New York rhyme – twister Homeboy Sandman is one of the freshest new talents in hip hop and the latest signing to the Stones Throw roster, a natural fit as Sand is one of the best pure lyricists around. A voice against fraudulent politicians, relationship miscues, and the inevitable haters hating because he was “down to skip a meal or two.”
Homeboy’s reputation the hip-hop world as a rapper with a penchant for weaving witticism into even his most serious messages. In fact, Rolling Stone, who recently branded him an “artist to watch,” praised him as being an MC with a “skill for wordplay that keeps you hooked.” He’s built a super solid reputation without conforming to the music industry’s rules of engagement. He’ll release songs with no hooks, deliver three verses in the short attention span era, rhyme about societal ills without pause, paying no mind to a radio format. In a sense, he’s an Original’s original. Homeboy’s musical journey began after dropping out of Law School after three years to pursue a career in rap, so you can see why his perspective might be a little different from your typical rapper…
Now with support from Paper Tiger! Paper Tiger began life many years ago as a teenage bedroom experiment in suburban Wolverhampton: electronically-produced music incorporating live instruments and musicians. Since then the project has gone from strength to strength, with their early demos gaining support from Radio 1, 1xtra and 6Music. Their free releases, and remixes of DELS (Big Dada), Stac and Scrimshire (Wah Wah 45s), Sneaky (Big Chill) and Dark Sky (Black Acre/Ninja Tune) have been met with universal acclaim. Their new single HS will be out on Wah Wah 45s next year. Watch out for that one!
