"A Houston-native through and through, Maxo flashes a grin that reveals a blindingly radiant grill, encrusted in diamonds. He wears an equally iced-out chain -- customized with the logo for his streetwear company Persona -- and an Atlanta Braves fitted cap. In other words, he's crisp, ready for his long-overdue breakthrough."
Maxo will say that the pandemic did little to affect his day-to-day, but the time he had to reflect -- coupled with the passing of one of the most important people in his life -- wrenched from him his most honest and autobiographical work to date. With Weight of the World, Maxo is unraveling his grief with profoundly grounded precision. The 16-track, 44-minute project boasts features from Tyler, the Creator, ASAP Rocky, Freddie Gibbs, Monaleo, and, on the album closer, Don Toliver.
