Critical Praise for Maxo Kream:

“This new Maxo Kream project might be one of the best things 2015 currently has to offer.” – HYPETRAK

“Over the last couple years, Maxo Kream has established himself as one of Houston’s most exciting young rappers by way of being one of Houston’s least traditionally minded artists.” – Noisey

“A sinister and visceral portrait of Houston street life.” – Pitchfork

The Song:

Houston rapper Maxo Kream enlists Rich the Kid and Playboi Carti for “Spike Lee,” produced byChuck Inglish. The rappers turn up over the booming, horn-filled production with rhymes about their lifestyles filled with women, money, and lean. “Me and Carti were in like three different cities together in like four days, and we finally got in the studio and he just hopped in the beef and killed this hoe,” explains Maxo, who featured on Carti’s huge 2015 hit “Fetti.” Reflecting back on the making of “Fetti,” Maxo adds: “Me and Da$h was fucked up in the studio and my manager and Ian [Conner] brought Carti to the stu. He was fresh out of Atlanta and hungry as hell. We had no idea that song would be the biggest shit to happen to all of us.”

Rich the Kid recently brought Maxo Kream out as a special guest at his Houston show, where he performed the aforementioned collab with Carti, “Fetti.” Rich and Maxo first linked up earlier this year during a previous tour stop in Houston. “Me and Rich the Kid’s fans been blowing us up about a collab, but shit we had never met yet,” Maxo says. “So when he was in Houston for a show with Lil Uzi Vert, we met up and set it up.”

“Spike Lee” follows Maxo Kream’s nostalgic 1998 video with Joey Bada$$, as well as his Grime-tingedBig Worm single, which received props from Skepta. Hailing from Texas, Maxo Kream is heavy on the national radar following his acclaimed 2015 project #Maxo187, which debuted via Noisey and was labeled by Pitchfork as “a sinister and visceral portrait of Houston street life.” Maxo Kream’s distinct sound and persona have earned him praise by Passion of the Weiss as “Houston’s Savior,” and fans can expect more from the heavy hitter soon.

Maxo Kream Background:

Upon meeting him, gangsta rapper isn’t the impression that most would get from buzzing Houston emcee, Maxo Kream, age 24. He has a surprisingly goofy and playful demeanor, often cracking self-aware jokes and displaying a smile with showcases either his gold grin or his trademark gap in the upper row of this teeth. But, make no mistake, Maxo’s backstory is a tale consisting of crime and death that would catch the attention of the most jaded followers of gangsta/trap rap.

Inspired by his college trip to SXSW and the fact that other street cliques throughout Houston such as FDAB (founded by late rapper T.O.Y, a childhood friend and Crip associate of Maxo) and MashMode (which has now resulted in the buzzing careers of Houston rap duo, The Sauce Twinz) were transitioning into music as a form of expression, Maxo and his younger cousin Lyndon (rap moniker Lyndo C), jumped into music. Now, front and center is Maxo Kream’s sophomore project, #Maxo187. With big name features and outstanding production, Maxo intends to show that he can compete with any emcee in the game.
