Today marks the release of Queens hip-hop artist Homeboy Sandman's latest album, Kindness for Weakness, and in celebration of this, I'm featuring his incredibly dope video for the single "Talking (Bleep)."
The song was produced by Edan, and the lyrics feature Boy Sand airing out some of his grievances, including a set of bars where he eviscerates The Huffington Post for asking him to comment on a wack rapper beef after not accepting one of his articles on a far more serious hip-hop related topic.
I've been featuring Homeboy Sandman here since 2007 (that's not a typo folks!), so you know I'm excited about his latest work. The fact that the video for "Talking (Bleep)" has ninjas in it... well, that's just an added bonus!
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
