(From Globetrottin' single; 2023)
As Mic Terror sang on that White Gzus song, it's the Return Of The G. Craig David met that lass on a Monday, Gabriel Gzus reappeared on the same damn day. Some Midwestern waviness goin' on in this song, a vibe that's best described as Bone Thugs-N-Biggaveli. That said, Globetrottin' feels more like an intro than a single, so hopefully it's the prelude to another capital A Anthem in the vein of Forever Gangster.
There's a breezy little new Max B song on that new Coke Boys compilation. Max & the guy who runs the This Is Biggavel YouTube channel have even done a video for it. Who else but Biggavelz is out here shooting music videos from inside their prison cell?
(From French Montana & DJ Drama's Coke Boys 6 compilation; 2023)
Mountains aside, I usually loathe Paul Couture's Von Dutch soundin-ass beats, but this one has caught me off guard during the January blues. Reverse-seasoooooowwwwwnal effect innit? Song's more of a splash than The Wave, but it'll work lovely soundtracking some winter warz this January.
Can’t go wrong with a Patrice Rushen sample
A musical cheat code.
I could've swore I saw that Lemonade joint months ago somewhere on Youtube but I cannot find any mention of it anymore.
It's a cool track and here's hoping we finally get Max home this year.
There's another song called Lemonade on one of his Library Of A Legend volumes. It's someone else's song he guests on if I remember right.
Turned out to be that exact track, though the version I found doesn't feature anybody else: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHoCEE_p2OI
Ah, that's just Max's hook looped twice with the Avatar guy whose song it was completely removed. Which is an improvement on the proper song because the Avatar guy sucked.
This new Max is heat
I like it more and more each time I play it.
Unsurprisingly, it's the only good song on that new Coke Boys compilation.
glad im not the only one digging that new Max B song/ video
prob the only song he's done from prison that give me that old feeling and hope for the future
His tracks with Dame Grease from 2020 were better imo:
I Didn't Mean To Kill A Man
They Don't Know
Nobody brings out the best in Max like Grease.
i will have to check those... i kinda tuned out after trying to get through a few of those money grab songs / projects with rando producers
I gave up hope after that B.S House Money album, but he pulled me back in when he reconnected with Grease.
"Promises" was an amazing recent Max B song...I believe I had it in my top 5 the year it dropped
this song is fire in part bc its a great sample: https://twitter.com/somanyshrimp/status/1613765375715610626
Yeah I liked that one too. I can live without Porno Music 2, but other than that the Charly EP was classic Max.
I fucked with a good chunk of Negro Spirituals... Max still got it
I fux with Mountains, the Over intro, and Don't Make Me Cry off that album.
Is I Gotta Habit now being Max's biggest song on streaming the Maya Jama effect? 🤔
Or is I Gotta Habit now being Max's biggest song on streaming the reason why Maya Jama keeps posting it? 🤔
I like how his new music sounds shittily recorded (presumably cos he's in prison), adds to the golden age feeling imo
'Mountains' is superclassic
I just flashedback to the article you co wrote for Complex re: Max, one of the best articles complex will ever see
sincerely, diet coke boy corpsey
The days when Complex let a bunch of undesirables like me, Serg, Plum Drank and DK all up on their platform. Props to David Drake for making it happen.
Would be great to see more I dunno "longform" or organised writing from you (no shots to your always superb blog). Do you write for any websites?
Yours, quavers gang corpsey
Nah, I don't do longform.
