Maino Talks Credibility, Fighting, Growth

Maino Talks Credibility, Fighting, Growth

Maino visited The Breakfast Club to discuss his new album The Day After Tomorrow.

Calming down:

“Definitely, It’s growth. At the end of the day it’s growth and I’m just out her trying to just make good music, not let it just be about my so called credibility in the streets. Because what s already known don’t need to be said all the time. ANd we’re living in a different age where now it’s not so much about your credibility or your background, it’s more about actually having great content.”

Fighting people:

“Real talk, I didn’t really no know better. Because my idea and what I was seeing for what the game was. I was like from where I was standing at, Like these dudes be acting like they’re really bout that. Im about to show them, I couldn’t wait to get in and show them what it really was about. But then I had to understand that, people don’t really handle their problems like that. It’s like we come from an environment where we do But when we get into a more broad corporate environment, we get to middle America and we see that The people that think like that, that’s a very small part of the population.”

Banned from clubs:

“It got hard out here for me for a second. I had the problems with clubs, I had problems getting into clubs. Like Maino, no definitely, no way, he cant come in. I had issues so I kinda had to reverse the energy because I was like, it makes no sense to be blessed like this, then mess it all up.”

“I started to think like god blessed me and gave me an opportunity to do something way different than I was used to doing. It was like, I don’t need to mess this up, I need to straighten this up, I need to reverse this energy because then you start chasing this money away and then what?”


“The people, the audience is different now. They don’t relate to what we kinda traditionally used to do. It was a time when hip hop was built on credibility or stuff like that. Where it’s at right now it’s not a bad thing, but then at the same time, I may look like a martian to some of these kids because it’s like real, death before dishonor, love and loyalty, I don’t know what your talking about. I just want to get high, smoke and go to school and chill and mess with the girls, I don’t relate to that.’

“You got to just understand where the game is at. Because it doesn’t matter, obviously, what your past was or who you was or wasn’t. You can be whoever you want to be now with music if the music is good. So I guess everyone is on a playing field whether you was a real dude or just a lame, or you just lying on record, it don’t even matter no more because nobodies saying aww man, I respect him because he’s real, It don’t even matter, the audience is just different, you got to change with it.”

Check out the rest of the interview to hear Maino discuss his relationship with DJ’s in New York, changing his style, and his first encounter with DJ Envy.
