Lyrical HipHop Genius and #SpittinInDaWip alumni Homeboy Sandman just dropped a new banger called “Kool Herc Fertile Crescent Out Now” which is a bonus release for his new series of projects that will pay homage to true school HipHop. The beat is produced by Alex ‘Apex’ Gale and it’s the latest in Homeboy Sandman’s tradition of creating an all-new exclusive track to celebrate the release of each new record. Peep the description below via Stones Throw Records:
Homeboy Sandman presents us with Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent, an 8-track release produced entirely by El RTNC (formerly knows as Rthentic – Mos Def / De La Soul). The record is an unapologetic homage to old school hip-hop in its barebones production, lyrical themes, cover art and even the title. With the blessing of DJ Kool Herc, one of the originators of hip-hop, Sandman pays respect to the pioneering DJ by proudly naming the release in his honor.
Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent, from a production standpoint, embodies hip hop’s genesis. Filled with heavy sampling and classic beats, but also has loads of classic rock and world music samples laced into the tracks.
This is the first in a series of records with Homeboy Sandman to be released by Stones Throw through 2013 – each with a distinctive theme, with the MC working with a single producer.
I’m excited to check out this series 4sho, Sandman is one of the best in the game!
