Each month Y7 will spotlight an up-and-coming music artist of color chosen by a member of our team. Throughout the month, the artist’s voice will be amplified on our social media and in our studios with dedicated themed classes that showcase their talents, along with a charitable cause close to their heart. All proceeds from those classes will be donated directly to that charitable organization.

Music is and will always be a big part of the Y7 experience. We are excited to use our platform to educate and inspire as a community.



Rapper, singer, producer, composer, and audio engineer. Chris Borelli grew up below the poverty line in Boston, MA. At age14, he was adopted and began to interpret his life from an entirely new perspective. He discovered his love for music by teaching himself how to play piano as a means to stay out of trouble and began singing / songwriting on a regular basis. It wasn’t until the age of 18 when Chris discovered his abilities in hip hop. He began writing verses and simultaneously building his production skills as an undergrad in college. It was there where Chris discovered his voice in rap music and began crafting his energetic stage presence. His abilities strengthened quickly as he applied his traditional knowledge of music into his style of rap. His lyrics are raw and direct. His messages are confidently delivered. His content is pure, honest, thoughtful, and relatable.



Throughout the month of February Maverick has chosen to highlight The Loveland Foundation.
Loveland Foundation is committed to showing up for communities of color in unique and powerful ways, with a particular focus on Black women and girls. Our resources and initiatives are collaborative and they prioritize opportunity, access, validation, and healing.

All proceeds from themed classes this month will be donated directed to Loveland Foundation.


Artist Spotlight themed classes will take place throughout all Y7 studio locations. February’s theme classes will be announced soon.
