Juice40K pays homage to the Wave on ‘Max B.’ If you’ve yet to hear a Juice40K record, that might stand to reason, seeing as how ‘Max B’ is one of only two cuts to be released. Juice’s drug-fueled, sonic dialogue doesn’t just take a metaphorical bow to Biggavelli, but combines vulnerable pieces of what comprises 40K himself. While often finding lyrical solace in the subliminal, J40K takes the overt approach; A drowned-out onslaught of sex and drugs, chronicling the role vices play in the game of artistic expression. ‘Max B’ epitomizes a more youthful look at not only Max’s legacy, but an audio documentation of the pivotal crossroads where drug culture and urban culture collide. “Ridin’ round my city bumpin’ on that Max B/pour this Pimp C, off this Codeine’ defines the song’s direction, cementing a strong early release from another DC hopeful. Produced by $HrOOMAVeLi, ‘Max B’s’ ghoulish drums and slow paced tempo match Juice’s authentic persona, capturing tangible thoughts in between lean sips and rips from the Backwoods. ‘Max B’ is a generational record. Juice creates a generational dichotomy where understanding the Waviest one’s legacy and impact on todays culture vehemently collide, and whether that was intentional or otherwise, the Juice is still undeniable.
