Not since the days of Nasty Nas has an unsigned artist developed such a following and anticipation for a debut album, not since Pharoahe Monch has an MC taken so much pride on lyrics and not since MF DOOM has an MC been so original without trying.
Enter Queens, NY MC Homeboy Sandman and his official debut album “The Good Sun”. This album is the culmination of several independently released projects and years of ripping stages all over the country alongside some of Hip Hop’s biggest names (The Roots, Souls Of Mischief, Talib Kweli).
The album, his 1st on indie powerhouse High Water Music, boast some of his most personal material to date plus some of the best producers at the moment. Tracks like “The Carpenter” showcase Homeboy Sandman on full emcee mode. With his spit rapid flow Sandman shows that you can have fun while demolishing a track. “Being Haved” produced by DJ Spinna shows Sandman in story telling mode as he narrates a fun story of an everyday kid growing up. “Yeah But I Can Rhyme Though” produced by Ski Beatz is a third person narrative questioning Sandman about his career.
Also along for the ride and behind the boards are Ski Beatz (Jay-Z, Camp Lo), DJ Spinna (Stevie Wonder, Eminem, Michael Jackson), Psycho Les (Beatnuts, Mos Def) and underground heroes 2 Hungry Bros plus new comers Core Rhythm and KO Beatz. On the mic, the album boasts appearances by Fresh Daily, John Robinson and Daniel Joseph.
