Review of Streets by Maxsta
After releasing critically acclaimed single ‘I Wanna Rock’ earlier this year becoming the first artist to release a single with his current label (Just Jams), owned by entrepreneur Jamal Edwards. Ever since has has been building a stronger street buzz and continues to strengthen this with new project #Gear6Season. The ‘season’ which consists of Maxsta releasing a new track from his upcoming EP started just this Tuesday. The first track making its premier was ‘Streets’.
The song is all about the lyrical content rather than the actual music and features a raw telephone conversation that emphasises the songs message. It’s a rooted and strongly directed message all about the streets of London and how the journey to become the biggest rapper around are a struggle. Then Maxsta applies this to everyone and not just those trying to move from East-West London making the story a lesson to learn from.
Sonically, there is nothing that impresses but with a clear direction and focus this beat does not affect the overall outcome. Sharing a real sound of the street instead of a minimalistic third verse adds to the sense of realism this story has.
So far #Gear6Season has impressed even though only one track has officially made its debut, lets hope the rest follow in these now paved footsteps.
So what do you think of the track and our review? Do you think Maxsta has what it takes to be the next big thing from the UK scene? Let us know by adding a comment below, tweeting us @MusicEyz or posting on the Music Eyz Facebook page.
