7xvethegenius & DJ Green Lantern Release Collaborative Project ‘The Genius Tape’

7xvethegenius & DJ Green Lantern - The Genius Tape (LP)

7xvethegenius and DJ Green Lantern drop off “The Genius Tape” album.

When she appeared on Conway The Machine’s “Crack In The Ninety’s” from his From King To A GOD Deluxe project, it served for many as a formal introduction to the lyrical dynamo and multi-faceted artist known as 7xvethegenius.  The intrigue was furthered when Conway brought her out to perform on Tidal’s exclusive Griselda Holiday Concert. 

Now that the rising emcee has your attention, and before she releases her Drumwork Records debut this summer, 7xvethegenius joins forces with DJ Green Lantern and puts her talents as an artist and storyteller on full-display with their new collaborative drop The Genius Tape.

Born in Buffalo, NY’s Eastside (she also has a deep connection with Atlanta’s music scene, as she spent most of her young adult life in the area before relocating to Buffalo in 2018) 7xve is now an integral component of Conway’s Drumwork Records imprint; and her buzz only continues to intensify.  Over the last year, 7xve has released a well-received EP (Self 7Xve 2), linked up with frequent collaborator Che Noir for “Ladies Brunch” (which also featured Armani Caesar) and “Veracruz” from Che’s recently released Noir Or Never, released an “On The Radar” Freestyle Single and linked with her Drumwork squad for standout performances on Conway & Jae Skeese’s Pain Provided Profit (“Food”) and most recently the title track for Conway’s Won’t He Do It album. 

“My relationship with Conway is dope and I’ve known him for what feels like forever now.  Some of the people he talks about in his songs are my relatives.  I started recording at DJ Shay’s (RIP!) studio and Conway and Benny were already working there” 7xve recalls.  Being signed to one of the greatest rappers of all time, I’ve been able to learn a lot and it’s pushed my pen to even greater heights” 7xve asserts.

7xve’s ascension has also spurred quite a bit of social media conversation about her artist name and how to pronounce it; for the record, it’s pronounced Love The Genius. “I encourage everyone to research and get into the meaning of the number 7.  The x is really there because I didn’t like how the o looked next to the 7 aesthetically” she laughed.  “The meaning of “7” and the definition of what love is, is everything I try to represent in my music and life.” 

Produced in its entirety by DJ Green Lantern, The Genius Tape, showcases 7xve’s elite lyricism, and the duo’s combined creativity and conceptualization.  The Genius Tape features appearances from Conway The Machine, Rome Streetz, Che Noir, AA Rashid & TF.
