Interview: Homeboy Sandman

Queens native Homebody Sandman is as dexterous as he is funny, an awesome, prolific rapper who’s super-smart even whilst clowning around. His videos alone are enough to keep him on the brain—like, how could you forget a dude who shoots lasers from his hands, or employs backwards-running diapermen to illustrate a point. But it’s easy to get nestled inside his flow, his scrape-y voice weirdly comforting even when he’s rapping at 160 mph. On the cusp of two new albums and an upcoming appearance at Atlanta’s A3C Festival, we chatted with him about his forthcoming projects, Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince, green smoothies, and various other matters of import.

    The Boy Sand is by far one of the most interesting and inspiring people to work with in life, without a doubt. For those of you that have worked with him, spent time with him or are related to him (ha), you know what’s up. Cheers to the homie!
