Homeboy Sandman – I Do Whatever I Want (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 3rd, 2012 by Hyphen

The title of Sandman’s newest video pretty accurately sums up his whole steez. I’ve always been a big fan of his unique flow, which is on display quite nicely here as well. Dopeness.

Homeboy Sandman – The Miracle (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 25th, 2012 by Hyphen

Some folks have been wondering who’s rapping on our new SNSS intro each week, but our regular listeners should already be familiar with Homeboy Sandman.  They probably remember us playing this record too, which may be the greatest lyrical example of breaking down the creative process that I’ve ever heard.  No exaggeration.

Torae – For The Record (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 10th, 2012 by Hyphen

I just mentioned how I’ve been thankful and inspired to see NYC’s current generation continue the legacy of that classic mid-90’s boom bap and Torae is, of course, another prime example. Primo on the beat. Knowledge on the mic.

Sound Session #348 (2-12-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on February 13th, 2012 by Hyphen

Huge shout out to Mediafire for randomly deleting all of our archived episodes of Sound Session without any warning or explanation.  I’m hoping they’ll put our files back, but in the interim, all we’ve got is this week’s SNSS.  It makes the perfect Valentine’s Day gift though…trust me.

Oh…and legitimate shouts to Homeboy Sandman for lacing us with a new intro (workinonit!) and for The Good Sin and Fatal Lucciauno for dropping by the studio to talk about their upcoming projects.

CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, & Homeboy Sandman in Seattle – May 15th

Posted in Artists, Live Performances on April 28th, 2011 by Hyphen

Seattle: On Sunday, May 15th, I expect to see you all at the Croc to check out some of the illest (and criminally underrated) artists out there: The CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, and Homeboy Sandman.  You should be familiar with all of them by now, especially if you listen to Sound Session since we play them all quite often, but if not, come see them in person and learn something.  You’ll also get to see Blue Sky, Black Death, who make some incredible beats, and local music from the Knowmads.

Be there!

Kosha Dillz – DooDoo (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 12th, 2010 by Hyphen

Oh vey!  The homey Kosha is back with his 2nd video off Beverly Dillz.  If you haven’t peeped it yet, the album is completely produced by Belief and Kosha’s spitting these kind of playful bars throughout.  Good stuff.

Homeboy Sandman, P. Casso, & Von Pea – SXSW Cypher

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on March 28th, 2009 by Hyphen

I’m pretty sure I walked right by this as it was winding down and I was hustling in to the Nah Right & Smoking Section Showcase in Austin.  These kind of impromptu cyphers were breaking out all over the city just cause the vibe was like this all weekend.  Shout to Sandman, P. Casso, Low Key, and the Hip-Hop Official folks, all of whom I met for the first time down there (the shout to Tanya Morgan goes without saying!).
