Homeboy Sandman is a Queens based emcee who was signed to Stones Throw Records for good reason. The former law school student and teacher has entered the rap game with vigilance, a choice that hip hop fans across the world are currently celebrating. This video is a moment in time with the emcee, where he goes in on everything from his father’s days as a Golden Gloves boxer to dropping out of law school to writing rhymes while stoned versus straight.
The album First of a Living Breed drops September 18th. It will feature production from ZIF favorites Oddisee and Jon Wayne. Scope the tracklist after the jump.
Shout Out to Stones Throw for the heads up on this new mixtape from Jon Wayne which dropped today. I did find it amusing that they still advertise that these mixtapes are free, I mean, what’s not free nowadays?According to his Facebook page it looks like he was supposed to drop this on Friday, but was itching to shed it off his hard drive, and dropped it today like a G on Mediafire, Stones Throw quickly swooped in and had directed most downloads to their server. This guy is a personal fave of mine, his beat selection on this mixtape is a big reason why, who wouldn’t like a FlyLo bootleg. Peep the tracks below and see if you want to download it son, for FREE! That first track “whatarewegonnacallit” is dope fiyah.
