[Audio] SUBSTANTIAL: “Would You Be Mine?” ft. Jsoul

Here’s a fresh new joint from Substantial (QN5 Music/The Plague), “Would You Be Mine?” feat. Jsoul. Produced by DJ FlipFlop.

WYBM, is the 1st leak from Substantial’s upcoming FREE concept mixtape, which he’s been keeping under-wraps since he first mentioned it in May, while recovering from his surgery.  Originally, WYBM was to be featured on Sub’s 3rd solo album, Home Is Where The Art Is, but was cut soon after the name change.

Peace World. So, as promised, I graciously present new music for all of you who helped me reach over 1200 subscribers on Youtube. In fact, since I asked for your help last week, my channel has gained a little over 100 new subscribers! Thanks for helping to get the word out. Now it’s my turn to return the favor! – SUBSTANTIAL
