Homeboy Sandman and friends
Not counting a May 3rd show at Cornell, rapper Homeboy Sandman will kick off a North American tour in Nashville on June 4th and hit Santos Party House in NYC on June 12th with The Difference Machine, P.U.D.G.E, and "Special Guest DJ" EDAN. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale. All of HS's dates are also listed, along with his new video for "Fat Belly", below.
Homeboy recently added to a front page controversy via an article he wrote for Gawker entitled "Black People Are Cowards". He writes:
In light of the recent decision by a professional basketball team, comprised of mostly black players, to respond to their boss basically saying "I hate niggers" by turning their shirts inside out the next day at work, I have come to the decision that I agree wholeheartedly with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, and I too do not want black people invited to my events.LOTS more where that came from, if you haven't read it yet, at Gawker.
Tour dates, songs and video below....
Homeboy Sandman - Fat Belly
"Second video from Homeboy Sandman's White Sands is "Fat Belly," and let's get this out of the way: it's a track about food. Oreo cookies and almond milk and on & on. For Sandman, the subject matter is not about nailing a theme (like Doom's MM FOOD) - it's always about story telling. Press play and watch for cameos from producer Paul White, BBC's Sarah Love, and some chicken legs. Directed by Bunny Bread of Code Emphasis. Raw Chocolate by Kate Magic."Homeboy Sandman -- 2014 Tour Dates
