The Boy Sand might be the most creative rapper rapping right now. Not necessarily the best lyricist, or even the best delivery or the nastiest flow. Sandman's crowning achievement is the fact he doesn't let himself forget that rap can be... anything.
There is nothing written in a pair of stone slabs atop a mountain that says rap music must insult the listener, express flat conceptions of masculinity and femininity, be explicitly self-involved and materialistic. All of those things can make for great rap music and has, but so does the color brown, canned foods and being broke. Those are all themes and ideas Sandman has made banging rap music around.
With that in mind, HBS tackles misconceptions, flat thinking, and other irksome aspects of life as a 30-something rapper, backed by a beat by one of the most slept-on bastions for the boom and advocates of the bap, your man Edan.
