Easily the best track from this project that I’ve heard yet! (video)
A while ago, I talked about Homeboy Sandman and Edan’s call to get everyone off the the internet and I generally enjoyed it, if not just to hear Edan’s insane production again. Now with this new track, “The Gut” however, they have my full attention. The first thing about this track is Edan production wizardry is back in full force; with a LSD-laced track that goes heavy on the psychedelic synth vibes with some of the hardest hitting drums I think I’ve ever heard from one of his productions yet. And Homeboy doesn’t slouch here either; flowing in stream of conscience along with Edan’s erratic production perfectly while still offering up some worldly insights at the same time (Edan actually comes in with a few short bars himself, too). Overall, this could potentially be the best rap duo team since Run The Jewels so I’m definitely looking forward to what these two left-field hip-hop heros have in store on their new album.
Homeboy Sandman & Edan’s Humble Pi is out now on Stones Throw!
