Back in 2011 Baltimore emcee Substantial was facing the possibility of cancer. He ended up having preventive surgery and while laid up, decided to start working on a tribute album to Jill Scott, one of his biggest influences. It was his was of staying busy while healing, and at the same time to give the people their roses while they can still smell them. The result is a free project Substantial calls Jackin‘ Jill – a tribute project from Substantial built by „Jackin“ music from various Jill Scott releases. This collection of reworks and remixes of her work blended by DJ Jav form a cohesive pseudo collaboration focused on life, love & music
Zwei Jahre nach diesem Ereignis zeigt Substantial das selbstgemalte Cover und die erste Singleinterpretation von Stevie Wonders Innervisions. Das dürfte ein sehr interessantes Projekt werden!
