Texas native 7098 has been creating music for the last 7 years, finally transitioning his childhood interest into a full-blown passion. Primarily a Hip-hop and RNB artist with hints of other subgenera here and there, 7098 owns his distinct persona and sound — proudly inspired by life itself, and anything music-related. The moment he realized how much magic music creates was at a “Nothing Was The Same” Drake concert, noticing how euphoric the experience was to see fans so engaged and live music in action. Writing has also always been apart of 7098’s life, so his transition into the mindset of an artist was natural from the multitude of inspirations.
Ready to showcase his work, his first debut single called “Regroup” was released in 2016. He took a few years to find his sound and build up other skills, eventually releasing his first EP called Bk 4rm The City in 2019. He followed up with another full-bodied project titled Until Next Time in 2021, and shortly after, dropped his single “Dyin 4 U” in January of 2022. As 7098 prepares to launch his EP 4AM In Houston, he is excited for supporters and newcomers to hear the honest and poetic passion he has for his art.
