Maxo has released new Madlib-produced single “48” featuring Pink Siifu from his forthcoming sophomore album Even God Has A Sense Of Humor.

Maxo is back with new single “48,” tagging producer and collaborator Pink Siifu to join him on the cathartic track.

“48” will be featured on Maxo’s forthcoming sophomore album Even God Has A Sense Of Humor, with a press release for the album saying it will arrive “soon.” In 2021, the rapper appeared on Siifu-assisted track “Holy Hell” from The Alchemist’s This Thing of Ours, but Maxo’s new album will follow his 2019 debut Lil Big Man which featured LIVE, Lojii and Siifu. In a 2020 interview with Cultured Mag, the rapper discussed first meeting Siifu at Poo-Bah Record Shop in Pasadena.

“He’s the type of person where, everybody f*** with him,” he said about Siifu. “By being around him, I met so many of the people in my life now.”

Earlier in the interview, the Lil Big Man rapper shared his photogenic approach to music, based on the concepts of observation and healing.
