The once-and-future standard bearer for the Houston underground, Maxo Kream is on track to hit the big time. Coming through with an H-Town dream collab, Maxo shares “She Live,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Produced by TJ Osinlu, “She Live” (pronounced like Hive) finds Maxo and Megan trading flirtatious bars in a Pimp C-esque patter atop booming bass, flashing the lyrical ability that makes them stand out in the Houston and National rap scenes. On his verse and stuttering hook, Maxo describes his perfect woman–beautiful, curvaceous, and independent enough to earn a buck on her own. When Megan saunters in, she embodies Maxo’s fantasy, spitting her signature raunchy rhymes: “Houston hottie, natural body/I want it and he gon buy it/Cause I’m freaky and I’m loyal/He love it so I get spoiled.”
Last week, Maxo started a new chapter in his career, as he signed a new record deal with Big Persona/88 Classic/ RCA Records. To celebrate his lucrative new partnership, Maxo shared “Still,” a thumping ChaseTheMoney-produced banger. With a bit of introductory smack talk from Maxo’s father, “Still” finds the Houston native shouting out his new label: “Still makin’ deals, just signed me a deal/Signed to RCA, one point five mil.” “Still” is Maxo’s second single of 2019, following “Meet Again“. The video was directed by acclaimed director Shomi Patwary (Beyoncé, A$AP Rocky, Pusha T).
