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!

Ron Rico – “Expectations” feat. Skyzoo x Dan Heely

How about that? Aspiration rhyming for real. I mean you got the A$AP movement with Rocky, Ferg and them. But money is at the core of that; and there’s nothing wrong about getting the paper. However, this Ron Rico from Baltimore put “Expectations” together (with Skyzoo & Dan Heely) on some be more than you can see yourself being. Reach for the stars. Feel good rhyme, in a game that us usually about self-aggrandizement, Nice.

Skyzoo – “Hands Folded Together” feat. eLZhi

Dope! And yes, that’s DJ Prince putting ‘hands’ on the track, too (with the loops and drums). “Hands Folded Together” (featuring eLZhi) is some more street heat from the one called Skyzoo. Consider this a ‘digital bonus’ track, as the digital LP “Music For My Friends” does NOT include this jawn; only the cassette and wax, friends.

Skyzoo – “Suicide Doors”

skyzoo-suicide-doorsBrand new banger for the whips with the ‘Suicide Doors’  by Brooklyn emcee Skyzoo! This is that real hip hop ‘ish right here! Dope lyricism from Skyzoo & quality production from the D.C.’s own MarcNfinit. Quality setup record for when Skyzoo’s next full-length project ‘Music For My Friends’ drops on June 23rd.

“I wanted this record to really remind people of what I do as far as entendres go. The double and even triple meanings, the layering, the stacking, I wanted that be the foundation for this song. Being that the album itself is based on storytelling more so than anything else, I wanted to have at least one record where I just let it all fly.”Skyzoo
