Critical Praise:

“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

The Mixtape:

With more than a year between releases, 23-year-old rapper¬†Maxo Kream¬†is back with a gritty, captivating¬†mixtape¬†#MAXO187. “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,” states¬†Noisey¬†in their premiere of the project.¬†‚ÄúThis tape is a perfect encapsulation of the sound of hip-hop’s rapid synthesis of styles in the Internet era¬†and the way the genre’s new underground heroes are¬†bridging aesthetic and regional gaps,‚ÄĚ Noisey says, adding, “more importantly, it is also fucking cool.‚ÄĚ

Maxo Kream’s #MAXO187 mixtape¬†includes features from¬†Joey Bada$$, Lamb$, The Sauce Twinz, Father, LE$,¬†and Fredo Santana.¬†“His storytelling has improved,” praises¬†Complex, “with more thoughtful and varied songs that are drawn from his rough past as a gang member.”¬†For a local Crip with a history of home burglary and drug-peddling dating back grade school,¬†Maxo Kream¬†takes a lighthearted approach to making music.

Dating back to 2014, Maxo has ¬†been teasing ¬†the #MAXO187 release with videos for singles ‚ÄúClientele,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúEnd Zone,‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúTrigga Maxo,” as well as last week’s¬†drop of the audio single Cell Boomin.Having set the bar high with 2013’s QuiccStrikes mixtape, which Complex named one of the year’s best releases to come out of Houston,¬†Maxo Kream is already catching fire with this¬†sophomore project,¬†#MAXO187,¬†as he’s sure to be making noise in¬†his home state during SXSW in Austin later this month.

Maxo Kream Background:

Upon meeting him, gangsta rapper isn’t the impression that most would get from buzzing Houston emcee, Maxo Kream, age 23. 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.
