Substantial - 'Jackin' Jill'

Get ready for the brilliantly executed free release from Substantial called, 'Jackin' Jill.' It's easily one of the most inspired and complete projects available right now. It's pretty much perfect in every way.

Two years ago, the prolific DMV writer and educator had a brush with that scary monster called cancer. Thankfully, he was able to get some preventative work done and is now back on the healthy track. During that period, however, he used the time to conceptualize and execute 'Jackin' Jill.' The project, obviously, is a collection of beats based on various Jill Scott samples and Substantial lays his heavy vocals and silky rhymes on top for 17 tracks of pure magic.

"Stan" is greatly inspired by Jill Scott's work and you can hear, see and FEEL the love through every bar and beat of this album. Even the album cover is personally drawn!

'Jackin' Jill' is a fantastic body of work and you NEED this in your playlist. I know my BBQ parties are going to be backed by this all spring and summer. Grab the download below...
