Melbourne rapper-producer Silent Jay has shared a new remix collection of Craig David songs, entitled ‘777’.

‘777’ chipmunks and chops up seven tracks from David’s hit 2001 debut ‘Born To Do It’, including singles ‘Follow Me’, ‘Rewind’ and ‘7 Days’. The album cover is branded with Silent Jay’s alternate moniker, Nap King Cole.

The record’s title refers to the number of tracks, the price, and the fact that it will only be available for the next seven days. It was released in time for Bandcamp’s revenue waiver, which runs until 5pm AEST today (July 4).

“ON APRIL 1ST 2020, CITIZENS OF QUEZON CITY WERE PROMISED FOOD DISTRIBUTION BY THE GOVERNMENT AND LIED TO, SO IN TURN PROTESTED DEMANDING FOOD AID, ONLY TO BE VIOLENTLY BEATEN AND ARRESTED BY THE POLICE.”

All proceeds from the sales of ‘777’ will go towards Agapay Balangay, a student-led charity which helps provide food packs to families in crisis in the Philippines.
