Wesley It's crazy how prolific Boy Sand is while maintaining a high-quality output. KfW succeeds at weaving in biting criticism of the rap game and world at large while still sounding like an underground cypher amongst homies. Favorite track: Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, feat. yU, Tah Phrum Duh Bush, Shad.

Steven This is just bonkers. He does it fast and slow. He does your typical hip-hop ego fluff pieces and he does earnest meditations on god and mankind. And he does it all really well. Favorite track: Eyes.

Brian Holman Love Homeboy's loose style, and all the tracks are well produced, but still have that very organic feel. Just a good fucking record. Favorite track: Seam by Seam, feat. Until the Ribbon Breaks.

Rusty Joints Glad to have a new Boy Sand joint.
He's going right in and making all sorts of left and non left turns.
Dope project. Favorite track: Keep it Real, feat. Mystro.

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.
