Homeboy Sandman has one of most unique flows and styles in hip hop. His flow, voice, and cadence are easy to differentiate from his contemporaries. But what it is also easy to distinguish is his creativity, his ability to dissect topics, and his marvelous sense of humor. Waiting On My Girl is awesome on so many levels, not the least of which is how relatable to some of us it might be. And the visuals for this track are nothing short of outstanding. Another great video to showcase today. Quelle Chris on the production which again is top notch.
This joint sounds sooooo good to me. There’s always a lot of depth in a Homeboy Sandman’s music simply because of his unorthodox flow but if you couple that fact with this Paul White production then you have the sureshot. Their new collaborative project, White Sands is out now.

There are a lot of dope guest shots but none of them really overshadow what Kyle Rapps has done with this project.

Blessed with all of the intangibles of being a great emcee, Soul Khan in turn blesses us with his first album, Soul Like Khan. Soul Khan has the voice, he has the lyrics, and he is a battle vet in the Grind Time ranks. But does all of that translate into the makings of a great album? The answer is a resounding yes.
