Nitty Scott MC – “We Are One” (Prod. By Large Professor)

Wait… you didn’t think the No Panty move was the only move Nitty was gonna make, did you? This pretty lady has a degree as an emcee (high-level), it’s in the name – Nitty Scott MC. She doesn’t make moves, she engages with gambits. The game’s chess, not checkers!

So, the latest part of her ‘collaborate with the greats’ gambit: How about a team up with Large Professor on some other sh!t? Yeah, how about it is right! Done. Listen up. And the link to “We Are One” (so dope!) is below.

Hubbs – “Buck” feat. Skyzoo (Prod. By M16)

So, y’all may recognize the trackmaster M16 Grammy-nominated Alabama native (Tuscaloosa, Roll Tide, that’s right) – producer of Playaz Circle’s “Duffle Bag Boy” and “I Do” by Jeezy (featuring Andre 3000). And I know followers of this site know Skyzoo. Now, about Hubbs. Nice! From what I could dig up, he’s repping Steel City (Pittsburgh, PA, USA), and he has an album coming out (“Black Privilege”) soon. So, there’s that… and more in this bio he has up on ReverbNation:

Hip-Hop artist, Hubbs, was born in Pittsburgh, PA. His mother, a native resident of the Hill District (Elmore Square) section of Pittsburgh, and father, from Cleveland, OH, moved to Penn Hills, an eastern suburb of Pittsburgh, at this time, to raise their family which also consisted of one older son. Hubbs’ primary inspiration in Hip-Hop, which peaked in the mid 90’s, was influenced by artists and groups such as Notorious B.I.G. and Nas, Jay-Z, Mobb Deep, AZ, The Lox, Wu-Tang Clan, and recalls listening to DJ Clue, Cutmaster C, Ron G, and Doo Wop underground mixtapes. As Hubbs reflects on his beginnings of rhyming, he mentions “I remember my man Sha-King approached me in 9th grade, and asked me and my man Mike if we’d be interested in being in the school talent show with him. Sha-King had been rhyming for years by that point, but Mike and I had only written rhymes on occasion, just out of hobby. But we agreed to, came up with this song over some ill instrumental with this Biggie voice sample in the hook, and killed the talent show. We were on some young don sh*t (laughs), rockin’ trench coats and suits and all that. I had the last verse, and I remember cats in the crowd goin’ nuts when I came out and spit my verse. That’s when I knew I had some talent, and also that I enjoyed rhyming and performing.”

Okay, that ought to be enough to allow you to enjoy this “Buck” joint without having to ‘act’ like you know. Haaa!
