    BHF Alumni: Homeboy Sandman: The Good Sun In Stores And Online Now!

    BHF Alumni continue to make strides towards greatness with every step they take. Ever since wowing the crowd with his own personal brand of lyrical linguistics at the ’09 BHF installment, Queens MC Homeboy Sandman has been on a mission to be seen and heard. On June 1 he took one step closer to fulfilling that mission with the release of his first-fully distributed album, and third overall, The Good Sun on HighWater/Fat Beats.

    Reviewed on May 28 on HipHopDX.com, Sandman’s full-length installment received a glowing 4 out of 5 rating on the site, and 4.5 out of 5 by site users. With production from DJ Spinna, Ski Beatz and Psycho Les of Beatnuts fame, the 14-track collection is described as “rollicking” and “relentless”, “a rugged, bounce-heavy juggernaut” and “a multi-layered masterpiece”.

    The Good Sun was summed up as “a sleek offering loaded with relentless, genre-pushing musicality, otherworldly rhyme schemes and contextual relevance.” Not too shabby for the first time out! The entire review can be read at http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/reviews/id.1443/homeboy-sandman-the-good-sun.

    As if that weren’t enough, Sandman let fans and would-be fans get a first hand glimpse of some of his guerilla marketing techniques on the net. In it, he takes viewers along for a ride on the NYC subway system as he and his crew tag trains with ads for the new disc.

    Unfortunately, Sand and his crew were caught red-handed by subway security, but not before successfully placing some of their artiest advertisements for the new album throughout the iron freight. The video can be seen at the following link: http://www.2dopeboyz.com/2010/06/01/homeboy-sandman-guerilla-marketing-video/.

    The Good Sun is available in stores and online now. For more information on Homeboy Sandman, visit www.homeboysandman.com, www.myspace.com/homeboysandman, and homeboysandman.blogspot.com.
