The prolific Queens-bred wordsmith Homeboy Sandman unleashes his latest single “Stand Up” from his forthcoming album There In Spirit. “Stand Up” is a grimy anthemic record addressing the bullies and antagonizers. With its uplifting organ keys to complement, Illingsworth’s production on the track is energetic and commands attention. “Stand Up,” out now, is the third offering from There In Spirit due (Mello Music Group), out February 25, 2022.
On “Stand Up,” Homeboy Sandman’s message is to not allow yourself to be pushed around speaks on not letting yourself be pushed around. He explains, “’Stand Up’ is my jam. I love the energy in the beat. I’m going to stand up for myself. I’m not going to expect people to direct love towards me just because they’re supposed to. Bullies can’t be talked into proper behavior that’s been proven since preschool. They’re not at that stage in their understanding yet. Standing up is the only way to be free.”
