-Maxo Kream is back with his RCA records debut “Brandon Banks”. He released the 3 singles “Meet Again” (which is one of my favorite singles of this year), “She Live” with Megan, and “Still”. Hearing these songs, I thought Maxo was going to release a full consistent album. I do not get that, but I do think this is a step up from his last project. This project is way more personal and way more touching. The album starts with him writing letters to his guys saying that his father might die in prison, his cousins got addicted by his own cocaine, and watching his guys daughter learn how to walk. “Bissonnet” is a reminder of Maxo growing up thugging over a hard trap beat. “She Live” is a strip club anthem with hilarious verses and bars from both Maxo and Megan. “Drizzy Draco” is the hardest beat on this entire project. The chorus is catchy as hell and a headknocker. “Pray 2 The Dope” is about Maxo selling drugs to save his life because it is the only thing he can do. “Brenda” is a cycle of baby mothers. A girl named Brenda growing up with a hoe mom and no dad. Brenda ended up going into a foster home and had a baby with a guy who doesn’t care. She ends up having a son, and she wanted a son because she didnt want the son growing up like the father. Now Brenda becomes her mom by becoming a hoe and a druggie and gets her ass beat by her son for stealing crack, then her son gets killed a week later. “Brothers” is a song about brotherhood. But Im going to act like I didnt hear the “bloothers” line from the feature. I think the problem this album encounters is the amount of garbage beats and “out of ideas” songs. Also, A$AP Ferg and Travis Scott had no business on this album.
