Max B proclaims his strength on a new record titled “Don’t Push Me” featuring his usual running mate French Montana. Max B spits a fresh verse over a sample of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five’s classic song “The Message.”

“There’s no more riding music out there right now, that’s some ancient folklore,” Max B told Rolling Stone from jail. “So we gotta put that back in perspective. I was coming with some funk.”

KHUFU NAJEE

R&B singer/songwriter NBDY releases his debut EP Admissions following his signing with the newly relaunched Arista Records.

On Admissions, NBDY explains, “This EP is an open letter to my past relationships. Now looking back at the creative process that birthed Admissions, I wanted to make each song as honest and in the moment as I could. It’s a collection of stories about the trials I went through while finding myself through the many different languages of love. It’s literally everything I’ve never said before now.”

He continues, “Sonically, the darkness of the production paired with haunting backgrounds, vocals and melodies were inspired by my childhood love for artists like Brandy, Usher, and more recently, Frank Ocean and Justin Nozuka. The passion they capture in their vocals is unmatched in my opinion, and I wanted to hopefully capture that same effect by giving my listeners a real feel of cultured R&B.”

BJ The Chicago Kid featuring Offset – “Worryin’ Bout Me”
