Picks of the Day – June 8th: Homeboy Sandman and Roc Marciano

This has been an excellent day – Got some ill hip hop today.

Homeboy Sandman – The Good Sun

Lyrics – check.  Beats – check.  Dude is super, super, super nice with the lyrics….one of the best out right now.  And he’s found the right beats to match his sound (which quickly turning into a lost skill.)  He doesn’t try to be different, he just is different – and it’s a unified sound.  Dope, one of my favorite hip hop releases in a while.  He also has a nice free mixtape which you can download on his website – homeboysandman.com – a nice primer.

Roc Marciano – Marcberg

Cohesion.  You really can’t put a dollar amount on it, and this album is as tight and complete as a rap album can get.  You might remember him from some Flipmode or UN stuff.  This is some straight NY street shit – the stuff people have been looking for, for a long, long ass time.  Gutter, lyrical bang out rap.
