Maxo Kream – Quicc Strikes (Mixtape)

I expected good things from this based on the released singles, but daaaammmmn this is good. Maxo is great at putting words together and his dark narratives of crime and debauchery are right up my alley, but I already knew that going in. The surprising thing here is how Kream, a Houston native, meets the appropriated post-Drake-A$AP-cloud rap construct of the ‘Houston sound’ head on, strips it for the more interesting sonic elements, and leaves the rest in the dirt like a pile of blunt guts. The result feels like a thoroughly modern, even forward thinking, and most importantly very much authentic take on Texan rap. Maybe my favorite thing from this region since The Outfit, Tx’s S&R:CFSAF
