Asylum 7 in the Metro Times:
Primordial ooze: Asylum 7 got his start making music on the infamous Runyon Avenue on Detroit’s east side. His blue-collar style of hip-hop is rooted in fact, not fiction, and this dude is one of the most socially aware MC’s in the area right now.
Why you should really care: “Because the music is honest, yo! It’s not your typical radio and club shit. My music isn’t vain, and it’s not fabricated either. It’s the epitome of honest music created from the soul. Good lyricism without the profanity and misogynistic nonsense.”
The single: His recently released EP, Brown Study, doesn’t have a lead single, and that’s exactly the way he wants it. According to A7, he wants the whole product to stand out as one musical offering to the world. “As long as every song is just as positive as the next one, it’s all good.”
Peer-to-peer: Rocks well with the Subterraneous Crew, Elzhi, S.U.N., Metasyons, Selfsays and Leaf Erikson.
What’s next: Still working on a yet-to-be-titled full-length album of new material. Continues to promote the hell out of Brown Study.
