Artist Numbaa 7 Links With Money Man For New Single: Smile Today
Dallas rapper Numbaa 7 taps Money Man for “Smile Today.”
The new single that Appears on Diary of a Steppa. It features appearances from Mo3, Babyface Ray, Jackboy, and more.
Signed to H$M Music, the label founded by the late Mo3, Dallas rapper Numbaa 7 infuses his brand of soulful trap with a personality that, like most things from Texas, is larger than life. Returning to sprinkle some positivity in the daily hustle, 7 shares his spirited new single, “Smile Today.” The Money Man-featuring track finds 7 floating over fiddles and flutes with his buoyant drawl as he embraces the status he’s earned: “Louis V down to my feet/They say, ‘7 you pressure,’ I tell em, ‘I know, I’m big homie out here in these streets.’” Produced by Dallas mainstay and frequent Mo3 collaborator Rob Stovall, the single appears on 7’s project, Diary of a Steppa, which arrived July 15 via EMPIRE.
Born and raised in the Pleasant Grove section of Southeast Dallas, Numbaa 7 determined that the only way he could escape his circumstances was by picking up a mic and a pen. At the age of 16, rhyming under the name of YNB x Stretchgang, 7 released “Numbaa 7,” his debut single and anthem, racking up over 2 million streams across platforms. Despite his fast start, Numbaa 7 encountered personal and legal obstacles that nearly convinced him to give up on his rap dreams. That all changed when he met Mo3, the Dallas legend, who took him under his wing and signed him to H$M Music. After signing to H$M in 2019, Numbaa 7 quickly regained his regional bonafides, teaming with Mo3 for “Play Wit ‘Em,” a Dallas street hit that racked up over 5.6 million views on YouTube. Mo3 tragically passed away in November 2020, but since then, 7 has put in the work to further his mentor’s legacy, releasing singles like “Control Us,” with Mo3 and fellow H$M artist MTM DonDon, “Murda Who” ft. Jackboy, and “Chess,” which Sparky called a “Dallas anthem.”
With Diary Of A Steppa, 7 welcomes listeners into his world, carrying the flame for H$M as he builds his own legacy in Texas and beyond. Stay tuned for more.
Diary of a Steppa Tracklist
Five years ago, Dallas, Texas’ Numbaa 7 achieved over 2 million views with his very first video. “I was just trying something out and doing it,” the 22-year-old says of his 2016 self-titled breakthrough. Then, months later, a turn of events nearly caused 7 to walk away from rapping for good. But in 2020, after a challenge from the late Mo3, 7 regained his momentum—with five more songs that quickly reached seven figures. Now committed to his craft, the artist who balances punchline bars with melodic deliveries prepares his debut, Diary Of A Steppa. Featuring Babyface Ray, Jackboy, and Money Man, this album celebrates a unique comeback story and releases this Summer via H$M Music/EMPIRE.
