HOMEBOY SANDMAN – KINDNESS FOR WEAKNESS
Kindness For Weakness is Homeboy Sandman’s third full-length album on Stones Throw Records. The album’s title comes from Sandman’s internal insight saying “mistaking kindness for weakness is a weakness I need to have more kindness for.” One of Sandman’s most poignantly lyrical releases to date, the album centers on the MCs discomfort in his comfort zone and addresses themes such as his personal insecurities, rapper stereotypes and morality.
Since signing with Stones Throw Records in 2011, Homeboy Sandman has made himself at home releasing 3 full-lengths – First of a Living Breed, Hallways, and now Kindness for Weakness – along with a series of 5 short records and most recently, releasing a free EP with collaborator Aesop Rock named Lice. Sandman has once again established himself as one of the most productive and creative lyricists of this generation.
