A refined technician with excellent taste in beats, Maxo Kream is redefining the parameters of Texas rap. Taking us on a tour of Houston from the neon-lit downtown to his modest home neighborhood, Maxo boasts about the art of the hustle on “5200.” Earning and counting cash wherever he goes, Maxo makes his way from the club to the chop shop and to the BBQ in the new video, showing off all sides of his considerable hustle. “My first job was in the kitchen, I was washin’ dishes,” rhymes Maxo. “Robbin’ n*ggas, juugin’ bitches, I made it out the trenches/Nowadays I work my work, you should really thank me/Used to take your work and smirk, I was hella janky.” With an ethereal instrumental and some of Maxo’s most inventive flows, “5200” is the closing track from Punken, Maxo’s acclaimed debut studio album. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Titled after one of Maxo Kream’s childhood nicknames, Punken takes a deep and revealing look into the rapper’s past, with Maxo mastering his storytelling ability and hypnotic flows atop forward-thinking production. Featuring appearances from Trippie Redd, 03 Greedo, and D. Flowers, and with production from The Wlderness, Beatboy, Sonny Digital, Ethereal, Honorable C Note, $uicideboy$, Tommy Kruise, Wolfe De Mchls, Teddy Walton, and MexikoDro, Punken
