After twenty years in the business, Maxwell is still as relevant as the day he dropped his debut in ’96. His fifth album BlackSUMMERS’Night drops today, and reflecting on his long career reveals a velvety-smooth transition from his early years to adulthood.
Other artists around the same age haven’t been quite so fortunate. While Maxwell’s music has reflected his growth as an individual, artists like Juicy J are embarrassingly giving us the same salacious material as 40 year-old men that they were serving up as young bucks in 1996.
Who has adapted with age, and who is still stuck in the 90s?
