To someone just passing through, Substantial‘s home turf might look like any other ‘hood. To the Baltimore rhymesayer, however, those city blocks are the repository of myriad hopes, dreams, struggles and triumphs. On new single See Hear, he sets out to open listeners’ eyes and ears to the sights and sounds surrounding him on the daily—from the hustlers standing on the corners, to the wail of police sirens, to the families fighting to keep food on the table. After painting a vivid portrait of his urban environment, he shifts gears to lace Algorythm‘s soulful sample work with an account of his own artistic awakening. Singer Steph lends her radiant harmonies to the record’s hook. For this record and mcuh more, check out Sub’s Home Is Where the Art Is LP, executive produced by Booth fave Oddisee and available now via Melo Music Group.
