Homeboy Sandman "Dusty" (Album Stream)


"Picasso claimed that the purpose of art is to wash the “dust of daily life off our souls.” Homeboy Sandman asks on Dusty, “Why would I complain when I’m alive making art?” In the course of his Mello Music debut, the Queens virtuoso answers himself with 15 soul-assessing confessionals that sweep the entropy and daily static, the distortion and psychic silt of modern life onto wax. This is sacred dust, alchemical practice to convert anxiety into the highest form of creativity. It is rapping ass-rapping rapped better than your favorite rapper. Let Sandman tell it: the sound is dusty. These bars are his id. He’s not trying to save the world on this record or even save himself. These are the unmasked impulses and desires locked away for a long time - some of them from before he ditched the legal world for decapitating mediocre MCs.... Rap containing multitudes and cosmic dust. Exact as a science, loose as an improvised spiritual." - MMG. Enjoy Homeboy Sandman's Dusty LP below...
