In a new interview with Don Diva magazine, Max B revealed he’s readying a new album called Negro Spirituals which was recorded during his time locked down.
Biggavelli confirmed he was releasing his next album, Negro Spiritual, in April. The project is basically self-therapy and soul-cleansing to get thoughts out of his head before leaving prison. With Max in a low-level security prison, he’s just now awaiting his release date from the can.
“I can’t wait, this is gonna be something for the ages. I’m gonna just put it out for me for the people,” Max B said. “You ain’t going to hear nobody on it. I might have one feature on it, I ain’t gonna say nothing, it’s going to be a surprise features. I’m gonna just put it out and I’m gonna just let it go, and I’m gonna just see what it do by itself. I want yall to enjoy this music that I’m about to put out because it’s real.”
Max explained the album was inspired by his time behind bars, and the oppression he felt as he served out his lengthy prison sentence.
“If you want to go inside my mind for the last few years of what I’ve been through, that’s what you’re getting with Negro Spiritual. That album freed my mind when I was being oppressed in this place,” Max B continued. “Back when the slaves was on the plantation picking cotton, they was oppressed, the chain gang used to come up with spirituals to free their minds. This is what you won’t get when you get that. It’s potent music.
