HiPNOTT Records was proud to announce Thursday (9.4.2014) that they have signed a multi-project deal with Maryland MC Substantial. This deal solidifies Substantial as a HiPNOTT recording artist & enables him to be one of the premier artists on the label.
“Signing Substantial to HiPNOTT was a no brainer. Along with talent and experience, Substantial brings a big fanbase with him to the label. He has a very genuine personality and his style fits in perfectly with what we represent at HiPNOTT. We welcome him to the family with open arms!” -Kevin Nottingham, owner of HiPNOTT Records.
As a 13-year veteran in Hip Hop, Substantial is probably best known for his work with legendary Japanese producer Nujabes & his duo Bop Alloy with Marcus D. He has collaborated with the likes of Oddisee, Kool Herc, Cunninlynguists, Bootsy Collins, & many more. His 2012 album, ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ (Mello Music Group), was revered by hip hop fans worldwide.
In 2015, look out for a trio of EPs to be released from Substantial; each produced by different producers. Closing out the year will be his next official full length album.
