Homeboy Sandman Makes An Oceanic Cut Over Some ’70s-Tastic Blu Production (Audio)
Two of the most versatile voices in the contemporary Underground Hip-Hop world are Homeboy Sandman and Blu. Running in similar circles (Stones Throw Records, Sene, etc.), the pair comes together nicely on “Atlantis.” H.B.S. states why underwater is the place to be, given some of the goings-on to be found on dry land. Blu supplies a beat that sounds straight out the late ’60s Norman Whitfield era of Motown Records. It might not make sense on paper, but it works.
Hopefully more is to come from these two prolific MCs who honor the rich tradition in Hip-Hop known as originality.
