Street life and the struggle to make ends meet, as well as the multitude of effects they have on family relations, inform the frank narratives of rapper Maxo Kream (Emekwanem Ogugua Biosah, Jr). The native Texan went from local to national phenomenon during the front half of the 2010s. He first charted with Punken (2018), a full-length that led to a deal with major label RCA, which issued subsequent albums Brandon Banks (2019) and the indicatively titled Weight of the World (2021). The rapper consequently signed high-profile management and recording contracts with Roc Nation and RCA and made his major-label debut in 2019 with Brandon Banks. That album, featuring contributions from Travis Scott and Megan Thee Stallion, entered the Billboard 200 at number 68. In 2021, he issued Weight of the World, a deeply ruminative set led by the Tyler, The Creator collaboration “Big Persona.” 2022 brought the solo cut “Jigga Dame,” which appeared on a deluxe edition of Weight of The World.
