Maxo has evolved into one of rap’s most acclaimed and respected emcees, earning a reputation as a storyteller for his detailed accounts of his dark past.
Upon meeting him, gangsta rapper isn't the impression that most would get from Houston emcee Maxo Kream. He has a surprisingly goofy and playful demeanour, often cracking self-aware jokes and displaying a smile which showcases either his gold grin or his trademark gap in the upperrow of his teeth. But, make no mistake, Maxo's backstory is a tale consisting of crime and death that would catch the attentionof the most jaded followers of gangsta/trap rap.
Maxo will say that the pandemic did little to affect his day-to-day, but the time he had to reflect - coupled with the passing of one of the most important people in his life -wrenched from him his most honest and autobiographical work to date. With‘Weight of the World’ Maxo is unraveling his grief with profoundly grounded precision. The 16-track, 44-minute project boasts features from Tyler, the Creator, ASAP Rocky, Freddie Gibbs, Monaleo, and, on the album closer, Don Toliver.
