Atlanta artists Kris J and Maui Max team up for the joint single, “Neva Want” produced by Avery Mcrae.
“Neva Want” is the first release from Kris and Maui’s forthcoming six-song collaborative EP, Neighborhood Pilots, as well as Avery’s production project, I Think We Got It Vol. 1.
“Me and Maui have been homies for a minute so it’s more than just music. As of lately, we’ve been out here running our race so the music was definitely going to come eventually.
We have a real vibe when it comes to creating music, that’s why the thought of a tape dropping with me, Maui, and Avery would be a crazy project.
Shout out to my producer Avery McRae too. He’s definitely been working on his producing and beat making. We created a sound that I feel is organic and original.” – Kris J.
