The driving drums and amazing sample held a beautiful sadness that pulled out of me lamentations of a man stuck in a cycle of love and tormented by a barrage of psychological and emotional abuse. In his dealing with these feelings he finds himself unable to let go asking her to either let him go or make him believe in their love again. Pulling from personal and other stories imparted to me by friends and associates of both genders "I'm only a Drop" was born.

This song originally appeared on Can't Wait, and in this version, we didn't include Posner's part -- because of the treatment. Hope you enjoy it and get a good laugh. It's fucking awesome. The video to "Rich Kid" is coming soon.
Fresh off appearances at SXSW with label mates Apollo Brown & Oddisee, Gensu Dean has unleashed his first video to support his debut album "Lo-Fi Fingahz". To bring this one to life, Dean brought in director Calvan Fowler of DayDream FilmWorks whom you may recognize from his work with Pete Rock/Smif n Wessun on Roses feat. Freeway. The video was shot in Brooklyn & Manhattan this past month and takes listeners back to when storytelling and direction went hand in hand.

MP3: Sandpeople - "This Time Around" (prod. Chase Moore)

Sandpeople are back on their collective grind but things are different "This Time Around." It's been almost 3 years since the Portland, Oregon based mega-crew has released an official album (their 2009 release "Long Story Short" received critical acclaim and earned them play on MTVu with the music video for "Hate Aside"), but they have remained ridiculously active like 6th graders during a Ritalin shortage with a steady barrage of solo member and sub-group releases. Amidst the various Sandpeople-related projects, the entire crew has been working together on new material and plans for world domination. The first phase begins now, as the "10 headed dragon" launches a kickstarter campaign to help with international tour efforts.
To kick-off this campaign, Sandpeople has released the new single "This Time Around," produced by Chase Moore. Here we find Illmaculate, IAME, Goldini Bagwell, and Ethic delivering scorching verses over Chase's hard hitting drums and anthemic melody. DJ Spark kills the cuts as always, dropping bars with samples better than most emcees do over samples. "This Time Around" it truly is different; Sandpeople are hungrier than ever and the rest of you rappers look delectable.
