DON’T SLEEP: Homeboy Sandman x M Slago “All That I Hold Dear” [NEW ALBUM]

ALLTHATIHOLDDEAR

This 7 song EP comes courtesy of Homeboy Sandman (The Good Sun, First Of A Living Breed & Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent) & Team PIK producer M Slago (Rampage EP, Attack The Wack, Let Me Holla At Ya, Let Me Holla At Ya Too & Negro Please) who he worked with previous to his signing to Stones Throw. Homeboy Sandman had recorded quite a few tracks over M Slago’s production over the years but he hadn’t released any of them as he maintained his prolific release schedule. This August Homeboy Sandman and M Slago’s collaborations led to the Stones Throw digital release of All That I Hold Dear.

All That I Hold Dear features guest appearances from MED & Gab Goblin and Homeboy Sandman and M Slago’s production perfectly compliment each other. All That I Hold Dear can be copped in digital form from iTunes (for only $3.99) and Amazon.  It can also be purchased directly from Stones Throw. The song “Runts” dedicated to his niece & nephew & Slago’s son is a favorite of mine. Physical copies of All That I Hold Dear will be available on September 9th, 2013. Don’t sleep on it!

Way back in 2011 I met Homeboy Sandman in Brooklyn & he told me he had more work with M Slago coming soon. A couple of months ago I was talking to M Slago about his Negro Smiling “Negro Please EP” & his “Let Me Holla At Ya Too” PIK release when he informed me that Stones Throw would be releasing an EP of Homeboy Sandman material produced entirely by him called “All That I Hold Dear”. The release date and details are all forthcoming but here’s a single from Homeboy Sandman featuring YC The Cynic & I Am Many produced by M Slago titled “Easy Does It” that’s not on the aforementioned project. Salute to Skye of Skyyhook Radio for the heads up. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Eddie Moore & The Outer Circle “The Freedom Of Expression” [NEW PROJECT]

3238052411-1

The copy on the Rappers I Know Bandcamp reads as follows in regards to this particular project:

“The Outer Circle investigates modern influences with those of tradition. Saturated with color, the melodies are lyrics that share my life experiences with the listener. I enjoy using mixed meter in composition to introduce twist and turns to the canvas creating a different mood with every piece that allows the soloist the upmost freedom with line and idea. With original compositions like “Houston Visions” and “Anger Management” this group blends that of the American Idiom with Freedom of Expression.”
