EastEnders' Max Branning has released a rap track and it's everything we wanted
EastEnders character Max Branning has released a rap track. Well, sort of. The popular soap character has inspired a new song called ‘The Real Max Branning’, which celebrates the Walford legend’s womanising reputation.
A lookalike fan got in touch with actor Jake Wood – who portrays Max on the BBC serial drama – to ask his permission to write a song called ‘The Real Max Branning’.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Jake said: ‘There’s a guy who has written a song called ‘The Real Max Branning’.
‘He tweeted me a while ago to ask, ‘Are you all right if I do a song about you?’ His name is Sir Dossa and he DM’d me on Twitter ages ago. He said, ‘Hi Jake, random one but I’m working on a new tune called ‘The Real Max Branning’ because people say I look like you.’
‘It’s based on my likeness to your character. I’m using a couple of samples, just wanted to check you don’t mind?’
The rap track has now been made available on Spotify and it includes samples of Max’s lines — such as ‘was she fit?’ and ‘such a geezer, aint ya’.
Some of the lyrics in the track are: ‘shout out to the geezer Max to the B, Max Branning / Mind your wives and daughters, always on the jars never on the waters’.
Jake was delighted with the finished product. He said: ‘A few days ago he sent me another DM saying the tune is done, it’s all uploaded to Spotify.”I think my favourite line in it is ‘putting gingers on the map’. It’s a bit of light relief.’
EastEnders continues Monday 30 March at 8pm on BBC One.
