Muze PNote Bed-Stuy rapper Maino spent nearly a decade behind bars before he launched his rap career. Thanks to numerous appearances on mixtapes, the "Maino Is the Future" tagline started appearing about 2004, just one year after his release. Switching labels, scrapping a finished album, and not releasing his official debut for five years brought this "future" into doubt, but it was really just a case of the stars aligning because IF TOMORROW COMES is a killer way to start a career. Over an especially good Swizz Beatz production, he identifies himself as different right from the start, declaring it's better to give than receive on the opening "Million Bucks." Feeling good about the success of others isn't common in gangster rap, but Maino is hardcore all the way and will later offer "I contemplate, they ain't never hear you screams with a pillow to your face" on "Kill You." IF TOMORROW COMES believably lives in both of these worlds because it is a concept album that follows Maino from crack addict parents to prison and on to parole where he's determined not to fail. He speaks to the soul-crushing joylessness of prison and what an important role pride plays in his life, and how much that differs from the average rapper's ide-a of respect. Lighter moments appear along the way with the infectious and snide "Hi Hater" and the T-Pain-produced victory number "All the Above" keeping the album from becoming too heavy. After all that time in prison, Maino has few answers but he has a plan, and it happens to be a righteous plan.

Artist Overview

Brooklyn rapper Maino learned to rap so that he could deal with boredom and isolation while imprisoned. After about ten years, he was released and set up an imprint called Hustle Hard. He enjoyed airplay on New York City's Hot 97's and made several mixtape appearances. "Rumors" and "Take It Like a Man" got his name buzzing; Universal signed him in 2005. The deal eventually fell through, but Atlantic picked him up in 2007, and the MC issued the street single "My Life Is Like a Movie" that year. Another track, "Hi Hater," surfaced the following year, prefacing his major-label debut, 2008's If Tomorrow Comes.... ~ Cyril Cordor

Professional Reviews

XXL (Magazine Publisher)
(pp.88-89)
- "[S]ongs like the album-closing 'Celebrate'...and the Just Blaze-helmed 'All the Above,' with T-Pain, display the rapper's appreciation for his current position, as well as for his previous hard-knock life."
