After the drop of a trailer for his long awaited second EP, Silent Hill, MaxMilly follows up with the music video for Lost, shot and directed by Joel Tristan (Infinite Media).
Having recently performed live as an opening act for Z-Ro, MaxMilly is keeping momentum by releasing this new visual. The video finds the San Marcos rapper roaming through the night as lyrics from Lost light up the screen.
“Well, the song is called Lost, so I’m looking for something in a positive way expressing my thoughts and how I’m feeling,” says MaxMilly.
The project itself is a dedication to his close friends Adrian Diaz, Carlos Ortega and Joe Anthony Lozano, as well as inspirations XXXtentacion, Juice Wrld, Corbin, Awax and Raz Simone.
After touching down in North West Arkansas (NWA,) Hafa Adai Media/ Signature Management music artist Lungz swiftly networked. Finding local creatives that would be interested in exploring opportunities in the indy music field was a priority.
Knowing that this region of Arkansas has major room for improvement in developing an actual Hip Hop scene only inspired Lungz even more, yet acquiring the talent and engineering skills of Junior2Sav from bEAtZwRAp Soundlab was an unforeseen blessing that caught Lungz by surprise.
“I knew I could find artists to develop but discovering Junior’s work on social media was a total win,” said Lungz, “…Junior already has a loyal following, talent and work ethic to back it.”
Lungz continued, “I had this concept. A custom beat by JJRemix… with a Paul Wall sample… JJ used the sample I suggested.. and it was banging like King Kong in the mother fu**in trunk. I knew Junior2Sav would be the perfect feature for the record. He had the most legit studio in the area as well. It was inevitable that we would create something. NWA has never experienced a song like this locally.”

“Cannot Stay” by MaxMilly starts with music and vocal trills that sound like an *NSYNC song, or at least the background of one. That might not be enjoyable for those who enjoy the Hip-Hop scene, but it might be my favorite part of the song. It then transitions into lyrics by MaxMilly, which are slow to the point of depressing the listener due to the backing of a slow synth beat. The beat may be “hip”, but it’s not very “hoppy”, though it’s a Hip-Hop song.
Technically, the lyrics are understandable, which I usually like, because it makes my job of interpreting the meaning of the song easier, and therefore more enjoyable. However, it’s hard for me to understand the meaning of these lyrics. I recognize the words being spoken (as it’s more of a spoken-word pace), but even despite the repetition, it’s confusing what the message of the song is. Is this a break up song? Is this a song about being oppressed by society? There are references to feeling like a vampire and being scared of heights. Yet, I can’t drag an appropriate meaning to light from these supposed metaphors, nor from the combination of the two.
Maybe someone with more experience and interest in Hip-Hop and Rap music will be able to pick apart the song to reveal it’s true meaning, or to find it enjoyable without needing to know what it means. For those who love Hip-Hop music, this is definitely one to check out when you’re in a low-intensity mood.
