Close to a year after the release of his successful Kickstarter-funded EP, A Rebel Named Max, Max Fullard is preparing to release a new project this fall titled Nights of the Fourth. The Virginia Beach-raised rapper teases the EP with its first single, “1999,” premiered here on The Juice.
The dissonant and dark production, courtesy of producer and artist Gabe Niles, serves as a backdrop for the reflective song, as the rapper talks candidly about his days as a rambunctious young kid. The rapper gets some assistance from D.R.A.M., who spits a grimy verse that is completely unexpected and vividly real.
The song itself showcases Fullard and Niles’ sonic chemistry and serves as an example of the “camaraderie” amongst the Virginia-based RBLE crew, which includes them two and rappers Artel Carter and Ced Hughes.
