Homeboy Sandman's new album Don't Feed The Monster, is a collaboration with producer/MC Quelle Chris. It's also his most vulnerable and poignant work to date. Having grown up in Queens, New York, hip-hop was part of everything in life. This deep-rooted connection to the culture is evident when listening to his style of rhyming- bold, classic & deeply respectful. On Don't Feed The Monster, he pulls back any pretense to show his most honest truth - a process that he needed both artistically and spiritually. "I was having a hard time and this record saved me thank Quelle and thank God and shout to Gabor Maté," he said about the new album. Album producer (and guest vocalist) Quelle Chris has been one of the most talked about and celebrated hip-hop artists on the planet these last few years. Both producing and rapping, Quelle has released critically acclaimed albums like Guns, Innocent Country 2, and Everything's Fine with his collaborator/wife Jean Grae. "There's a certain mystic/magical power in words, sounds, rhythms, etc. It's rare to come across a brother/artist like Sandman," he says when asked about his new album with Homeboy Sandman.
