Sometimes the path we travel on is clear and straightforward – other times it’s winding and uncertain. On “The Path,” the lead single from his upcoming EP, “the poet,” MC FÜBB expresses the sense of purpose and hope that keeps him focused on his goals despite the unclear road that lies before him. Produced using samples from Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” Toronto-based producer Junia-T (Smash Brovaz) creates a sonically enveloping landscape for FÜBB’s poetic lyrics to shine on. Accompanied by the soulful vocals of Mike Devine, “The Path” is an honest, heart-felt, and ultimately triumphant look into the mind of an artist as he reconciles his life as a hip hop MC who’s committed to walking “the path of a poet.”
“the poet” EP, which is scheduled to drop at the end of October, will be the third official solo non-mixtape album released by Toronto hip hop artist MC FÜBB since 2009. The EP features production by Junia-T, Fresh Kils, MMAC, Justunlimited, Noyz, and NTG and has guest artist appearances by Wordsworth, Relic, Mike Devine, J Shiltz, Bad Newz, DJ Docta, and DJ Uncle Fester.
