Tried and tested in endurance at a relatively earlier stage than most upstarts in Miami, Maximilian has consistently captivated his audience through the presentation of his material that has to sought to dazzle in brilliance, charm and outwardly become the talk of the town the very next day of its unveiling. We witnessed the initial appeal of Maximilian through the delivery of Neon/Noir, the debut project of the young South Florida talent. Maximilian formulated records like “Burgandy” and “4G” with meticulous, laser-sharp precision, in hopes of fostering a following that appreciates the effort committed to hip-hop fundamentals ranging from wordplay all the way to varying rhyme schemes.
As a man of distinct taste, it should be expected that the carving of the soundscape to accompany his vision would be something open-ended, but promising enough to show clear signs of direction. It’s an unspoken truth that one should surround himself/herself with individuals who are not only willing to contribute to the craft of interest, but go a step above the rest, losing thoughts, sleep and possibly relations along the way. This is why we believe Maximilian is ahead of the game, as it all comes together and proves to be a force to be reckoned with in the visuals for “Pressure”.
Directed by self-proclaimed ‘degenerates’ Maximilian and HxmeGrxwn, “Pressure” certainly has a theatrical feel to it, with its golden-blazon subtitles and quirky cast of close affiliates who engage in the niche market(s) of street fashion down here on the lower East Coast. It’s only the start of a campaign for the Return To Pistol Lake, which is expected to be fully unraveled by this Summer.
