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.

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.

MCMI Report: Jason Spirit – You Make Me Shine (Video) Directed by Jarrett Robertson

Jason Spirit - You Make Me Shine

MCMI Report: Jason Spirit – You Make Me Shine – debut single and video


Although I usually write about Hip Hop music, like most Hip Hop heads its not the only type of music I listen to. As a musician myself, who grew up on Folk, Classical, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Blues and Classic Rock, I have very eclectic musical tastes. As a producer and songwriter, I know a great song, regardless of genre. As a flautist (oh, you didn’t know? … check me on this track Freedom, with Chordz Cordero), I also can appreciate a good melody. Well Jason Spirit, a singer / songwriter of incredible talent and passion, embodies all of the above.

MCMI Report: Jason Spirit - You Make Me ShineI guess I decided to write about Jason Spirit, because of his unique style, the likes of which you don’t come across often. His songs are incredibly soulful, yet universal. The Brooklyn native’s lyrics are honest and real. And he has the guts to break out a flute solo in the middle of what could potentially be a pop record! There are very few popular singers who also play an instrument and take extended solo breaks on the middle of a song. In a performance? Sure. But on the record? We used to hear it all the time. That’s something we are missing these days and its a sound for sore ears.MCMI Report: Jason Spirit - You Make Me Shine

As is his flute. His playing falls somewhere between Ian Anderson and Hubert Laws. His music has a Jamiroqui meets The Police feel to it, soul-stirring and danceable at the same time. His singing – all Jason. Although he has done some writing, producing and playing for various bands and on some dance records in the past, this is his solo debut. It’s also his first music video, directed by Jarrett Robinson (RhythmandBleu), who really brings out Jason’s cool spirit (pun intended), with breathtaking outdoor visuals.

You can hear this song plus three others he is previewing, on his website jasonspiritmusic.com and catch him live at the world famous Blue Note jazz club in NYC, on January 29th, at 12-midnight. Advance tickets only $10, more the day of the show.
