Life is confusing sometimes. Take today when I found out that Homeboy Sandman and Edan had snuck out a new collaboration without much fanfare. The quandary though is that the mood of the song is railing against the internet and it’s many, many pitfalls, while simultaneously making us use the internet to listen to the song. I mean if that isn’t the trappings of modern life in a nutshell, then I don’t know what is.
Anyway the song is fucking excellent, with Sandman on the raps and Edan on the beat. It’s full of exquisite, bilious bars like, “Facebook friends are not my real amigos/Checking for comments and shares jacking off my ego” or “Match.com like an online pimp/Step to a girl in real life, you fuckin’ wimp”, all backed up by a drum-heavy beat from Edan, complete with a loop of a girl moaning (in delight?). I am hoping there is going to be more music coming from these two cos they make a pretty formidable team, especially if they were both to rap on a track together. Here’s hoping. You can stream #NeverUseTheInternetAgain below and you can buy it from all the usual spots.
