Hear It! Jam of the Week: Maxxx B
This week's jam comes directly from Evansville, Ind.
Maxxx B, local rapper, Angry Nerd and producer, is releasing a mixtape displaying growth, imagery and change.
The 12-track mixtape includes a variety of songs, with something to fit every mood. Maxxx touches on themes of love and heartbreak, partying and loving life. Every song is different, but comes together around the same theme.
When Maxxx began recording this mixtape in Jan. 2014, he didn't have a concept at first but just making songs.
"I spaced it out," Maxxx B said. "But then I got a spark one night."
As the songs came together around a theme, Maxxx had to come up with a name for his creation. Which was a struggle at first, he said.
"My homie said, call it Montana Max, like the character," he said. "I can relate to the character in so many ways now that I'm older."
This tape is more aggressive, he said.
Montana Max is available for download on DatPiff.com.
