Nick & Seven the General first worked together as a writer/producer team in 2010 on K'Jon Present's Nick Speed & the Detroit Connect. Later that year "Seven the General" was named one of 11 "Hottest Local Talent" by WJLB for his Nick Speed produced "I Get It In" feat. K'Jon released on Seven's "the Sanctum Sanctorum" LP.

In early 2013 Nick Speed produced "A.R.T the DIA project" for legendary Detroit emcee "Seven the General. The album would go on to be nominated for a Detroit Music Award "Outstanding Electronic/Dance Recording" based on the track "Knowhere". Entirely produced by Nick Speed "A.R.T. the DIA project" also features the songs "Show Up" & "Detroit City Blues" by Seven the General featuring Guilty Simpson & Bizarre that became the official promotional anthem for "The Detroit Design Festival" held annually in Detroit. Seven the General would go on to win the Detroit Music Award for "Outstanding Rap Recording" in 2016.

In August 2014 Seven the General & Nick Speed released "A.R.T. the DIA project" Documentary.

The Detroit Underground hip-hop awards in 2015 presented the two with "Best Full Length Project" for the "A.R.T. the DIA project" LP. Subsequently In October 2016 Nick Speed & Seven the General were added to the Detroit Institute of Arts permanent archive. The museum purchased the photograph shot by Jenny Risher as representation of the Detroit Hip Hop as art which was the goal set by Seven & Nick.

Track Name: iWitness
[Intro]

In the middle of a visit on my pivot
To distribute narcotics, amphetamines and Literature through the system
Tell the Victim, the Counselor, Judge and staff & Eyewitness
They will NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT iWitnessed.. Huhn…

They will NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT iWitnessed ….Huhhhhnn
They will NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT iWitnessed ….huhhhhnn
They will NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT iWitnessed ….huhhhhnn

[Verse]

This for, Level IV, Fourth Floor, No Gallery
I-Block shit, Assault on staff with "D" Batteries.. huh
They stalk the Sally Port for suckaz or some Beef from off the streets
Hope I ain't robbed none of you busters…(niggaaa)

But if I did I got a weapon, grab my shit from off the yard
Lets put these niggas on protection…. (niggaaaa)……


You KNOW MY GANG! WESTSIDE S.M.D. fuck all C.O.s thats at the desk
They S.T.G.'d me 96' and sent my dogg to U.R.F. ...(uhnnnn)
I'm on the Yard at M.C.F. I hear my rival done just left
I shoot a Kite and get him Stretched…. (niggaaaa)

And while he heat them ramen noodles have my dudes get at his neck…. (niggaaa)

You feel MY Pain?…
You feel MY Pain?

[Verse 2]

I think these bars is talking to me
Think the Moors and the Melanic's want to DO me
Just cause I'm a noobie

Just seen a nigga get his head bussed, pushed off the tier
He disappeared nobody said NOTHING…

Wouldn't say it if it wasn't, when my pops died them bitches let me SUFFER
Wouldn't even let me touch him… so FUCKING RIGHT, its MUTHAFUCK em
I caused a riot in the card room Sergeant said i stuck him (nigggaaaa)

Cook the spud inside my cell, my bunkie's number Old as Hell
He seen the Board in some Cazal's
I'm YSL'n on a visit switch the frames out with my brother then come back with Buffie lenses (niggaa)

Just caught another D.D.O. cause I keep on sending niggas to the sto'
They paying what the owe..
Shout out my niggas on the ROW and niggas doing life with no Parole..


This is Chow Hall Music, kind of shit you set a riot off to it
Contraband through it, niggas set fire to the unit
Tell the warden 64's not Moving, they better bring the shields
Lieutenant and some pills, My Cellie saying chill
But ima get it how i live… (niggaaa)

I went to Prison as a Kid fuck the Belly I was raised inside the Ribs
We upstate we near the bridge a Snow Birds ride away from our Crib…. (Niggaaa)

Track Name: Gwap Talk
[Chorus]

Bananeira não sei
Bananeira será
Bananeira sei não
A maneira de ver

Bananeira não sei
Bananeira será
Bananeira sei não
Isso é lá com você

Será no fundo do quintal
Quintal do seu olhar
Olhar do coração


[Verse 1]

All Realitive Things, My life inside the Bing, a 9 year veteran
A Westside 7 Mile Heroine

Mac & a Spoon, I put a 7 on the sedatives, lay back inside a room
And sell the fumes from all the medicine

I'm measuring, Top-Side, been involved, Peroxide
Heat it on the stove and watch a nigga do the Cha-Cha

I'm still fly, Lou Boutin, Buffi Cartier's
Mardi Gras party Rave
I dissolve by the 8th

I'm from the Lakes near Chicago
DiMaggio, embargo's my cream for Murcielagos
I'm on the throttle, Ensenada, Blowing Mexico
The Weapons Close, Concealed in my coat, I'm on my Plaxico

Puffin Vegetables, the Hustle don't stop
So we had to get it off of the block with One Shot
Chasin Cash, Livin Fast for the knot
But if the Muthafuggin Gwap Could talk I bet it sound like…

Chorus:

Bananeira não sei
Bananeira será
Bananeira sei não
A maneira de ver

Bananeira não sei
Bananeira será
Bananeira sei não
Isso é lá com você

Será no fundo do quintal
Quintal do seu olhar
Olhar do coração

[Verse 2]

It's all Relative, Bars be repetitive
That White locking up in that Jar we call it Negligence
I'm in a Residential, Cranking out a Residence
Scraping Residue in a bag for Dead Presidents

Izzo Kizzay, Sizzold Wizzeight
Out a 94' intrepid but them Hizzoes relate
Pistols and Kays, Piddle Plidday
Put yo' whole Boulevard on display the Hardway

I'm Like, Big Ole Kicks, them 4s fit
Perfect on that 76' I'm on some Old shit
I got the whole block Jumpin on some Bow shit
Buss it down, stuff in packs, Fug all that broke shit

The Hustle don't stop cuz niggas gotta eat
So we got to get it out in the streets, you feel me?
I'm living fast and free
But if the cash had a chance to speak
I bet it sound like

[Pre Chorus] x 3

I'm Living Fast and free
But if the cash had a Chance to speak
I Bet it sound like …

[Chorus]

Bananeira não sei
Bananeira será
Bananeira sei não
A maneira de ver

Bananeira não sei
Bananeira será
Bananeira sei não
Isso é lá com você

Será no fundo do quintal
Quintal do seu olhar
Olhar do coração
