Hi 7venmind, thanks for the privilege of this interview.
Let’s start off by introducing yourself, you know the basics like name, age, where you’re from. As much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.
I’m Haytam Nazih aka 7venmind a rapper based out of Morroco in City Ifran. I’ve got introduced to music since 2011 and it’s been like a drug to me since then. and I started making my own music at the age of 16 years up to date.
What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?
i‘ve received a lot of good advices over the years and I think the best advice given to me is to be unique and be creative and I find a lot of new artists who write and produce their music in a way where they replicate it over and over. I think artists should keep experimenting and evolving in music.
What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?
I was a little reserved listening to people’s opinion. If I would go back I’d push myself more and set a system, believe in myself and make connections with people that are just as passionate as muse.
What is still your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge now is as I mentioned I want to build my own studio and buy equipments but I’m still a student in college and I’m trying to balance between music and studying.
What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?
When things get tough in the industry what keeps me going is when I see other artists and fans and friends let me know how they like my work and that they believe in me and vibe to my music that keeps me up and brighten my mood and it pushes me to even work harder.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
There are many amazing artists that I would love to perform with or open up for but to be honest I am huge fan of Post Malone his shows are crazy.
Talk me through your creative process.
So my creative process can differ a lot based on how I’m feeling what I’m thinking of, sometimes I have a specific idea or a subject that I want to talk about in the song.
How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?
Productivity and scheduling isn’t a big issue for me because I love music and I really enjoy putting my time and efforts in it but when time get a bit overwhelming I tend to take a pause and reorganize my thoughts to get incouraged again.
What are you focusing your time on now?
Right now I’m focusing my time on developing my studio equipment and building my own carrier and I am releasing a new EP.
How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?
Currently I feel about the state of my music genre it’s evolving and I’m being more creative I’ve had a shift where I’m blending trap and R&B.

Chicago Underground Hip Hop Artist HARI is Handcrafting his Music Career
We recently met up with Hip Hop artist HARI for an interview, and he had a lot to say about the industry.
The Chicago-based underground hip-hop artist who goes by the name of HARI has been surrounded by music since he was a young child. He knew he was destined to make a name for himself since he started making music. For HARI, he is encouraging his audiences to listen and become better people overall and gradually become the best version of themself. His new album, The Art of Poetry, is currently in the works and set for release this summer. Music is everything to HARI as it represents his emotions, dreams, and greatest aspirations.
- Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
HARI: Music & poetry has always been something I’ve loved since I was a kid, It played a significant role in what I do now. I would just get to writing poetry and I wouldn’t realize it, rhyming in my head but I always had a speech problem that made me not want to speak.
- Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?
HARI: My most interesting story would have to be when a label was trying to sign me and told me details over the phone but the contract said something completely different I just laughed and threw it away.
- Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you first started? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
HARI: My breathing, when I first started rapping I would always try to rap my whole verse in one breath! Big mistake obviously and one I learn quickly.
- What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?
HARI: My next project “FREE” is my main focus right now and I won’t hesitate when it’s ready it will be announced and dropped I got so many fans over the past years that I can’t stop now.
- Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?
HARI: I’ve interacted with some of the best producers & artists in the game. Conductor Williams, lojii, 6LACK even though that was through a friend of his.
- Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
HARI: I would say keep it real and original people looking and listening out for new sounds main reason I believe I’m going up.
- You have been blessed with success in a career path that can be challenging. Do you have any words of advice for others who may want to embark on this career path, but seem daunted by the prospect of failure?
HARI: My word of advice is. Invest in yourself and make time to be able to do what you want! These jobs don’t want to do anything but hold you down until you a certain age. You take the checks and start building something of your own then you can eventually leave and pursue your own dreams.
- Can you share with our readers any self-care routines, practices, or treatments that you do to help your body, mind, or heart to thrive? Kindly share a story or an example for each.
HARI: I always clear my mind before leaving the house things change and people do too and some people can’t handle that so I would say clearing out your head, deep breathing if you ever feel like you need to hurt somebody or yourself just count to 100 calmly and a suicide hotline is also helpful but people underestimate therapy which I think a lot of people don’t realize they need including myself but I’ve gotten it because I know I do for my own reasons.
- What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why? Please share a story or example for each.
HARI: 5 things I wish someone had told me…
- How to market yourself to an upcoming artist.
- How to work these complicated studio programs like FL studios
- I think that’s about it.
- Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?
HARI: “Don’t stress about things you can’t control” that’s something I’ve learned to do because I’ve been in situations where I really could not do anything about it but overthink and stress about it so that really helped me.
- None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?
HARI: I do have some guys in my circle I definitely can’t do it without and their support the whole BOG and my family.
- You are a person of enormous influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
HARI: With my influence. I want people to be more honest with each other and bring together a group of people who are divided in this world with the music I hope to actually get a chance to change the world for the better but those details are for another time.
- We are blessed that some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US with whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂
HARI: I definitely want to meet some of my favorite rappers in the game like Jay-Z, Kanye, Kendrick, and some of my favorite authors and actors.
