NEWS: Max B Signs W/ Amalgam Digital, Says Jim Jones’ Wife “Touched It In Miami”

By Cyrus Langhorne

Former member of Jim JonesByrdGang, Max B, has signed a three-album deal with the hip-hop online company Amalgam Digital.

Mostly known for his frequent hooks and various appearances on hit records for Diplomat members Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, and Jim Jones, Max will join the Amalgam Digital roster - which is currently home to Peedi Crakk and Joe Budden. The Harlem rapper, who also goes by The Silver Surfer, is best known for ghostwriting Jim Jones’ monster single, “We Fly High (Ballin).”

Expressing his excitement for the deal, Max explained his relationship with the genre specific digital store as being something out of the ordinary.

“Amalgam Digital is wavy like water,” he said. “We sooo wavy…. Ooooowwww!”

First up for the rapper will be his street release Public Domain III: Domain Pain (The Album) this summer that will precede the debut album Vigilante Season on the Amalgam Digital label. A third untitled album is expected to follow and will only be made available via the company’s website.

Each album will be entirely produced by Dame Grease known mostly for his work with artists like DMX, Nas and Freeway.

In related news, Max was recently seen on a YouTube video sparking some controversial statements against Jones.

“Shout-out to Chrissy, I love you baby,” he laughingly said. “She touched it in Miami. That’s Jim Jones wife by the way, oh yeah.”

Public Domain III: Domain Pain (The Album) hits stores on August 5th.
