Jackson, Mississippi’s Dojo Seven is intelligent, charismatic and on the come up. He has spent his whole life in flux between high peaks and desperate valleys and his music expresses this merger. Formal educational training, urban sensibilities, and life experiences with both middle class wealth’ and desolate poverty allow his music to be concurrently young in spirit and old in wisdom. Produced by Heat Up Beats, the track “O’My God” from Dojo Seven’s debut Dojo Seven’s Hookah Smoke was dropped as a duel single along with “Cream“.
Dojo’s intelligent, but he’s by no means an academician. He’s charismatic, but too rebellious for politics. His music expresses the dichotomy of formal educational training and urban (aka “hood”) southern sensibilities. It’s concurrently young in spirit and old and wisdom.
