777 Records™ a music and entertainment company from Atlanta, Georgia - Wait, or maybe it's Peruvian? Well to be honest little was known about 777 [Triple Seven] Records. Their web presence is most certainly ethereal and up until now have we received an abundance of new music. Originally just a soundcloud page, featuring a single artist hinting, that this artist named BIGMAN aka GOLDBOY may be the sole proprietor of this production. None the less the album currently been distributing on their bandcamp is set at a price of $777, for a physical release, & $7.77 for the digital copy. Some of the rarest of the rare things at that can be found on the internet as of late. It's a fun listen, tracks like this;
BIGMAN's track "SHYNE" featured on "P.T." a blown out bass heavy trap breakdown into thuggin'. Positive Thuggin' is an example of a project gone right. Beyond the surface there is a lot of heart here. I hear it in a lot of the lyrics. "Shyne like the sun" could be taken as an introduction in current time from a some theoretical PC counter culturist conflated fantasy for a pozy outlook on the cold dark atmosphere of a hood, potentially, and also a explaining the definition of the terminology for anyone reading, and unaware of why some people call each other son or daughter
Back in December of 2014, BIGMAN was on his second release "OFF THE MEAT RACK", which does feature a track that stuck out the most when I came across it, based on claiming you're the newest iteration of the "legend" Basquiat. Somehow inspirited by the individual is comes across as in some ways incredibly advantages. In the end it's all about execution. That is what the #24KGOLDBOY does well, executes tracks effortlessly.
Although my point is however many ways I may have heard the thematics, it's the first time an artist made a "based" parody about being the old head #NYC artist I've been receptive to. May that be, because 777 is very much from #ATL, yet have the same conflated identifiers with the "Ignorant art" style it's a sign of our times, the identifying of creativity, strength and self realization of an icon (many of us unfortunately did not get the opportunity to meet - instilled within some of the youth. The Artist/Rapper GOLDBOY hailing from Atlanta, Georgia has produced 5 works in total and is currently working on his 6th, stay tuned to the NVRBLOG™ for updates on any new releases on 777 Records or new on BIGMAN.
