[Mixtape] SUBSTANTIAL - "Jackin' Jill: A Tribute"

Mello Music Group signee and often overlooked emcee Substantial was facing the possibility of cancer. Luckily, he was able to do a preventive surgery which gave him his strength and health back, and also lead to his next project; a tribute to one of his biggest influences, the beautifully voiced soul artist Jill Scott. Hip-hop heads will recognize her unique voice from her work with artists like The Roots, Common, Pharoahe Monch and Lupe Fiasco not to mention her two breakthrough albums which was executively produced by Jazzy Jeff and his A Touch Of Jazz - "Who is Jill Scott?" and "Experience Jill Scott"

All this influenced Substantial to the point of wanting to make a complete album, called "Jackin' Jill" to celebrate the soul goddess, even hand drawing the cover himself. The tribute LP itself is built from "jackin' " music from various Scott releases, creating a collection of reworks and remixes mixed and blended by DJ Jav. The 17 tracks are totally free and if you're really feeling it, a free promotional CD will be sent out to those who pick up the emcee's recent "Home is Where the Art is" on LP or CD. Let's get it on...
