“Sometimes, diving deep into Maxo’s world feels almost like Being John Malkovich or The Cell”,” raved the Houston Press about local favorite Maxo Kream‘s latest release. “You can easily get lost in the dalliances of gun talk, the endless supply of lean, and ultimately Maxo’s penchant for leaving bodies all over the place. It’s akin to looking at Chucky, the best friend of Fresh, talking about his favorite comic-book hero, The Punisher.”
Picking up where he left off with 2015’s Maxo 187, Maxo Kream improved upon his own sinister blend of noirish Texas rap with The Persona Tape. Featuring appearances from fellow Houston rapper Paul Wall and Atlanta rappers Playboi Carti, Key!, and Rich the Kid, the tape finds Maxo Kream exploring the intricacies of his public profile versus how he perceives himself. Praised by Red Bull, who said the tape was “packed with sordid tales from Texas, with Maxo flexing his narrative skills over a crusty trunk full of bangers,” as one of the best mixtapes of July, The Persona Tape is the best project yet from one of Southern Rap’s rising stars.
