Maxo Kream is a rising artist from the Southwest side of Houston. The Kream Clicc member has established a cult-like following due to his sharp flow and crystal clear imagery delivered through his gritty bars about his hometown. His project Quicc Strikes pushed him into the limelight, hitting over 85,000 hits on LiveMixtapes. To cap off 2013 and set off a strong 2014, Maxo ran the Texas leg of Chief Keef’s tour and dropped a visual with A$AP Ant for their collaboration “Mob Of Gods.” With Maxo’s next project 187 on the way and his buzz at an all-time high, Kream is on pace to be the next big artist out of H-Town. —Christian Mordi
Name: Maxo Kream
Hometown: Houston, TX. (Southwest side called Alief)
I grew up listening to: Game, 50 Cent, Nas.
Most people don’t know: That I am a sneakerhead and into sneaker restoration.
My style’s been compared to: In regards to style, I wouldn’t say I have been compared to anyone, but I am into high-end streetwear like Bape, Supreme, etc.
In regards to skill people say I sound like the most random names, but many of my hardcore fans say I don’t sound like anyone else and that’s why they like my music. It’s organic.
My standout records and/or moments to date have been: When I dropped “Rigamortis” which was a remix of the Kendrick song I saw a push from my fans for real. “Mob Of Gods” with A$AP Ant also has gained a lot of steam. In regards to shows I had A$AP Ferg bring me out during the Turnt x Burnt Tour in Houston. I also went on tour with Chief Keef during his Texas run of his tour. I also had a successful run at SXSW this year.
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To keep the “H” on the map and show people we aren’t falling off.
I’m gonna be: The next and only Maxo Kream.
