With a name like Cubbiebear, you’d think the Baltimore emcee raps about hugs and stuffed animals. You’d be wrong. If his music is any indication, Cubbiebear chose his name to set himself as far apart as possible from all the ‘Lils’s and ‘Young’s out there. His new single, The Hulk, is as un-mainstream as you can get. Lyrically, he’s all over the place, cramming a glut of words into each disjointed line. The frenzied hook is equally incoherent (although not nearly as verbose), featuring some hyperactive scratches and what sounds like alien babble. The stuttering beat, also the work of Cubbiebear, makes the song all the more hectic and all the more fresh. The Hulk appears on his debut album, The Rape.
