“[Sacrifice] is an organic labor of love that’s remarkable in its focused alignment and enlightened command of self…[it] is a raw exultation; an animated celebration of love in some of its truest forms: the love of your craft, a significant other and of slicing away opponents one bar at a time. Sacrifice is a robust package soaked in passion, pain and promise.” -Andrea Boston, eMusic

“The title of DC rapper Substantial’s sophomore LP is a bit of a tease. Sacrifice indicates a loss or trade-off of one thing for another, but Substantial spares virtually nothing on the album, establishing himself as a complete MC and bright young talent.”84/100 -Martin Caballero, Okayplayer.com [READ FULL REVIEW]

“From the desperation of hood life described in “Hood Hope”, to the struggle of a modern working class family illustrated in “Labor Pains”, Substantial doesn’t look past the challenges we face and simply rap about “chains and ho’s”“, but uses his musical forum to educate and inspire the listener.”4/5 -DJ Pizzo, HipHopSite.com [READ FULL REVIEW]
