“Street niggas, they love me because we’re identical / Smart brothers, they hoping I go political / Try to tell them my message is not spiritual / But who I’m kidding? I’m still tied to a criminal” – Maino, “Mama I Made It”
Those words gave me the chills.
After weeks of nationwide promotion, rapper and Brooklyn ambassador to the streets, Maino follows up his Jermaine EP with his new album, On Everything I Love, a 13-track album that expects nothing less from the BK native.
On Everything I Love, Maino flaunts his swagger, shares his pain, and gives his motivation through his gritty lyrics with hard-hitting production from Heatmakerz, Scram Jones, GQ Beats, Kuzo and special guest features from Manolo Rose on his hit single “Love & Loyalty”, Jim Jones, Dave East, Lyrivelli, and last but not least, Macy Gray, who is featured on the smash tune, “All Again”.
On Everything I Love is out now on all digital music streaming sites.
