Houston rapper Maxo Kream has announced his major label debut album Brandon Banks. It arrives July 19 via Big Persona/88 Classic/RCA Records. According to a press release, “Brandon Banks” was his father’s alias. Maxo said in a statement:

This album is me telling the story of how I’m just like my dad except
he was a scammer and I was a trapper. Despite his flaws, he was a
great parent, always made sure the rent was paid, made sure I went to
school, taught me right from wrong. I wasn’t raised to be a trapper,
it just happened because of my circumstances. My relationship with my
dad now is great—I used to be terrified of him growing up but now
that’s my n****a. We’re like yin and yang.

Brandon Banks features contributions from Travis Scott, Megan Thee Stallion, Mike Dean, Murda Beatz, ChaseTheMoney, and others. It also includes Maxo Kream’s recent singles “She Live,” “Meet Again,” and “Still.”
