Substantial is a successful world traveled independent artist who hasn't ceased being a champion for BMore. With a warrior spirit and a poets distribution of words he captures the heart of a town that many will never visit in this song. A voice for the people indeed he is. P.S. If you enjoyed this video. Take a minute to Like it and share it!
Not too sure what to make of this one. Hopefully we'll hear something from Mr. Bey discussing what his intent was with this re-purposing.

Intelligent Muzik proudly presents the next single from Wise Intelligent's NEW and highly anticipated 4rd solo album, "Wise Intelligent Iz...EL NEGRO GUERRERO" (The Black Warrior). This is 3rd Period in Wise's "Back to School" Box Set. The album is scheduled to be released EARLY 2013!!!
"I SAID IT" is Wise Intelligent doing the one thing that too many artists today are afraid to do, tell the TRUTH! New Jersey's own Masada has provided an extremely sinister and powerful sonic platform for Wise to lyrically destroy any and all opposition. "I SAID IT" is a giant middle finger to all those who tell us that in order to "get on" and "stay relevant" you must compromise your principles and your message. This visually striking and controversial video was directed by Jimmy Giambrone. It's a proven fact that whenever Wise and Jimmy collaborate on a project something very special happens, and it's guaranteed to leave the viewers amazed, speechless, and satisfied...
This is real rap raw, not for the faint of heart. Add Holly Saucy to your now growing list of incredible female emcees. Yeah like this lady isn't another typical dope rapper that's really not. I suggest you check her discography. Go deeper than just this post. She's got some thangs floating bout the net. Oh yeah. She can sing as well. Solid voice as either emcee or songstress. Yep.
