Coming off of his last project, “The Go Ape EP” Seven J has turned the energy all the way up with his latest mixtape release, “Down Bottom.” Widely known for his high energy, infectious ad-libs, and bar-heavy wordplay, Seven J reports the harsh realities of his personal life Down Bottom, also known as Jacksonville, Florida where he resides. His music is so vivid and aggressive at times you may over look his blatant love and declaration of the gospel! This joint has so much flavor and heart felt lyrics anyone can easily get sucked into this action packed project.
Seven J talks about the juxtaposition between the allure of the streets and the tough outcomes that come with it in his song “From That”:
“I’m from where they bang bro/ and they quick to let them thangs go/
suicide range rov’s/ chains glow chains low like Django/
that’s why I let that gospel rain on’em/ I stay the same never change on’em/
Randy servin’ 20 found them thangs on’em/ judge Blake Griffin on the court and let it BANG on’em/“
But it don’t stop there…as most who aren’t familiar with the street life may hesitate to go further, Seven J continues to wow the audience with
dense theology with lyrics like:
“truly man yet truly Godly/
I AM that I AM in a human body/
had no form of beauty that we’d turn and look/
crazy Mary’s baby spoke to Moses through a burning bush/“
Conscience Hip Hop recently got to sit down with the artist and hear his heart behind this musical masterpiece.
Check out this Exclusive Interview with Seven J:
For me personally some of the smash hits on this project are Holy Key, Direct Deposit, Snooze Button, and Dear Mr. Seven. As you all know I don’t let anything come across my blog-site that I don’t fully endorse…I mean what I say and ‘on my momma’ this project will go among the many classics I hold to dearly. It’s music like this that is a testimony to how great our God is. He saves folks from every tongue and every tribe! And he conforms their hearts to the image of Christ. Don’t forget it people, if you do- lend your ears to a cat from, “Down Bottom.”
