Although it took nearly eleven months, Homeboy Sandman is back at the DopeHouse with the release of his first album of the year, Dusty.
Produced entirely by Mono En Stereo (who’s worked with the likes of Mos Def and Action Bronson), the two follow-up their Kool Herc EP with a full-length effort that thoroughly embraces their impulses and desires.
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. On Dusty, he says “ I unlocked myself and let them out — dusted them off — for better or for worse.”
Locked in at 15 tracks, including “Lookout” with Quelle Chris and Your Old Droog, the album can be heard below. Press play and be sure to add Dusty on your preferred streaming platform.
