Maxo Kream has released his new album The Weight of the World. The album can be purchased via Big Persona/88 Classic/RCA Records. The album features Tyler, the Creator, Monaleo and A$AP Rocky as well as Don Toliver and Freddie Gibbs.
“I was trying to work on the album right before pandemic hit,” Maxo Kream said to Apple Music. “I’m on tour, I’m in the UK, I just did Brandon Banks, I had a lot of s**t on. Between the pandemic, the birth of my daughter, and the death of my brother, it gave me something to rap about. It gave me another story.
“I’m a big storyteller, and sometimes it might take me a year and a half, two years, ‘cause I gotta go through shit, I gotta live life, so I can come back and give y’all folks my goddamn experience. I was there the second day after my brother’s death. I felt like I had to do this. I don’t do internet, I don’t got no diary, so the closest thing I got to vent, or like for therapy is the booth.”
Maxo also revealed that Tyler, the Creator of Yams Day 2020, was his friend. “He said he fucked with me, he said he heard Brandon Banks, he was in the UK with Rick Rubin, and then Rick was just jammin my shit. Tyler said that to me and I was like, Rick Rubin fuck my shit! We exchanged numbers and when he arrived in LA, he told me to pull up at the studio. The rest is history. Me and Tyler got like five or six tracks, but that “Big Persona” was that one.”
