We are 7 Yeer, a duo of Artae Jones and Shaheim Dennis. We are two young men from Chicago’s Westside. We’ve been friends through high school and college, a friendship which has evolved into a partnership as writers. Through scripts, proses, poems and music we use a variety of mediums to share stories that are inspired by our lives, our loved ones and our surroundings. These stories are not all pretty, but they are an outlet for suppressed emotions offering words of encouragement, food for thought, and raiment for the soul to the listeners/readers. We want to inspire them to make their own difference. You could either build your own dream or build the dream someone else has for you. Building your own dream is the bridge to making your own difference.

7 Yeer has several projects in the making, one of which is a series of writings that will contribute to an anthology. The writings will be accompanied by a soundtrack so that you can dance with the words. 7 Yeer’s first installment, “Backwards”, was a short story, copyrighted 2017, and published on July 14, 2017. We are working towards film adaptation. These projects are products of our love for the art of writing and making music.

Art gives purpose to life. Our goal is to share from our soul in order to uplift any and everyone who is open to receive us. This task requires faith, strategy, support and resources. We are humbly asking for contributions to aide in printing and book binding, film development, recording and building our platform as artists. Be compelled to make a difference. With the help of your sponsorship, equipment, supplies, skills and or finances, we can make this movement permeate through any barriers and stimulate future generations with determination and progressive action.

And honestly, words can’t convey our gratitude. We Thank You! But we will show our thanks and appreciation through our work. Thanks, again.

We want to thank all of our donators for their support and belief in our mission. Similar to driving past a construction site and marveling at the progress of the building, we want to give an update on our website for the public. The following link will take you to our first published short story, "Backwards": http://contact7yeer.com/2018/03/18/backwards/ The end of the story will take you to two links “Meet Uncle Lou” and “Listen to Backwards Soundtrack.” Read the story, and click on both links to fully experience “Backwards.” Now remember, the site is still under construction, so if you do decide to browse through the site keep in mind that there is more to come!
