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.
