Independence Day was a couple weeks ago, but it’s never too late to enjoy a little patriotic music. On new single America, the Beautiful, Homeboy Sandman celebrates all the things that, in his opinion, make our country great—a list guaranteed to set any Tea Partier’s teeth on edge. Over the dusty sample work of producer Jonwayne, the Queens rhymesayer rhapsodizes about public schools, minimum wage, food stamps, Section 8 housing, mass transit, fire departments, paved roads and other public goods that help safeguard the well-being of U.S. citizens. Feeling it? More lyrically-stimulating jams await on the artist’s Hallways LP, scheduled to drop via Stones Throw on September 2.
