Homeboy Sandman is an emcee signed to Stones Throw Records. Someone who prides himself on musical growth and evolution, he was raised in Queens NY, had academic stints in New Hampshire, Philadelphia, London and Long Island and bartended at the legendary Lennox Lounge in Harlem, which is where Shaft used to drink.
In December 2006 he decided to focus on his musical passion. His first album came the following year once he'd already been chosen as a coach on MTV's MADE, featured in preeminent print hip-hop mags XXL and The Source, and perpetually championed on foremost online hubs.
Rolling Stone has noted his "skill for wordplay that keeps you hooked." NPR has highlighted his "artful, hysterical, disobedient hip-hop that you can dance to." Pitchfork has straightforwardly dubbed him "one of the best pure lyricists around."
Support for the show comes from Skunkadelic / Oort Kuiper & DJ Veto, Joe Dirt - Squid Ninjaz and Nicodemus Reuben & Doc BlackdaWho
