blame it on Shake July 16, 2019

Before he drops Brandon Banks album on July 19th, Maxo Kream sat down with ItsTheReal on the latest episode of the A Waste of Time podcast.

Lengthy (and appreciated) break down, courtesy of the Rosenthal brothers:

“We talk to the newest Roc Nation signee about how Jay-Z reached out through Mike Dean, the literal fights that allowed him to make a name for himself around Texas, getting co-signs from newer stars like Travis Scott as well as legends like Bun B, where his head was at as an up and coming artist, trying to get on by any means necessary, whether taking another rapper’s chain or spamming artists and executives and publications just to get his music heard, how much he looked up to the Cool Kids for their style and their smooth ways and told producers that he worked with that he was on the search for Chuck Inglish type beats, the differences between the Nigerian side of his family vs. the African American side of his family, what it’s like to have multiple members of his family behind bars, how hustling wasn’t a sport but a means to an end, how he’s mellowed out a little bit – his last fight wasn’t too long ago, so don’t get the wrong idea – but realizing how much is on the line and how many people are relying on him to do right, his new album Brandon Banks, which goes super in depth into the rollercoaster that is his relationship with his dad, Brandon Banks, Sr, and so much more!”
