Homeboy Sandman pays his respects to Hip Hop's Godfather Kool Herc with a new EP chock fulla samples and 1970s B-Boy bravado.
Stones Throw Records has announced that Homeboy Sandman will release his fourth project in less than two years with the storied Los Angeles, California area label. On April 16, the Queens, New York emcee will release Kool Herc: Fertile Crescent, an album he first discussed in fall of 2011.
