First of a Living Breed

First of a Living Breed by Homeboy Sandman
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Stones Throw Records
This former Queens law student likes interior rhymes. "I gathered my scars in the same battles/ Swam in the same channels," he says on "Rain," a whirl of bleeps and blips produced by Jonwayne. He describes indie stardom on "Not Really" as "hard to keep a low profile in Whole Foods," and writes paranoid verses on "Illuminati" like, "We're all created different/ Some are bad people/ The bald eagle's mad evil." Throughout, he keeps a poker-faced demeanor. Whether or not this means he's fully engaged on First of a Living Breed, his detailed lyrics and beat selection can't be questioned.
