iTunes Review

Probably best known for his 2008 album Sacrifice, as well as his jazzed-out side project Bop Alloy (with Marcus D), Maryland emcee Substantial returns with a new, largely autobiographical project overseen by the much-loved producer Oddisee. Uninterested in high-end flossing or glamorizing thuggish buffoonery, he prefers to rhyme about family situations ("Make Up Sex" and "Umoja"), as well as the triumphs and tragedies of city living ("See Hear," "Neighborhood Watch"). Down with both QN5 and Mello Music Group, he enlists a gang of quality collaborators, including Steph the Sapphic Songstress, Deacon the Villain (from CunninLynguists), DJ G.I. Joe, and Kenn Starr. The beats are consistently chill, mid-tempo, and sample-heavy, the ideal backdrop for Sub's highly relatable everyman vibe. While not likely to fill up the dance floor anytime soon, this is simply good, straightforward hip-hop from an underrated dude who's been steadily making music for more than a decade.

Rise Up From The Rubble

Substantial's biggest album to date. When Oddisee told me he executive produced the whole thing (not to mention arranged and mixed it), I was on board. Add to it production from M-Phazes (Grateful & The Verge) and Eric Lau (Resilient) among others?! Congrats to Substantial on a powerful, uplifting record.

This is HIP-HOP!!

been waiting for this album for a long time. standout tracks are "Check my Resume" and "Make up Sex".

Listen you will not be mad. solid album the whole way thru!

Brilliant!!!

Ordered mine off itunes last night. You gotta rewind Substantial, the lyrical content is so robust....truly substantial!! The album is laden with deep introspective and philosophical thoughts like those of a modern sage. This is a magnificent and inspiring work.

Will be bumping this joint all fall!!! But definitely a classic!

Home Is Where The Art Is - Classic!!!!

Oh yeah, beats are insane!!!!!
