Maxo Kream Shares New Single “Grannies”
After dropping his The Persona Tape back in June, Houston's Maxo Kream is back with a new single paying homage to his family matriarch. On "Grannies," produced by Mexiko Dro, Maxo introduces a number of family members including his brother, uncle and aunt, painting a picture, as the single cover art does, of parallel lives, one in the home and one in the street.
Maxo's flow on the song is a straight shot, the hook bleeding into the verses which lead back into the hook. One particular anecdote involves Maxo stealing his aunt's car to commit a crime, the rapper saying, "Two days later, HPD pulled up and questioned Auntie Trishie/Knew I took her car and hit a lick but she ain’t tell 'em shit/They searched her car and let her go they almost charged her for a grammy/Never snitched, betrayed the family, but she always told my granny."
Speaking with XXL earlier this month, Maxo says his new music will reflect more of his story, saying, "It’s more emotion, it’s more feeling, telling the story of Maxo that niggas don’t always get to see. Not just the guns and this and that but really paint the picture. I want to take all my fans on a walk with Maxo."
"Grannies," which can be streamed below and downloaded via iTunes, represents a first step in that journey. Maxo plans to drop a debut album this year as well as two EPs, one with Mozzy.
