Weight Of The World isn’t a reinvention, rather a top-to-bottom, RoboCop-esque improvement on the established formula.

Every aspect of the Texas rapper’s personality locks into place on his latest album, the most deeply personal statement of his career.

Goddamn, Maxo brought some heat to the table! I've been listening to Maxo Kream since Punken and always appreciated how much he cares for his craft and how creative he can get with his beat selection. On this record he got some pretty amazing takes on experimental rap translating them into a trap format, I guess we can thank Mike Dean for making it sound so crisp (he mastered the entire album) & Mixed By Ali's fingers are around in every song too.

Love seeing that Maxo keeps working with ... read more

Maxo's flows are really similar from track to track, as well as his song topics - for an artist to be that samey in both sound and rhetoric to STILL sound good is a helluva accomplishment, and Maxo Kream does it without breaking a sweat. The features keep the front-to-end listen colorful, and the beats all have really nice bounce to them regardless if they're hype tracks or more contemplative moments. But, don't get it twisted - Maxo's the star for a reason. Brash but incredibly responsibly in ... read more

I keep saying Maxo shows a lot of potential with every album, but I’m still waiting for him to capitalize on it.

Maxo’s reflective storytelling is as strong as ever on ‘WEIGHT OF THE WORLD,’ speaking more on his past, personal struggles, and familial bonds. On his last two records, his attempts at harder bangers obstructed this narrative angle, but they’re now far more unique and diverse. His features also used to feel distracting, but they bring plenty of welcome flavor here, and are better utilized overall (with the exception of Don Toliver’s drab vocals on ... read more

Maxo doesn't do a lot to set himself aside from other rappers, because he raps averagely on this album, with very average storytelling. The songs with features, especially "BIG PERSONA" get carried by the feature. Maxo legit sounds like a feature on his own song on that track. I guess I don't really see the hype with this one, because sure it isn't bad, but Maxo Kream also doesn't do anything remotely special or unique on here.
