Houston and Brooklyn connect in Maxo Kream‘s nostalgic new video for “1998,” featuring Joey Bada$$, filmed in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, premiered today byWorldStarHipHop. Filmed in the grainy style of ’90s home movies, the video finds the artist Passion of the Weiss called “Houston’s savior” and the Pro Era general echoing Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, chilling on the porch with a boombox and a blunt. “1998” is a highlight from Maxo’s acclaimed 2015 project #Maxo187, which debuted via Noisey and was labeled by Pitchfork as “a sinister and visceral portrait of Houston street life.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.Last month, Maxo Kream tore up his home state of Texas with several high profile shows at SXSW. Following the festival, Maxo synthesized the sounds of Southwest Houston with the sound of South London on the Grime-tinged single “Big Worm,” premiered by The FADER, earning praises from Grime vet Skepta and racking up nearly 300K plays on Soundcloud. “Big Worm” followed the late 2015 releases “Shop” and “Out the Door,” the latter being a collaboration with Atlanta rapper Key! that premiered on Complex, who noted that “both of these guys are in for a big 2016.
