D. Cash - Max Julien Flow
The Wikipedia page on Blaxploitation icon Max Julien currently states that “[a]bout 30% of the world’s rappers,” have sampled the actor’s vocals from ‘73 flick The Mack (citation needed), apparently reduced from a 90% figure at some point in 2009. Whichever made-up statistic you prefer, there’s no denying his heavy influence on the game—an influence that’s palpable on Max Julien Flow, the latest release in D. Cash‘s #ConsistencyKills series. Here, the mellow Chris Large production from Shaquille O’Neal’s Biggie-assisted You Can’t Stop the Reign back in ‘96 is repurposed as a backdrop for bars celebrating Cash’s paper chase, his sex appeal, and his general smoothness. Deviant underlines the artist’s pimpitude on the visual tip. Fans of the Magic City rhymesayer can keep it locked for further #ConsistencyKills releases leading up to the arrival of Cash’s upcoming mixtape, AU79.
