This week’s Vid Pick isn’t a music video, but rather a video about a musician. Longtime B-Lister Substantial decided in January to get a haircut. For many of us that’s a decision we make every month or two. For Substantial, it was a decision he hadn’t made in over a decade. In this clip he discusses what his locs have meant to him over the years, and why he decided to cut them. He also tells a terrifying story about how his hair almost murdered him.
For more on Substantial check out these shockingly old interviews:
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
