Homeboy Sandman is set to release Kindness For Weakness, histhird full-length album on Stones Throw Records. The album's titlecomes from Sandman's internal insight that "mistaking kindness forweakness is a weakness I need to have more kindness for". One ofSandman's most poignantly lyrical releases to date, the album centreson the MC's discomfort in his comfort zone, and addresses themessuch as his personal insecurities, rapper stereotypes and morality.The prolific Queens MC has been prominently published in Gawkerand the Huffington Post. In an extensive feature in The Guardian, hestated "I don't want to write something to be a conversation piece. Ithas to help change something".Since signing with Stones Throw Records in 2011, HomeboySandman has made himself at home with 3 full-lengths, a series of 5short records and, most recently, a free EP with collaborator AesopRock (who has a guest feature on Kindness for Weakness) namedLice, which includes a remix by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park. WithKindness For Weakness, Sandman has once again establishedhimself as one of the most productive and creative lyricists of thisgeneration.
