In today’s industry, there’s a lot of definitions going around for what it means to be an OG. Maxo Kream is one of those artist’s that has lived that life in it’s most real sense. The highs and the lows. It’s a life that can make a young man wise beyond his years, or snatch his dreams from him before they can come to fruition.
"Back when a face tat was for OG killers, now I'm seeing teardrops on you Soundcloud rappers. Remember when face tats were for OGs, you couldn't look them in the face, now you see face tats it's like oh he's probably a Soundcloud rapper, with like purple rainbow hair or something… Trap Rap turned into dope fiend rap bro. These n*ggas junkies, this new age shit, they be doped out. They be getting robbed, and falling out, and be in the feelings, and beef on the internet.”
Thankfully we have real OGs like Maxo to remind us how easy it is to market a lifestyle through a phone, but’s it’s a very different thing living and experiencing it for real.
