THE OGWANNYSEVEN INTERVIEW
What’s your story?
Well I’m OgWannyseven also know as AkWannySeven. I’m a multi sub genre rapper from North Philly. Anything besides that you can find everything else in my music!
What does the local music community mean to you?
It’s heavy! I fucks with what’s it’s coming to a lot, different styles and personalities really makes it sturdy to be apart of!
Who are some of your biggest inspirations, both locally and mainstream?
Locally I would have to say Leaf Ward! I respect that guy as a artist highly. He definitely puts me in my bag heavy. And man stream would be Dave East, he really makes thurl music. It’s something that makes you have your mind rolling. To be honest both of them have songs I can really smoke and chill to!
What’s one thing about you that you think is misunderstood? What do people not know about you, or one thing you want people to know?
To be real, I don’t care what people misunderstand about me. I’ll just let them be! But everyone should know that I make music for every type of rap fan, so when y’all tune in just remember I got every style in the bag!
Tell us about your most recently dropped project, or an upcoming project.
I was supposed to drop “TheBlackTapeVol.1” (sorry folks!) but I’m holding that for the winter. But you guys can still tune in to my latest song “FACE”! Sept. 1st I’m dropping my new single “ CLOSE RANGE JUNKY” so stay tune for some soulful shit! Y’all have to wait for anything after that! Just know it’s going to be a cold winter!
Are there any artists you enjoy collaborating with the most? Are there any artists, local or mainstream, that you would love to collab with?
I got a couple local folks I wanna work with, like Ben Alpha, Lil Blanco, Scuba Ty, Aye Kwon and my sis Linduh. And that’s all I can think of off the top of my head right now. And mainstream it’s really a few but Andre 3000, Earl, Vince staples, UGLYFRANK and Tyler tha creator. Niggas really be fake as fuck and trash!
What has been your favorite project you’ve released so far, or the one you’re most proud of?
None I want to elevate passed what I’m making right now! I’ll like a song for like 3 days and after that it’s trash to me. I wish I can scratch everything I dropped! All my fav shit hasn’t dropped or might not ever drop.
Who else in our community do you think is Next Up?
It’s a couple to be honest but imma say that guy jah Starr is doing his thing! He getting the following and the movement something Heavy! Also my guy Benny Honna, if you don’t know now you know my guy is something different!
What’s next for you?
