A track from the new 6-track EP from New York's Homeboy Sandman. He's got a pretty bold description for it, too: “6 rap songs with content no one has ever rapped about before in the history of rap music. Unfortunately not a very difficult thing to do.”
I dunno about that. I'm not saying everything's been said, and I do agree that hip hop has come clear lyrical cliches, but does Sandman bring my mind to newer lyrical planes? Well, sorta, I guess. He's definitely got some eccentric verses, loaded with straight bars of odd references and a variety lyrical topics.
