Stones Throw Records also just released yet another album by the incredibly prolific Homeboy Sandman album. Produced by El Rntc, Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent is Sandman’s unapologetic homage to the godfather of hip hop himself, DJ Kool Herc, and to old skool hip hop – we’re talking about cover art that resembles the cover art of the hip hop’s early days; barebones production; and even lyrical content. Still Sandman can (and does) rhyme about anything and the track is so dope that it’s worthy of repeated listens to catch him and his witty lines. “Dag, Philly Too,” the latest single from the 8 track effort employs one of the smoothest, old school breakbeats you’ve heard in quite some time.
