Maxim Scheming XL


Scheming [I](XL)[/I]

When your day job involves being the scary-eyed MC for the [a]Prodigy[/a],

people generally don’t expect you to be building post-Missy R&B in

your spare time. But Maxim Reality is just such a man, and
‘Scheming’, second single off his forthcoming ‘Hell’s Kitchen’, is

just such a track, an inescapably addictive blend of junglist beats and technoid

basslines, with vocalist Trina Allen spitting acid, fighting-claws out,

and generally behaving in a fierce enough manner to suggest ‘Scheming’

could easily take ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ in a fight. One to send to Ad-Rock,
