At long last, the album that you’ve all been anticipating is finally here! The first instrumental LP from internationally-known MC, Substantial, is entitled The Garden, and was inspired by a trip to the Bronx Botanic Garden in New York City. Besides being a legendary MC, Sub has always had a talent for production, though it has rarely been displayed on a world-class stage – until now.
This album features a cultivation and array (see what I just did there?) of talent from the likes of Marcus D, Gerson Zaragosa, Malcolm Jackson, Uyama Hiroto, and of course, yours truly, who is featured on the only track that has sung and spoken lyrics, “Beyond The Stage”, which can be heard on this site by clicking on the player below.
You can find and purchase The Garden on all major streaming sites worldwide. Click the photo above to be directed to Substantial’s Bandcamp page with the album.
