Like Bill and Ted before him, Queens rapper Homeboy Sandman learns the hazards of time travel the hard way in his new video for “Hold Your Head,” released in support of the outer-borough emcee’s new Chimera EP, which came out last week on Stones Throw.
Thanks to a time-traveling tape deck and the gift of mad flow, Sandman teaches himself a lesson about living for the past. Director Mac Smullen, who imagineered a time-compression hallway of fate for J-Rocc’s “Stop Trying” video last year, returns at the top of his temporally tweaked game. Watch the video above, and download an unofficial Chimera bonus track “Chimera Out Now.”
