Max B has become somewhat of an urban legend. Though his time outside of prison and in the rap game was extremely limited, he developed a cult like following that continues to show their support to the Harlem rapper. Just ask A$AP Yams about the wave. As a hookman and writer, you can see his influence lingering around rap today. Honestly, I can’t say I’m a big Max fan, but this lost reference track caught my attention. According to G-Codes, “Keep Your Head To The Sky” was originally penned as a reference track for Diddy to use on Biggie Duets. Apparently, they had the beat to Christina Milian’s “Say I” before it was sold. Could you imagine if this made the final cut?
This post was actually a reference or rather an idea done by me and Max B. Right after Puff recorded this song for Jim Jones “What You Sipping” I decided to give the homie Max a shot. Puff and I actually liked Max B, I wish I could have signed him. That’s whole other story. However what I will say is the beat was originally for Puff for the Biggie Duets, actually was supposed to be a single. Then Cool and Dre,weeks after having the beat, their manager at time said she sold the beat to LA Reid. Fast forward it was a single for Christina Milian. Well this song is for the Max B fans and for my homie A$AP Yams! Max B aka Mr Prolific keep your head to the sky (Pause).
