The code of the beat.

Check This: Hubbs – “May Day” (Prod. by M16)


Pittsburgh emcee flows over M16’s smooth sample-based beat.

Pittsburgh has a knack for unearthing talent. Hubbs is the latest emcee to catch my attention. “May Day” is the first release off his upcoming collaborative LP, 20sixteen, with renowned hip hop producer M16. M16 is the producer behind Young Jeezy hit, “I Do,” and Playaz Circle’s “Duffle Bag Boy” track. We can expect to hear the LP this summer, but thankfully “May Day” dropped last month on Taylor Gang DJ Motor Mane’s Motor Muzik project. Produced by M16, “May Day” is a smooth sample-based beat with a laid back feel befitting of Hubbs’ rhyme flow. If “May Day” is any indicator, I expect 20sixteen to do well this summer.

The music and video below is presented here for the purpose of scholarship.
