Aesop Rock & Homeboy Sandman Drop Free EP “Lice 2: Still Buggin'”

Last year saw the legendary Aesop Rock team up with Stones Throw rapper Homeboy Sandman for one of 2015’s best EPs, Lice. 

The pair were an incredible match with their uniquely illustrative lyrics, strong production choices and uniquely distinct tones and flows – check out our full review here for more.

The time since has been largely spent together, with Homeboy Sandman supporting Aesop Rock on an extensive US tour. Both artists have released albums in 2016; Aesop Rock delivered The Impossible Kidone of, if not his best album to date (certainly a personal favourite after Labor Days) while Homeboy offered up the stunning Kindness For Weakness.

Now, the pair have surprise released another free EP – Lice 2: Still Buggin’. Both artists had teased a release across social media, but I wasn’t expecting a complete new EP.

Here’s a note delivered along with the EP:

People of earth –
