This past January, Maxo Kream delivered his first release of 2019 and his first major solo single since the early-2018 debut of his critically-acclaimed studio album Punken. Known as “Meet Again,” the record uses a wonky sample-based beat from Teej and Mike Dean as a vessel to deliver Maxo Kream’s somber and sobering portrayals of street life and his criticisms of the United States’ criminal justice system. For the official “Meet Again” video, Maxo Kream and director Shomi Patwary provide viewers with an unsettling look inside the confines of prison buildings and the lives of those who are forced to inhabit them, providing the original track with a fittingly-dark visual companion. This also marks the second time that Maxo Kream and Shomi Patwary have worked together on a music video for one of the Houston rapper’s standout singles, as the pair previously teamed up for the striking “Roaches” vignette.

“I’d rather be carried by 6 before I’m judged by 12 | F*ck 12, before I tell, I’d take a 38 shell’ is a line from the track about how a lot of people would rather be killed than locked up. The judicial system and the prisons work against the black community in so many ways and really needs to be reformed,” Maxo Kream previously told us, describing the narrative of “Meet Again.” “This is a song of solidarity to all my brothers and sisters who are locked up. It’s a message to keep strong and let them know there’s people on the outside who are thinking about them and looking out for their families.”
