JUST CONFIRMED: Homeboy Sandman

Been all over this guy a lot lately, so we are super hyped to have confirmed him for a Birmingham show. He’s recently joined the Stones Throw ranks, with two dope EPs ‘Subject Matter’ and ‘Chimera’, and the press have been falling all over themselves to big him up.


While pretty new to Stones Throw – his second six-track EP was just released by the veteran hip-hop imprint – Homeboy Sandman is by no means green. Active since 2007, this 30-something from Queens, New York has had string of impressive releases since his inception, and has been hailed as “New York City’s premier talent based hip hop emcee. Mainstream. Underground. Period.” along with being dubbed ‘Artist to Watch’ by Rolling Stone. Check this noise:

” Sandman is the type of rapper beloved by hip-hop traditionalists: proudly old school, technically savage, and lyrically sharp.” – Pitchfork (read full review)

“Lyrical monster…with an endless supply of wordplay and the ability to employ supernatural, off-beat flows.” – Okayplayer.com

Homeboy Sandman plays at Hare and Hounds on Tuesday 5th June 2012.
Tickets available from WeGotTickets / TheTicketSellers
