“Stop trying to look tough / Tough doesn’t have a look / Tough people know that / If you don’t know that you must be shook”
If Hip-Hop were a neighborhood, Homebody Sandman would be the new age OG on the stoop, kicked back with ease and a brew, shaking his head at the half-minded passerbys who try way too hard. On his new single “Give You The World,” this cultured Queens MC delivers an analysis on the status quo these days, slighting everything from strip club love and staged rap personas to social media and useless cops with his always atypical delivery.
Tying together his honest insight with producer KNX’s meditating instrumental, the Stones Throw pen poet delivers an unwavering single that should leave uneasy rap fans amped for his upcoming All That I Hold Dear album in August.
In the meantime, catch Homeboy in your neck of the woods on his bi-coastal, summer-long tour (see the dates/cities here).
