“Yeah, we still fightin’ RICO. Man, this sh*t ain’t through. Still Trigger Maxo, uh-huh, mother**ker, still ridin’ through sprayin’, just slayin’ mother**kers. Still don’t like ni^^as, three Ks, Uncle Ruckus. Put your homie in the ground and you still ain’t touch us. Still Forum Park back to Spice Lane, mother**ker. I ain’t gotta shoot the steel, still whoop a mother**ker. Yeah, a ni**a still, still got a chopper too big to conceal. Still makin’ deals, just signed me a deal. Signed to RCA, 1.5 mil, still sellin’ dope, label like I need to chill. Still reppin’ 10110 Murder Blocc still. B*tch call me Maxo, took it, that’s still.” – lyrics
‘Still’ is the first single released by Maxo Kream as a newly-minted signee to Big Persona/88 Classic/RCA Records.
The likable tune contains a street narrative, introspective rap vocals, and gritty instrumentation produced by ChaseTheMoney.
Also, the audiovisual for “Still” is the second video from Maxo Kream following the prison-set, Shomi Patwary-directed video for “Meet Again”.

“I know this rap shit look real sweet, but my real life, it ain’t no fun. ‘Cause right now, I’m out on bond, my dude, he on probation. My Lil’ bro on the run, he think he on vacation. My pops back in the system, he just might die in prison. My mom his co-defendant, so she got locked up with him. He got snitched on by his own sister, she the eyewitness. Now every time I see my blood cousins, I don’t even feel ’em. See what them drugs did to my own cousins, started actin’ different. Cookin’ drugs with my older brother, bakin’ soda whippin’. Servin’ drugs with my older brother ’til he started sniffin’. I think my bro addicted.” – lyrics
Once again, Maxo Kream excels at telling street-orientated tales with vivid details that will pull you into his world.
His narrative raps weave heartfelt tales into grim and darkly alluring portraits of his life in the Houston underworld.
‘Meet Again’ contains a relatable storyline, harmonious rap vocals, and edgy instrumentation produced byTeej & Mike Dean.
“He has a surprisingly goofy and playful demeanor, often cracking self-aware jokes. Also, displaying a smile which showcases either his gold grin or his trademark gap in the upper row of this teeth. But, make no mistake, Maxo Kream’s backstory is a tale consisting of crime and death that would catch the attention of the most jaded followers of gangsta/trap rap.”
Maxo Kream, born Emekwanem Ogugua Biosah Jr., grew up idolizing his father, who spent much of Maxo’s youth in-and-out of prison.
In his illegal enterprise, his father used the code name Brandon Banks, which Kream wisely used as the title of his album.
‘Brandon Banks’ transports listeners into Maxo Kream’s world, which contrasts the grim realities of poverty with the luxurious life of a successful rapper.
