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.
