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


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!


DON’T SLEEP: Homeboy Sandman f/YC The Cynic & I Am Many “Easy Does It” (prod. by M Slago) [SINGLE]


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: Karriem Riggins “Alone Together” [INSTRUMENTAL PROJECT]

Karriem Riggins is one of the best drummers in Hip-Hop and one of the best on Earth. If you follow me on Twitter you caught my discussion of the best drummers in Hip-Hop that Jon Laine, Inka One & J. Medeiros added to. In any event, Karriem Riggins is also an amazing producer and half of Supreme Team with Madlib. His new project “Alone Together” on Stones Throw has been long awaited and highly anticipated (no, for real) and it’s finally here. You can cop this 34 slap monster called “Alone Together” direct from Stones Throw, iTunes, Amazon, Fat Beats or UGHH. Don’t sleep on it!
