What inspired/the meaning behind your artist name?
My actually name, it’s McGraw but I just replaced the G with a 7 because it’s my lucky number, I know that probably common but when I was young, shy and chubby I had a black hoody with a number 7 on it that was kind of like my portable comfort zone.
Where does your musical inspiration come from?
I draw my inspiration from so many styles, I grew up listening to prince heavy and my favorite rappers were OutKast. Kanye and The Neptunes were my favorite producers. I’m also inspired but my friends and family as well their belief in me is what keeps me passionate
Who is your biggest motivation?
My mother, I’ve always had dreams of me achieving something big, and one day, I’m putting her in her dream house.
