Inspiration can come from many sources, but when one of those sources is the glorious songstress Ms. Jilly from Philly aka Jill Scott, you have to make a song about her and that’s just what DMV rapper Substantial did with “Golden Lady”. Coming out of the MMG crew (no not Ross’ spot, but the Mellow Music Group), Substantial gives us that feel good about feeling good vibe that is missing from the tunes today. He’s gone through a lot, (beating cancer among other things) and has used his connection to Jill Scott’s music and poetry as a saving grace in his life. Check the track and his latest album Home Is Where The Art Is on iTunes.
Oh by the way, he did the cover art for this track as well.
Bonus Track: “Spilled Milk”
