Don’t tell, but Max Fischer is hip-hop's best-kept secret. A New York-born, Omaha-fled resident, Fischer chooses a purist's approach, long since forgotten by his Midwestern contemporaries. Embracing an East Coast ethos, he brings to the mic smart and often hilarious lyrics, complex rhyme schemes, a razor-sharp delivery and, most importantly, a hunger to expose the world to his craft.
2003 marked the release of two independent albums for Fischer, the Livematik EP and Behind Bars mixtape. Following their completion, Fischer supported his work on a West Coast tour with indie-beat explosion The Show Is the Rainbow.
While on tour, Fischer began talks of releasing his debut full-length, Nobody Knew, on Beats Broke. Shortly thereafter, Dutch producer Inf was enlisted. With four albums under his belt, including what 3voor12 called his solo “low-fi masterpiece,” Inf enthusiastically agreed to handle all production duties on Fischer’s freshman release.
Blessed with Inf’s refreshingly organic boom-bap, the highly anticipated Nobody Knew marks Fischer’s growth as lyricist, transgressing past mixtape content and limiting pre-conditioned styles.
Max Fischer has shared the stage with such acclaimed national artists as Heiruspecs, Oddjobs, Mac Lethal, Har Mar Superstar and De La Soul.
