The special features MAX – one of MTV’s “Artists to Watch” – sharing stories of growing up in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood while his career begins to take off, auditioning for a modeling campaign with Madonna and catching the attention of Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz with the singer-songwriter’s self-released music. The film closes with the release of his debut album, a catchy mix of pop, soul, R&B and rap that has been called “pure musical seduction” by Idobi Radio.
Following the premiere tonight on MTV Live, the film will re-air at 12am midnight and again on Saturday, June 11th at 3pm ET/ 2pm CT. Fans can also catch ‘Hell’s Kitchen Angel’ on MTV Hits Saturday, June 11th through Monday, June 13th, airing at 6am, 2pm, 10pm and 4am ET.
