Homeboy Sandman - Yeah, But I Can Rhyme Though

So I recently listened to a couple tracks from Homeboy Sandman...I'll reserve total judgement until I hear more but this track Yeah, But I Can Rhyme Though is decent. The dude is definitely interesting, check out this Q & A in the LA Times. Here is an interesting tidbit from his press release for all you PNW hip-hop heads:
Sandman was a finalist in LOUD Records competition last year for a chance to win a deal and 50 Grand.All finalists were given a Jake One beat to make a song with, the beat has a gun noise in it, he does not rap over gun noises-- he hate guns and he hates violence and he tried to refuse the beat on moral grounds and was denied.
"The Good Sun" drops June 1st.

For those of you that happen to be in NYC on June 1st (as I will) swing by SOBs and check out the Homeboy Sandman/Spec Boogie album release party.
