THE B-SIDE
TO THE MAX
10/9/15

Earlier this year, Fall Out Boy's frontman, Pete Wentz, confidently stated, “No one is a bigger believer in MAX than me.” Pete, step aside; you’ve got some strong competition. 

This self-proclaimed Super Jew was converted to MAX-ism as MAX took The Troubadour by storm, causing a sea of love-struck girls to erupt in screams between each song, and leaving me wishing I had invested in some high-end ear plugs.

At one point, I looked down at my phone to jot down notes when I heard what I thought to be a guest-rapper and was surprised to find the seemingly innocent mensch spitting rhymes himself! He promptly followed the rap with sexy dance moves as he—along with his devoted fans—sang a hook proclaiming, "I'm gonna be the next big thing." I sure as hell believe it. 

MAX's infectious energy combined with a falsetto that would make any soprano jealous are key ingredients to his impending super-stardom. Having sold over 85k copies of his single, "Gibberish," and currently boasting over 1m YouTube subscribers, Crush Music’s wunderkind is only growing stronger as he continues his North American tour.

Watch the video for "Gibberish" (from the Ms. Anonymous EP) below.
