7 Aurelius, ‘Sev’ as his good friends call him, is no stranger to making music. He came up through Rap-A-Lot Records where he layed down thick beats for gangsta rappers in Houston, Texas. He considers his time there as a “boot camp” of sorts because it was there he learned the ropes and was taught the game. Although nothing spectacular was ever released, it was still vital experiences that helped shape, train and prepare him for the next level.
In 2001, Seven’s life would change forever after a chance meeting with Murder Inc. label head, Irv Gotti. He met Gotti at a party and began connecting with some ideas. Seven would move to NY to work with Murder Inc. and ultimately be catapulted to the big leagues. Under Gotti’s wing Sevev began banging out tracks for Ashanti’s “Always on Time” and “Foolish” then he laid down the music for J-Lo and Ja Rule’s “I’m Real.” Those tracks would earn him a name in the industry as a hot major player and sought after producer.
Since then Seven has earned the title as ‘The King Of Divas,’ and has worked with some of the biggest names in R&B, from Janet Jackson to J-Lo and Alicia Keys to Ashanti he has helped shape their material into pop music masterpieces. His secret behind his tracks he says, “you just gotta stir it up. You definitely gotta stir it up sometimes just to get it poppin.’ I custom fit the tracks to fit the artist, I want my sound to be unpredictable and I want it to form fit the artist. Ultimately, I’m just the stage and there the star, they shine. I just want to be the best stage for them, to showcase them and make them look their best.”
