Homeboy Sandman is definitely not your average emcee. While his peers’ subject matter usually revolves around money, clothes and hoes, Boy Sand rather spit about topics that are a little more obscure or socially relevant.
Sandman’s Stones Throw Records debut, First Of A Living Breed, drops on Sept. 18 and is packed with the aforementioned diverse topics, complex rhyme patterns, otherworldly flows and top-notch production, making it one of the most original releases of 2012.
Mass Appeal got an exclusive snippet-style preview of the album from Homeboy Sandman himself. In this first installment watch as he gives us samples of seven of the album’s songs while we follow him through the streets of New York. Watch for the part two of our exclusive video preview later this week.
