Homeboy Sandman is set to release ‚Hallways‘, his second full-length album on Stones Throw Records.

The prolific Queens MC has been prominently published in Gawker and Huffington Post, plus featured in an array of media outlets such as NPR, Pitchfork and Rolling Stone even naming him as „Artist to Watch.“ Since signing with Stones Throw Records in 2011, Homeboy Sandman has made himself at home releasing a full length ‚First of a Living Breed‘ along with a series of five short records, establishing himself as one of the most productive and creative lyricists of this generation.

homeboy-sandman-kool-herc-fertile-crescent

Homeboy Sandman presents us with „Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent“, an 8-track release produced entirely by El RTNC (formerly knows as Rthentic – Mos Def / De La Soul). The record is an unapologetic homage to old school hip-hop in its barebones production, lyrical themes, cover art and even the title. With the blessing of DJ Kool Herc, one of the originators of hip-hop, Sandman pays respect to the pioneering DJ by proudly naming the release in his honor. Download the track „Dag, Philly Too“ for free here (right click). Digital out now, vinyl ships in May. More about the release on Stones Throw.
