Italy-based singer drops single

Maximo - Contributed

Born in 1988 in Kingston City, Maximo is an up-and-coming Jamaican artiste of the generation that emerged in the wake of the influence of Sean Paul, Shaggy and Bob Marley.

Maximo moved to Italy when he was 12 years old to attend an Italian football academy for three years, where he learnt to speak Italian and Spanish.

He began singing at the very early age of six, a talent that he developed from listening to his mother, who is also a singer. Maximo appreciates a wide variety of musical styles, singing, writing songs as well as producing.

He continues to hone his unique sound with Demented at Kingston Elite Studios. "I am currently working on fresh material for the near-future release of my mixtape," he said.

Maximo's latest musical project, titled Living The Life, is doing very well on YouTube and several television stations locally. "This song gives you a sneak peek into my world," he explained.

Living The Life has also been featured on Spitfire Hip Hop, a hip-hop website for emerging talent. Maximo was inspired to write the song by an incident that took place with one of his friends, who was not happy with his choice to do music as a career.

Past musical projects include You Don't Know Me Like That and EveryTime They See Me, produced by John Marcus of Chop Chop Records.
