Through this short film entitled ”Formation,” director Rel chronicles several NYC days in the life of Homeboy Sandman. It’s notable, especially for this website, in that it focuses on Sandman’s father Angel Del Villar, a former Golden Gloves winner who fought at Madison Square Garden. His father’s achievements in boxing would inspire Sandman to forego a possible law career to pursue his dream to be a rapper. This film also delves into Sandman’s creative process and addictions.
Homeboy Sandman’s debut Stones Throw project, First of a Living Breed, is due out on September 18.
