Substance Abuse: A Powerhouse Duo From Los Angeles


From notable styles and a stunning stage presence, Substance Abuse’s music is standing out as an entity all its own. The quality of art, music, and dedication put forth by these industrious artists has definitely made a mark and impact on the music community. It won’t be long before you hear Substance Abuse’s music nationwide and internationally. Major moves are being made by these amazing talents.

Coming straight out of the City of Angels, Los Angeles, CA, Subz and Eso Tre are the powerhouse duo that make up Substance Abuse. “When we put out our first underground tape in 1998 titled Brand New Crime with a super dope group titled, our main goal was just to have some sort of tangible product out there. If you told us we would eventually be working with people like MC Eiht and KRS-One, I don’t think we would have ever believed it in our wildest dreams,” Eso Tre reflects on how their career has developed.

According to Subz, moving forward the duo seeks to kick start a touring Substance Abuse Music Festival that bridges the gap between the legends that influenced hip hop, the OGs in the game, and the newer artists who are doing it the right way. “I think the tour Subz is alluding to is far overdue. I think we’ve both had experiences where people came us to and gave us props. Our goal is to keep doing what we’ve been doing, but reach more people. Touring will help to accomplish that,” Eso Tre adds.
