ABOUT DEATH ROW:
“Death Row is all about someone’s will to achieve, accomplish, or even gain something. I made the song at one of my lowest points in life. I was so hungry and so determined to achieve what I wanted that I was willing to put my life on the line. Most people feel like they’re in “do or die” situations and I felt like mine was worse. It was Death Row – a place where people don’t even have a choice. So when it came to my passion, my career, I knew I would either achieve everything I set out for or die trying— despite my situation at the time.

In the video, I had so many ideas on how I wanted to convey my message. There’s so many ways to interpret the visuals. You see me running from so many things, only to find out that nothing is chasing me. It’s all in my head. I guess when you want something so bad your mind will find ways to highlight self doubt or reasons to give up. That’s just human nature. But I know that the only person that can stop me from getting whatever I want is me. So at the end of the day you’re really just running from yourself.”

“The rising LA rapper started his rap career just a few short years ago, but he already raps with the kind of wise, world-weary delivery that some artists don’t develop until they’ve been at it for twice as long….He raps his ass off, he tells introspective stories and tackles some heavy topics, and his words and delivery are both sharp.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“Maxo’s music showcases an underlying grittiness that effortlessly matches his stylish sound: a balance of low-key cool with a weariness that only comes from having to grow up too soon.” – Pitchfork

“The video suits the textured track wonderfully, complimenting its inviting sounds. With the swirling camera and gentle color pallette, it’s the perfect introduction to Maxo’s music.” – Complex

ABOUT MAXO

Maxo, 23, started recording his musings just a few years ago, inspired by his older brother’s struggles in coping with the world around him.  

“That was around the time of Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin,” Maxo recalls clearly. “Just being a Black man will take a toll on you, whether you recognize it or not. That, in combination with trying to find yourself. It will drive you crazy. He lost his shit.” A middle child (he has a younger brother), it was tough to see his older bro—who loved to rap—hit a rough patch. When society stressed him out of his love of music, Maxo picked it up for him.
