Homeboy Sandman "Mine All Mine" Video

There was a time I used to wonder what rappers really thought and felt but couldn't actually say, underneath the anger, the politics, the bragging, the obligatory lies about sex etc. I used to wonder what it would be like to have a proper heart to heart with your favourite rapper. Then Drake and Tyler The Creator came along, and as with watching Peep Show, I've come to realise in most cases my general ignorance of the male mind is a pretty blissful state.

That doesn't include Homeboy Sandman however, who doesn't have much in the way of a filter between him and the outside world (see video above), but luckily he's an amazing person with a really interesting perspective on things. I have to say from hanging out with the guy, there isn't a vast difference between listening to his music and sitting with him in a cafe, but this is the first time I've seen him manage to achieve the exact same effect through a music video.

You can buy his latest release Subject: Matter from Stones Throw now, all of the songs on it are about things no one has ever rapped about before in the history of rap. Ever.

We Loved : 2011

[wpcol_1half id="" class="" style=""] We Loved 2011- Lianne LaHavas[expand title="(Disclaimer+)"]"We Love" is a big one click download of carefully selected individual tracks sourced from reputable blogs & artists we love. Please email us (info@putmeonit.com) if we've uploaded a non-promo track in error or to send us something you love. [/expand]

This collection is pretty much how my year in music looked, or at least how my year in free music looked (according to my iTunes I listened to Feist so much they'll probably report me for stalking).

The "cover star" is Lianne La Havas. For me she's a great example of the kind of talent coming out of the UK at the moment, making really incredible music but who a couple of years ago might have been stuffed unfairly in to a small box or passed over entirely as a marketing nightmare, instead in 2011 she was taking the industry by storm.

Whilst usually I would only expect most people to enjoy a handful of tracks from the usual "We Love" compilations, this really is a no-brainer selection of great music, so if you only download one from PMOI, let it be this one.

Music is never really "free", the artists who make it and generously share it with us put their all in to it and deserve our ears and our support, so please listen, spread the word, buy their albums and go to see them live.
