The story of a 15-year-old who was addicted to veganism and addicted to video games, Max B is the Silicon Valley documentary of a 15-year-old's journey through many of the same struggles that many in the Valley are going through.

He made his mixtape debut in 2006, and signed a recording deal with fellow Harlem-based rapper Jim Jones' label/group ByrdGang. Following a streak of financial and ethical grievances, Max B parted ways with Jones in 2008. The two became embroiled in a bitter feud which pitted Jones and his associates on one side, and Max B and his affiliates on the other. Max B is closely associated with producer Dame Grease, and fellow rapper French Montana where the two collaborated on the Coke Wave mixtape series.In 2005, Max B appeared as a feature on various records, including "G's Up" and lead single "Baby Girl" off of Jones' sophomore album Harlem: Diary of a Summer released in August. He appeared as a feature on "You Gotta Love It" off of Cam'ron's Killa Season album released in May 2006, and released his debut mixtape Million Dollar Baby the same month. Max B collaborated on the ByrdGang mixtape M.O.B. (Members of ByrdGang) released on July 7, and made several feature appearances on Jones' mixtape The 7 Day Theory released on September 27.

Montana’s new album, They Got Amnesia, plays on the idea that some rap fans sleep on his work. But anyone who remembers, say, 2009’s Coke Wave — his collaborative tape with Max B, an East Coast version of what Thug and Rich Homie Quan are to the South — recognizes French as a highly significant New York figure. If Max was the street legend of the 2000s, Gotham’s crooning and rapping vocalist, French – who was raised in Morocco before moving to New York as a teenager – was its muscle, with a South Bronx-dizzy delivery that would get him signed to Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Records. The Cocaine City DVDs functioned as a documentary for the New York streets, and Montana and Max kept New York afloat when Roc-a-Fella had disbanded and G-Unit had started bickering like the Roy family (with 50 being Logan). Despite a few underwhelming verses and some trend-hopping in the years since, New Yorkers with Yankee hats who thrive off of disgust have not forgotten French Montana.
