Maxo Kream’s quiet time is officially over.
The Houston rapper returns with “Local Joker,” his first official single in more than a year complete with a music video to boot. The somber music video highlights Maxo rise from hard scrabble in Alief to riches and a new connection with his father. All the while, he, family and friends wear tribute T-shirts for his brother, who tragically lost his life last year.
“‘Local Joker’ explains where I’m at in my life right now,” Maxo said in a press statement. “I love Houston, I’m from Houston. My merch is Houston-focused. My music has a strong Houston influence-everything is Houston, it’s local. You can catch me in any part of Houston with the local jokers – but at the same time I’m not a local joker because I’ve grown and expanded the territory that I touch. But home will always be home- and that’s Houston, Alief fasho!”
