Owwww…Five Wavy Pics Of Max-B Styling In $300-$900 BB Simon Belts

Even though Harlem rapper Max-B is setting behind the prison walls waiting on his appeal, we can’t forget about his Lenox Ave wavy style. Beside Jim Jones and Juelz Santana, Max-B was the first rapper I have seen wearing a BB Simon belt. In the summer of 2007 and 2008, Max-B was one of the people who made BB Simon belts very popular in NYC/NJ. If I had to describe Max-B style in one word it will be “wavy.” He kept a matching BB Belt around his waist to go with the outfit and sneakers he worn. The belts cost anywhere between $300-$900 dollars and can be purchase at retails in NYC/NJ or online at bbsimononline.com.

Max-B has an album titledVigilante Season, which will be coming out sometime this year on Amalgam Digital. As of press, no word on when the album will be out. According to a few reliable sources, Max-B aka Biggaveli can be home as early as summer 2011.

Disclaimer: In no way, shape or form was I paid or received any compensation for posting/promoting BB Simon belts on my site. I posted the belts because it goes with this story, plus I think the belts are dope.

Source: “What’s your assessment of President Obama thus far?”

Diddy:  “I love the president like most of us. I just want the president to do better. There’s a difference between us voting for somebody and us believing in somebody. He’s the person that we believed in so I pray night and day that he understands how God ordained his presidency. I feel there was a promise made to God to look after people that was less fortunate, and [many] of those people are African-American…”

Dope Video: Waka Flocka “Bringing Gangsta Back”

After being shot, getting into a physical altercation with some crips in Atlanta, going to war with Young Jeezy and his crew and being arrested a few times last year; Waka does have a reason to “Bring Gangsta Back” on his new track. I’m feeling this song, the beat is sick, the hook is dope and Waka really stepped his game up lyrically. “Bringing Gangsta Back” is featured on Waka’s upcoming mixtape Salute Me Or Shoot Me 3, which is hosted by  Trap-A-Holics. The video is pretty simple and plain. Waka got straight to the point. Blink Folk Films directed the video. Peep the video below.
