Peace World. The latest single from Home Is Where The Art Is

As seen on 2DopeBoyz & Kevin Nottingham

Umoja is Swahili for Unity and is also the the first principle of Kwanzaa which is today, Dec. 26th. Each verse of the song touches on relationships Substantial has developed over the years. His marriage/family & community. The message of the song is making the world around us better by simply working “together”.

Home Is Where The Art Is in stores now |

Peace World. Last month, Marcus D & I headed to Japan for 2 shows. The 1st was is Tokyo and the 2nd took place in Kyoto, where we were special guests at the homie M.I.Z.’s album release party.

This is video footage from the event which includes M.I.Z’s set and brief shots of the performers including our folks DJ Asu, Rakabee, DJ Yossy and many more. My man K.I.C.E. even dropped in to perform our joint Redemption Song! Definitely a night to remember.

Enjoy the footage and see how folks get down in the land of the rising sun!

Stay in Peace.
