eddy727 "Lil Lit EP"


Whether you’re riding around town or at home getting ready to step out, Boston’s eddy727’s latest EP, Lil Lit, will be sure to send out those good vibes. His recent project carries a wavy sound with influences from Rich The Kid, Pierre Bourne and Smokepurrp.

Experimenting with hip hop since he was a li’l one, eddy727 is no stranger to music. He started out using GarageBand, ProTools and eventually worked his way up to house studios. Although the Lil Lit EP has a consistent theme throughout, eddy727 isn’t afraid to venture out to some different styles of hip hop music. It sounds this is only the beginning for this young artist.

I had the pleasure of reaching out to eddy727 and here is his message to Boston:
“It’s time for us to start supporting everyone. Everyone can be the face of our city. Not just one person. Let’s build this city and show the world all the talent we have. Shout out 727 the family!”

I couldn’t agree more.

Interview: Heath240 + Single: "LA"


MassHipHop is proud to introduce the talented Boston-based artist, Heath240. I had the pleasure of reaching out to this young artist to find out a little about his background, musical influences and upcoming album, The Hometown Hero. Here's what Heath240 had to say:

1. What made you decide to want to create music and who were your early influences? 

Music has been around me my whole life. My parents introduced me to hip-hop at a young age, along with R&B and Funk. Musicians have always had this magical quality to them that made them able to connect themselves to their listeners. I guess I wanted to be able to connect to others the same way some of my favorite artists connected to me. My early music influences would have to be Rick James, Panic! at the Disco, Kanye West, Andre 3000, and more recently, Chance The Rapper. Each one of them contributed to my current sound and songwriting style.

2. How would you describe your style of music?

My music is unique because it is true to myself. I am a funny and silly person, but I can also discuss serious topics. Using unorthodox flow patterns with my unique voice leads to a very different sound. Songs I make always have little quirks in them because I feel like those imperfections are what make my music authentic to me. I don’t really know how to describe my sound but once my mixtape drops I think listeners will understand what I mean.

3. What should people expect to hear from your upcoming project?

With my upcoming project The Hometown Hero, I think listeners should expect a mixed bag of serious and fun topics. I tried to make this mixtape as personal as possible! I feel that I am a happy-go-lucky person but still, I contemplate on deeper issues in my personal life and society. So there will be songs that touch on a lot of topics that I hold dear to me, such as heartbreak, gentrification and many more. On this project, I worked with my friends in Collctiv5, and got a lot of help from Dutch Rebelle. I also had the opportunity to get features from Michael Christmas and Supa Bwe, which are two of my favorite artists!

4. Out of all the collaborations you’ve done, which is the most memorable?

The most memorable feature experience so far would have to be flying out to Chicago to work with Supa Bwe. That was my first time in the Midwest and the first time that I traveled to make music! With that experience, I was able to learn a lot and make a few great friends. Most importantly, we have a fire song that will be coming out in the near future!

5. What artists in today’s game do you hope to work with someday?

I hope to work with Mura Masa, Kanye, Chance The Rapper, and Andre 3000 someday. All of those artists I immensely look up to and would die to be on a track with! But for now, that's a long way off, but it is always good to have dreams, right?


Heath240's new mixtape will be coming out in the near future but until then check out his single, L.A.
