Bop Alloy - They Got The Jazz

Substantial was one of my original Artists Of The Week when I started this feature back in 2006. Since then he’s gotten married, moved from Brooklyn back to his original home of Maryland, release a couple albums, and had a child. The one thing I don’t think he’s done is sleep, because even with all that going on he still found the time to link up with Seattle producer Marcus D to create Bop Alloy. This week I caught up with both Substantial and Marcus D to find out more about the Bop Alloy project, including how they came together for it, the musical direction it goes in that will have longtime Substantial fans cheering, and why they’re so big in Japan.

MP3: Shaun Scales - "Got It"

From Yo! PR:

MP3: Shaun Scales - "Got It"


Chicago MC Shaun Scales is back with the second single "I Got It" from his debut mixtape "Yours Truly".

"Yours Truly," the debut solo effort from the north side Chicago native, was released on October 4th, 2010 and the emcee's first single from the mixtape, "City Of Men," is in heavy rotation. Produced by Boonie Mayfield, this is the announcement, the introduction, the manifesto of a rapper who has a lot to give and even more to gain.

Scales introduced the world to his city from his vantage point with the first single "City Of Men" from "Yours Truly" and now he is back with the second release titled "I Got It."

On this subdued track, Scales shows his lyrical chops and controlled vocals over the haunting production of The Mic. Showcasing a lot of bravado and good natured posturing, Shaun challenges his naysayers with a taunting and clever hook layered perfectly under his rebellious flow.

For this young star, the design of music structure is all about self expression and the method of operation for giving his voice to the masses.

"I have a voice that people should hear. A lot of my songs are stories. Shaun Scales is an artist that people want to hang out with. I’m the next door neighbor."

Album info and concept:

The album project titled High Wire Act is a creative album and the sequel to the Circus World Event..The Ringleader Album.  The High Wire represents the High Wire Act that tight rope walkers walk and balance on during the circus show.  The High Wire also represents the narrow bridge road that leads to eternal life which believers in Christ must walk as spoke of in the bible, and in order to balance on that wire, we need Jesus Christ as our balancing pole.  The High Wire Act also displays other messages such as humility, being on top, while CY brings a high level of energy with tracks produced by CY, Phillip Moore, Tony Stone,  Vohn Beats, Jim Natural and more.  Guest artist are Young Joshua, Tony Stone, One Dose, Von Won, FireJaws, Gina V., Tannie, Ish, Gifted, Tre9, Kent & Shellee Coley, Manni-Starz, MiKalibur, Titus, D.Steele, and more.....
