Peace World. Soon after the release of my new single, Would You Be Mine ft. Jsoul [Produced by: DJ FlipFlop], various blogs, DJs and artists began spreading it across the internet and had a lot of great things to say about it. One site in particular,, who has shown me a lot of support over the past two years, posted the song to their site as a “Breaking Feature”. This means that you all can continue to show your support by visiting their site (click the image at the top of this post) then taking a minute to RATE & COMMENT on the song.

What happens if all of you take the time to do this?
The song will move to the top of their music charts and be highlighted weekly. This means more exposure for my music and a little less for folks who you see everyday like: Drake, Lil’ Wayne, Jay-Z & Kanye West, etc. (no hate, just stating the obvious) In other words, this is an opportunity to help introduce my music to more listeners.

Here’s how to RATE & COMMENT (It’s easy!):

  1. Click HERE
  2. Locate the “Submit A Review and/or Rating” section toward the center of the page on the lefthand side.
  3. Click the Facebook Login button to login or create a login if you’re not an FB user.
  4. Select how many stars you wish to rate the record and make a brief comments if you’d like. (Comments are optional) I recommend 5 Stars but I’m biased.
  5. Finally, click the “Submit” button, and then share your review on facebook if you’d like and you’re DONE!

Thanks for the continued support. And stay tuned for more details on my upcoming mixtape and Bop Alloy Tour.


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!

Would You Be Mine (featuring Jsoul)

Download (+Instrumental & Art) | Also listen on: Bandcamp | Last.fmSoundCloud | ReverbNation | Youtube 

So you’re back in school, new year, fresh gear and you’ve got your eye on that P.Y.T. you let get away last year. Worry not, add this to her playlist, let Sub do the talking and thank him later! Would You Be Mine, produced by, CunninLynguists disc jockey and Portland native, DJ FlipFlop is an electro-soul hip hop banger featuring the always smooth vocals of Baltimore’s own, Jsoul. Filled with clever wordplay an effortless flow, Substantial delivers once again with his smooth, trademark, baritone vocals.

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.

Stay tuned for more updates on the new mixtape, which will be released in October, and watch out for more information on HIWTAI. Enjoy and pass it on!
