Substantial - MLK (Dream Big)

  • Artist: Substantial
  • Track: MLK (Dream Big)
  • Producer: The Other Guys
  • Album: The Past... EP

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous dream of equality may not have come to fruition quite yet, as recent racial incidents have sadly illustrated, but that doesn’t add up to a failure in Substantial’s book. In fact, it’s the lofty scale of the great man’s vision that inspired the Maryland emcee’s latest feature, MLK (Dream Big). On this EP single, project collaborators The Others Guys serve up a light, jazzy instrumental as the Bop Alloy frontman mixes allusions to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s with reflections on his own hustle. The first of three EPs Sub plans to drop in the lead-up to his fourth studio album, The Past Is Always Present in the Future, The Past… EP is slated to drop digitally March 17.
