MCMI Report: Watch Substantial Perform in the 2017 Ford Fusion (Commercial)

MCMI Report: Watch Substantial Perform in the 2017 Ford Fusion (Commercial)

MCMI Report: This just in! Mid Atlantic Ford Dealers got MCMI affiliated rapper Substantial into one of their new vehicles and he made magic! Okay, this is taking “spittin’ in the whip” to the next level. Et first I was like “Oh cool. The homie Substantial (member of The Plague, Fanomm, Bop Alloy & Ef@mm) did a FORD commercial. But when I watch it, it’s more like Ford did a Substantial commercial! It’s all about him, growin’ up in DC and Baltimore, his daughter and his career as an artist. And he does spit a verse, all while driving around in a Ford Fusion.

MCMI Report: Watch Substantial Perform in the 2017 Ford Fusion

Earlier this summer, Substantial’s song The Sub Way was chosen by UBER for their #UberSummerSeries campaignThey used the beat and hook to promote the second installment of the Uber Summer Concert Series, presented by Perrier and Hotel Indigo, but the video was of a rooftop concert featuring the artist Yuna (big up to her).

Now FORD is using The Sub Way in their commercial. The commercial and the full song are featured prominently on FordMusic.com. I’m thinking with TWO billion dollar companies wanting to use this song, it obviously strikes a chord with them and with the public.

This is a great look for Substantial who just released the Present [EP] with producer Marcus D, available on iTunes and Bandcamp [Explicit] & [Clean]. You can stream both on Spotify.

He also has a new shirt out, called the Eclipse #BackToLyrics T-shirt from Substantial & HiPNOTT Records, featuring artwork that includes lyrics from Nujabes‘ song ‘Eclipse‘ featuring Substantial from the 2005 album ‘Modal Soul‘. The digital artwork was designed by Substantial himself. Shirts availabe here. Modal Soul album here.

With so much going on, you might want to sign up for updates on Stan’s new Fanbridge Action Page, where you can ask him questions (and he actually answers them!), connect with him on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Soundcloud, Spotify and more.

Besides Wayna, the album will also feature Tonedeff (QN5), DC based singer/songwriter Deborah Bond, Danish singer/songwriter/producer Fjer, and Marcus D, from Bop Alloy. All this combined with Substantial’s thought provoking lyrics and Algorhythm’s amazing production should make for a pretty slammin’ album!

Bop Alloy (Substantial & Marcus D) – Autumn Leaves f. PISMO


BOP ALLOY

Bop Alloy, a group made up of lyricist Substantial & producer Marcus D, officially release their latest single, Autumn Leaves, with vocals by Pismo, off the album Another Day in the Life of… .

Inspired by Gordon Park’s book To Smile In Autumn, Substantial talks about “setting new goals” after reaching those from his youth as his life “approaches the Autumn years.” I don’t know about “Autumn Years“, lol, Stan is in his 30’s. That’s not too old. I guess if you are counting in Hip Hop years, it could be. Then again, more than half of my favorite rappers are over 40 (Jay Z, Naz, Eminem, BustaRhymes, Mos Def, Common, etc) and still going strong. But I understand his sentiment. As we mature our outlook on life changes. We accomplish many goals, discard some, as we realize we don’t want the same things in life as we did when we were teenagers. We progress. We grow. At least that’s how it’s supposed to be.

 

SubstantialIt’s like I reached that point where many folk lives get froze

Instead I’m busy living most of my childhood goals

Never stagnant, forever I’ll strive for more

This elevator’s barely above the bottom floor – Substantial

Autumn Leaves is from Bop Alloy’s critically acclaimed 2nd album, Another Day in the Life of… available as a Limited Edition EP version on 12″ vinyl.

Also available on CD, iTunes, & Spotify.

The Winter Breaks  Digital-Only EP drops this December 2014. Stay tuned.
