Intervallum 40 - Throwback To The Olden Days Of Emceeing


















Substantial - To This Union A Sun Was Born

Substantial is another emcee who has definitely paid his dues - from teaming up with Pack FM to open for Heltah Skeltah and Slick Rick, to winning various emcee battle tournaments, to featuring on the “Game Over 2″ compilation alongside such luminaries as KRS, Kane, and Masta Ace - its plain to see that he has put in a lot of hard work. He’s also followed in the footsteps of UK emcee Funky DL, by being one of the few rappers to successfully forge a name for himself in Japan. In fact, this very album outsold albums from Ja-Rule, DMX, Jermaine Dupri, Faith Evans and Angie Stone last year in the far east, and now, with the imminent US release of “To This Union…”, Substantial is hoping to finally break into the home market…
