Max B The Thread

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

For the last couple months ive listened to nothing but this dude. This is total late pass for me obv -- i just assumed he was, like, a Hell Rell type talent for a long time & bought the "NY fell of" narrative past when it was fair. But now I can't get this stuff off my ipod.

drop the top / picture me rollin / stake sause / blow me a dub / goon music / i warned u / flash dance / where do i go / all my life ... this stuff is kind of perfect to me, blend of really melodic ear & lyrical rapping, matter-of-fact real talk and a reggae-style inclination for reversioning classic pop jams ("do for love" "I want you" even effin "Englishman in new york"). dame grease's production is extroverted pop ish but with a real dilapidated feel, appropriate for post-golden era new york.

anyone else feelin these band

sorta the appeal is that hes got this grimey persona
really musically-minded dude tho, apparently wrote a bunch of hits for jim jones too

*kl0p* (deej), Monday, 31 January 2011 16:24 (eleven years ago) link

Jim Jones has a bunch of hits?

some dude, Monday, 31 January 2011 16:26 (eleven years ago) link

yes?

*kl0p* (deej), Monday, 31 January 2011 16:27 (eleven years ago) link

i mean w/in the rap world, sure

like charted R&B but not top 40

*kl0p* (deej), Monday, 31 January 2011 16:28 (eleven years ago) link

either way, writing "We Fly High" is nothing to be proud of imo

some dude, Monday, 31 January 2011 16:35 (eleven years ago) link

\Oo/ obv it shows if faculty for writing hits that resonate w/ a lot of ppl cuz it sure wasnt the production that made that one a smash

looking forward to this thread i just got around to coke wave this weekend. he really is so greasy

when does he get out of jail

flopson, Tuesday, 1 February 2011 06:44 (eleven years ago) link

in an interview he suggested hed be out by summer

but im pretty sure his appeal hasnt actually been granted yet?? so summer, or 2085

flopson, Tuesday, 1 February 2011 06:45 (eleven years ago) link

yeah i'm into this to a point, like i said when he came up in swag last year thru the first rnt comp. i got into him thru noz, predictably enough. this post, in fact. deej is actually in the comments there but since a gucci track was up first i guess there was no way he was gonna make it to the end. anyway i ended up dling a lot of tapes, reading everything i could abt him and actually wrote the original version of his current wikipedia entry for some reason.

i think noz realized he was doing something unique in NY with his relationship to melody, sort of like a less embarrassed, less cynical 50. 50 often sounds like he's too gangster to really try to sing, so he'll just indicate melody enough to get it across or condescend to make it commercial. with max b his woozy relationship with melody is inherent in every track, inherent to who he is & what he's doing on the track. anyway i agree coke wave is a good starting point, & quarantine next. i have a few more but i can't really distinguish them tbh. there was always another tape coming up. on further investigation btw, last year's A Wave Called Yes is a mix of old and 'new', i presumed it was all old because it has shit like "tattoos on her ass" on it plus, u know, he's in jail.

i presumed he was gonna be in jail forever, plus after the first flush of summer i think his mixtapes are just a nice listen, so i'm not really excited abt him as a future talent at this point but i'm enjoying bumping coke wave again, it's sounding gr8.

zvookster, Tuesday, 1 February 2011 13:20 (eleven years ago) link

This whole tape is great forgettable and fun sing song rap in the way that Kid Cudi’s publicist would probably throw around those words, except for real. (It’s probably not new either in the sense that Max might have dropped six tapes since.) Here Max and one of his weed carriers from straight out the Roy Rogers Fixins Bar float around on this ethereal track. It’s like something the Block Beataz would whip up had they grown up on the Heatmakers instead of Mannie Fresh.

noz on "all my life" & Quarantine from the above link

zvookster, Tuesday, 1 February 2011 13:24 (eleven years ago) link

have we talked about the choppa down video yet??? it's so ridiculous

surfboard dudes get wiped out, totally, Tuesday, 1 February 2011 14:14 (eleven years ago) link

i've got the "best of the wave" mixtape - it's some dope thugged out melodic music but i don't have too much to say about it really. 50 is the obvious reference point for me. what's the crossover with this tape and the others you've mentioned btw?

tbch, i only see piranhas (tpp), Tuesday, 1 February 2011 15:11 (eleven years ago) link

coke wave is a classic

sisilafami, Tuesday, 1 February 2011 17:06 (eleven years ago) link

man its sooo funny how these guys sing their own hooks, reminds me of like hillbilly music or drunk ppl or dogs howling in the night -- & like when he harmonizes w/ his own adlibs singing falsetto soo lol. really charming though. wavy is my current favourite bitches all love us biggavella macaroni with the cheesy... easy

my concurrent musical discovery/obsession is this australian punk band uv race who, idk, as little as they have in common in any way, get by on a lot of the same charms; blurring the lines b/w intentional sloppiness & musical defiency backed up w/ lots of personality & actual talent

lol & also cool that zvookster wrote his wikipedia page

pete rock did a song w/ max b & it bangs.

heres what it said when pete rock talked about it in vibe:
NY's Finest--Pete Rock (2008)
“I got introduced to Jim Jones through someone who was working with him. I called him up and said, ‘Hey, I’m going to come through your session with some beats.’ We did a song called ‘G’s Up,’ which was on Jim Jones’ first solo album. Then from that came the song ‘We Roll’ from New York’s Finest. This was before Max B got locked up. Jim told me that Max actually convinced him to jump on that song because he didn’t understand how to come in on the beat. Max was kind of helping him out [laughs]. But it came out excellent.

wait you never heard Max B before 2009? like 2-3 years after "Baby Girl" and "You Gotta Love It"? weird.

some dude, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:52 (eleven years ago) link

id heard OF him of course, and i heard him on some other shit since, he was on that jay diss track or w/e, but it was the first solo song of his i heard yeah.

*kl0p* (deej), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:53 (eleven years ago) link

or at least, that i heard & registered as 'worth hearing'

*kl0p* (deej), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:54 (eleven years ago) link

this is kind of irrelevant but i actually first heard it cuz dudes at dirtyglovesbastard had highlighted it, which is where noz first heard it too i believe

*kl0p* (deej), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:54 (eleven years ago) link

yeah "You Gotta Love It" was the Jay diss. but like "Baby Girl" was the Jim Jones semi-hit he was actually on, i thought that's what we were talking about upthread!

some dude, Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:56 (eleven years ago) link

ive heard it since then!

*kl0p* (deej), Wednesday, 2 February 2011 03:57 (eleven years ago) link

i think 'public domain 2' is the most slept on (by us) Max B tape. sometimes I like it more than Coke Wave.

I think Quarantine is his most nl statement, though

Currently serving a 75-year jail sentence, rapper Max B is keeping busy making use of old and new technology to make new music. Old technology (the payphone through which he raps over collect calls) and new technology Legitmix, an innovative new platform that allows the Hood Internet-produced track "Hold On" to be released with an uncleared Madonna sample.

Number None, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:36 (ten years ago) link

Legitmix lets you legitimately give away or sell your work by creating a Legitmix file for your remix, mash-up or DJ set. A Legitmix file is like an instruction set fans can use to seamlessly recreate your work using their copy of the source tracks. Legitmix can search a fan's computer for source tracks so they only need to purchase the ones they are missing. The recreated remix is identical to your original version and can be automatically imported into a fan's iTunes library. In a few clicks fans can buy your work and the original tracks you sampled.
