PREMIERE: Maine The $aint Releases 'Humble Beginnings' EP

The project was iinspired by companies like Apple or Google that both originated garages, I really wanted to create an ode to the “Small Start”. Putting together this project involved me writing from a perspective that would resonate with any artist trying to build from a ground level. After this, fans can expect a collaboration album coming from my FREENATION camp,” Maine shares with us.

The project is cohesive, with Jake J taking over a majority of the project’s production.

After sharing his single “Electric” with Mass Appeal, Maine shares his EP with us, which you can stream below.
