Trying to find your way into an industry which contains a slew of politics and gimmicks can be hard to suffice when your only mission is to be heard. While some artists who find success today through the many outlets we have now, it’s a blessing if their fame can last longer than fifteen minutes. But, for the gems of the underground who are impatient, yet filled with hope, the music will speak for itself in the long run rather than being the artist who went viral for a short period. 7uca currently stands as one of those gems and it may not take long for success to come his way. The continuous build towards his craft displays the potential of making a name for himself in Hip-Hop; possibly standing at a much higher level. His latest body of work, ‘Pink City, Motel‘, speaks volumes in support of that.
The follow-up to his My Most Violent Year EP back in February, 7uca goes a much different route with his full-length release but pieces of his previous project are felt within the 16-track LP. The album, inspired by Andre 3000’s The Love Below, paints the picture of an imperfect love story between two friends surrounded by uncertainty and pain. And as you listen, it’s almost as if you’re watching a film with the skits and cohesiveness as it’s actually portrayed to be the soundtrack to a screenplay developed by 7uca. Interesting, right? Backed with production from in-house producer JonyB and BraveStarr, the project stands as the perfect score to your late night/early morning cruise. As for 7uca, Pink City, Motel embodies his versatility as an artist and his growth musically alongside JonyB expands the thought of how lethal those two can be moving forward. I guess we can only wait and see what happens in the future, but for now, don’t let good music fall on deaf ears. The fifteen minutes of fame guys are cool, but it’s time to let the gems of the underground shine.
