Maxo Kream, who released a new album today, shared some important words about mental health in an interview. There’s no race here, it’s a marathon.” Take my time. Everything moves when it moves. During the pandemic, there were many people dropping, but it was not my time. It took me quite a while to get the structure right, but we also noticed how therapeutic my music is. In light of Mental Health Day, this effort is very important, as it often gets overlooked, especially among Black men.”
