Maxo Kream

Nov. 3
7 p.m.

Maxo Kream’s dry, gravelly voice and light, watery trap beats suit the garrulous, conversational cadences of an attentive storyteller who loves to play with autobiography and fiction. The Houston rapper’s second album, Brandon Banks, is a pained, fierce, brooding examination of his family tree and his father’s life, named for his dad’s real-life criminal alias. With Q Da Fool and Slayter.
