Today’s song is Cold by British rapper MAXSTA. The track is taken his latest project, The 1.5 Mixtape, released 30th March.
After the success of Got Gassed, MAXSTA drops this follow up single with a melodical flow and chilled beat. His lyrical content digs deeper and he shows how diverse he is as an artist. Following a monstrous end to 2013 as the headlining clash on the top 40 selling album ‘Lord of the Mics’; MAXSTA is back with a collection of tracks that sees him make a welcome return to his musical roots with ‘The Maxtape 1.5′.
Speaking of his latest release, he says: “Its all about the Maxtape 1.5. Having parted ways with Sony Records, I feel I’m in a place where I want to create my own lane and basically become everything I’ve wanted to be and everything I am by showing all of my industry and life experience so far. I feel like my music is coming from an adult view point now and I’m excited to surprise my fans, other artists and most importantly, myself.”
In 2009, at the age of just 17, MAXSTA released his debut project the ‘The Maxtape’ featuring singles such as ‘East London is Back and Skadoosh with Ghetts & Dolla Da Dustman which led him to become the first artist to sign to Sony RCA subsidiary, Just Jam pioneered by SBTV’s Jamal Edwards. After penning a contract with Just Jam, MAXSTA went on to feature in Adidas’ We Are London campaign and release his debut singles I Wanna Rock which featured as Radio 1 presenter, Nick Grimshaw’s record of the week and Wanna Go featuring Little Nikki with the pair reaching number 67 and 40 respectively in the UK charts in 2012.
