DJ JAV Presents: Homeboy Sandman: Orphans

Hailing from the DC/MD/VA area, DIAMONDCUTTERZ’ DJ JAV holds down several club residencies, rocking crowds throughout the area on a weekly basis. Both a friend and astute fan of Homeboy Sandman’s music and movement, DJ JAV proudly & humbly took on the mission of shedding light to some little known, underexposed or simply slept on Boy Sand heat rocks.
Fresh out of the lab with exclusive remixes and an exclusive radio freestyle, the 80 minute long mix. 
“Orphans” highlights 30 Homeboy Sandman gems exhibiting elite lyricism and wordplay combined with amazing production from the U.S. to London & Wales, brought to life by the likes of P.So, 2 Hungry Bros, Psycho Les, Jinesis and more. An Intro beat produced by Low Budget Crew’s Kaimbr and cover art by DC Native Aniekan Udofia make this project a definite must listen.

Ahhhh man, as if Homeboy needed any further reason to be more listened to, now we get this...

Very impressive mix of some of his slept-on jewels, very well put together.. a huge *respectful bow* goes out to DJ JAV of Diamondcutterz for this one...

Single: DJ Skizz ft. Ill Bill & Lil' Fame - Violence

Annnnnd the award for the coolest single cover art goes to...

DJ Skizz of Halftime radiuo show fame (and a cat that is nasty on the boards) is stilll readying that debut compilation/production LP "BQE", and here we get a lil' morsel of the hardcore goonery that will likely be apart of it en masse..

Lil' Fame and Ill Bill team up to tear a beat to shreds and make a bunch of really non-progressive ass statements that hardcore enthusiasts like myself love... lol.. enjoy..

Rest in peace...
