The 29 year old Houston emcee releases his major label debut album under RCA Records.
With an emphatic return, Maxo Kream delivers his newest album titled Brandon Banks. The riveting 15 track project is an intro and retrospective offering as it is layered with lyricism and story-telling. Maxo has recruited a strong supporting cast with Travis Scott, A$AP Ferg, Schoolboy Q, and a link up with Megan Thee Stallion for a hometown anthem. Maxo is also accompanied by his blood brother, KCG Josh, on a fittingly titled track, “Brothers”. Maxo consistently glides on the various velvety instrumentals as his ways with words are truly enticing. There are components in the project that all hip-hop fans can appreciate no matter what time period they are from and that is the beauty of Brandon Banks.
As intriguing as the features are on the album, Maxo undeniably shined in all of his singles. On “Brenda” and “Dairy Ashford Bastard” Maxo unwinds detailed accounts from his life and people around him with such striking mannerism. “Drizzy Draco” and “Spice Ln.” are a couple of my personal favorites off of the project as Maxo showcases his peppy and beefy flow. Riddled with bars and flashbacks intertwined, this project is certainly one of my favorites this year. Considering Maxo is only getting started over at RCA, I look forward to what his future holds as he is evidently a special talent.
