Homeboy Sandman & Edan - Humble Pi LPLabel: Stones Throw
'Humble Pi' is the forthcoming collaborative album from two NYC-based rappers, Homeboy Sandman and Edan. It's also Edan's highly anticipated return since 2005's 'Beauty And The Beat.' Sandman and Edan's partnership goes back several years, to when a friend told Sandman to check out Edan’s live show. It blew Sandman's mind, and the two finally connected when they shared a bill at Manhattan venue Santos Party House. Their collaboration took off from there: whenever they could find a few open hours, they’d write and record in Edan’s Brooklyn studio. The outcome of those sessions is this new album, on which Sandman's goofy and self-effacing but incisive raps are a perfect foil for Edan's "electric- fried psych beats" (Stereogum).
