you get has a very big on impact, and this is a strong sound coming straight out of New York. "The Uprise" begins with the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. proclaiming that "I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history..." and goes directly into scenes of 7Even coming out of the subway at forty deuce followed by scenes of Times Square and the core of Manhattan, followed by a quick pic of 7Even spitting his rhymes. This is followed by a black background in which logos with the following words appear as "The Uprise" plays in the background: "The Uprise...7Even...EP Release...The Dream...G Code...Let Freedom Ring..." As all of this is going on, samples from each song on the EP play, giving the viewer/listener an opportunity to hear the grooves that are available. This CD has "flavor for everybody from the swagger smooth to the street raw."
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 endured 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 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.
