Houston’s hip hop world has definitely been on the grow for the past five years, so much so that acts who you thought had left this city have returned to drop new material. Houston’s Kyle Hubbard came back a couple of years ago and has been on a mission to regain the acclaim and praise he had before leaving for Arkansas a couple of years ago. On his new single, “Point of Life,” found exclusively here, Hubbard definitely showcases that his strong mic spitting skills weren’t lost while he was away.
The lead single off of his latest release, All Good Things Come, is due to out on Sept. 18. In the new single Hubbard definitely wastes no time in hitting the mic with the precision and skills he’s become known for. The chopped and screwed opening coupled with the catchy beat and Hubbard’s flow all make for a track that would sound best blasting from the trunk of any H-town whip. While the MC has always had skills on a mic, here he sounds fresher than he has in years without changing things up too much. Doubled vocals and production by DJay Cas, Hubbard definitely teases what’s to come from his full length while giving you a jam you can easily sink you teeth into while blasting it on repeat.
You can feel free to place this track on repeat, as well as pre-order a copy of Hubbard’s new album, All Good Things Come, here. All of the proceeds from the album will go to Mayor Turner’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. You can hear the album early when Hubbard headlines the release party on Saturday, Sept. 16 at The Secret Group. The all-ages show has sets from Jody Seabody & the Whirls, Big Piph and DJ Discipline, with doors at 8 pm and a $10 cover.
