Houston’s MAXO KREAM has dropped a bomb this week with new track ‘Grannies’. Displaying a bouncy, relentless, and what must be a quite breathtaking flow, Maxo speaks about the delinquent actions of his youth. After he was kicked out of home in his mid teens, and went to live with his granny and ‘Auntie Trish’ (the track tells us), things took a turn for the wild –
‘Wake up in the morning, load my pistol, can’t leave home without it / Come from where you see a lot of bodies, but don’t talk about it’
There is a worthy ethic behind the track – as Maxo explained to Complex:
“I made this song so people could understand me. A lot of my fans are in the white hipster internet crowd […] They like my music, but they don’t know why I say certain shit. They can’t relate to it. ‘Grannies’ describes a typical scene at my Grandma’s place which is where I lived after mom and dad kicked me out when I was 14 or 15 years old. Everything I said in that song, niggas know. Ain’t no secret, it’s real.”
Expect robberies, police pursuits, family members smoking your draw, and crack deals using grannies car. The instrumental has a sort of 90s west coast feel – this track is sick. Listen in above.
