At the very least, we can always get a sense of consistency along with Homeboy Sandman. Despite not releasing a full-length project last year, we still got a string of loosies in the last half of the year, solid features and a free EP, LICE, released with Aesop Rock to cap the year off. Last week, the Queens native reintroduced himself to us with his first drop of 2016, “Life Support,” where he expressed how his art and music are quite literally his lifeline.
All of this has led up to The Homeboy Sand’s new album, Kindness For Weakness. The project is set to drop via Stones Throw May 6, and today, we get the first single, “Talking (Bleep).” Homeboy described the album’s theme as focusing on “mistaking kindness for weakness is a weakness I need to have more kindness for” and will have features from Aesop Rock, Large Professor, Jonwayne, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Paul White and more over its 14 tracks.
