The "H-Town sound" has become a sub-genre of its own as of late, with artists like Drake (even though he's from Canada, he appreciates the culture) & Kirko Bangz bringing it back into mainstream attention. UGK gave the movement its original boost during their reign, and Hip-Hop has accepted it as a norm since then, producing more artists who have helped further its resonance.
The sinister flavor invested into Maxo Kream's creativity serves as the culprit on his prevalence over the last couple of years--he's become a widespread phenomenon in his hometown of Houston, TX. Before receiving the final touches by OG Ron C's Chopstars Crew, Maxo's "#Maxo187" project had already made noise of its own, with records reaching over 100,000+ listeners via Soundcloud. With those kind of stats, it's no question as to whether his music can sustain--numbers don't lie.
Maxo Kream's 16-track project goes through a series of moods, if one were to ask my honest opinion. Though this type of Hip-Hop isn't quite my speed, I am very conscious of the fact that in today's realm of music, this falls right in line with the new urban culture. Standout records like "Cell Boomin" featuring Father, who Maxo recently did a few shows with in Houston, set the pace for what you can expect from this grand work of art. That song alone has reached over 400,00+ listeners.
As you can tell, I'm very much so into the statistics of this music business, & with that being said, have a spin below to the chopped not slopped version of Maxo Kream's latest project, "#Maxo187".
