Substantial – “See Hear” Video

12.04.12 5 years ago 2 Comments

Pardon the obvious pun, but there’s plenty to see and hear in the black and white visuals for Substantial’s “See Hear.” Director Rel uses Sub’s hometown of Baltimore as the backdrop for one juxtaposition after another, depicting the suffering and the success, the derelict and the gentrified, and perhaps the most striking combination, the hopelessness and the optimism.

Even as Substantial chronicles the hardships faced over the steady snares and more lenient vocals, there is a feeling of assurance that everything will work out. The Mello Music Group rapper’s trust in the city and the people of it is evident, and even adds to the enjoyment of the track that is found on Home Is Where The Art Is, which can be streamed in its entirety here.
