Stones Throw MC Homeboy Sandman has just dropped an 8-track record entitled Kool Herc:Fertile Crescent produced in entirety by El RTNC. As the number of tracks implies, the work is a shout-out to the early beginnings of hip-hop, one filled with funk breaks, graffiti art and great lyrics. If you are still unconvinced, consider that the album has the blessing of the Almighty DJ Kool Herc and hence bears his namesake on the record. The release is just the first of three that Sandman is posed to come out with this year on Stones Throw with each one dealing with a particular theme and having a single producer. Jump to the Stones Throw website to buy the digital and/or the vinyl and check out the free listen below.
