RCRD LBL Star: Homeboy Sandman – Ivy League Hip Hop

Apologies for the late delivery of this post. We took the time to enjoy the Movement festival, which we will have a few follow-up posts coming later this week. That said, we hope this is right on time.

Homeboy Sandman

Homeboy Sandman is an eMCee based out of Queens, NY. He was educated at University of Pennsylvania, which may or may not be the driver of Sandman’s verbosity. Regardless of that, his record The Good Sun (Amazon link) is one of the best hip hop offerings of this year. It drops today on High Water Music. “Yeah, But I Can Rhyme Though” is a track off of it, featured on our RCRD LBL.

Funky Friday: Inner City

In sticking with the theme of the 2010 Movement festival, we want to highlight an oldie-but-goodie. Inner City is playing live on Sunday on the Vitamin Water Main Stage and I cannot get their biggest hits out of my head. Good Life (Amazon Affiliate link) is their biggest hit. It exemplifies the late 80s/early 90s for inner-city Detroiters. Big Fun (affiliate link) is their other highly-recognizable jam. Manned by one of Detroit Techno’s originators Kevin Saunderson, Inner City will always be a link in Detroit’s rich musical heritage.

The links posted are there in case you get the bug that I have and you want to add the tracks to your collection. Dig deeper, there is more goodness where those came from. Otherwise, enjoy the video and get ready for the long weekend!
