“Check My Resume” is just one of the tracks on DMV rapper Substantial‘s latest album Home Is Where the Art Is. The artist from Maryland’s Prince George’s County looks to build upon the success he had with his second album, Sacrifice, and his debut album, To This Union A Sun Was Born. His debut album, released in 2001, reached the top 10 in Japan and kicked off a tour of North America, Asia and Europe. Substantial pairs up with fellow Mello Music Group emcee and producer Oddissee on “Check My Resume,” as well as several other songs on the album.
The album is set for a Sept. 4 release, but if you can’t wait to listen to other tracks, drop by Liv, Aug. 23 for the album release party featuring live performances from Substantial, Oddissee, Gods’illa, XO and YU from Diamond District and Javier Starks.
DJ Jav is also featured on this single, where Substantial acquaints listeners to the experience of who he is and where he’s going. Is he “qualified?” Is he “certified?” According to Substantial, yep. Check out his skills, and let u know if you agree.
