Waiting For My Kingdom To Come: Dubby’s “Game Of Thrones” showcases MC’s strong flow

Pennsylvania rapper Dubby (a.k.a. Caleb Joyce) is set to put Gettysburg on the map as more than just a Civil War mecca. The kid’s got serious flow, as illustrated by his video for “Game of Thrones,” a track which reminds me rhythmically of Brother Ali, and his ability to speed up and slow down his delivery while maintaining a steady flow. “Collapse the diaphragm / This is a test / Breathe / Stretch / Shake / Mace / Puff / Pass / Rough / Patch / Sandpaper shit / That’s a must have / Pick people for my team who can buff that!”

Collapse the diaphragm
This is a test
Breathe
Stretch
Shake
Mace
Puff
Pass
Rough
Patch
Sandpaper shit
That’s a must have
Pick people for my team that can buff that!
You picked a dude that can jump and that runs fast
That overlaps the one runner who comes last just to run laps
But I’ma pick the dude that was humbled
By having defeated his demon
Look for the heart and never the pride

Sure, the things he says take some mental gymnastics to decipher at times, but the hook is there behind the concept. “Game of Thrones” showcases Dubby as a guy on the way up, looking to build his team from other hungry rappers of his ilk, and once he gets that throne, there’s no one going to take it from him. “I’m just waiting for my kingdom to come,” he sings on the chorus, and by the end of the track you’ll believe — even if just for a moment — that success will eventually find this kid. That kingdom’s gonna come and you heard him here first!
