Substantial (of Bop Alloy) - Splendor

Posted 2 years ago
Satellite 12

Recently, Bop Alloy member and 13-year hip-hop veteran Substantial was signed to HiPNOTT Records—a decision which label owner Kevin Nottingham referred to as a “no-brainer.” If you’re not sure what all the fuss is about, well, you clearly haven’t been paying close attention to the Booth. But you can get a taste of the Maryland emcee’s prodigious skills on aptly-named loosie Splendor, his first release since inking the deal. Beat duo Satellite 12 flips a light, soulful sample from Rasa’s Everything You See Is Me as Substantial flaunts his agile flow and taunts his opponents in witty, allusive verses. This joint isn’t attached to a larger set but, rest assured, we’ll keep you posted on Sub’s plans as he embarks on the latest chapter of his career.
