Last year, Queens, New York MC Homeboy Sandman connected with triple-threat DJ/rapper/producer, Edan to serve up some Humble Pi, courtesy of Stones Throw Records. With their joint LP, the highly-talented duo proved they were bred and conditioned into Hip-Hop, showcasing some of the sharpest rhymes delivered in a classically, over Edan’s dusty and far-reaching beats.
Individually, the two weave through rhymes, but pass the mic like the Beastie Boys, showing undeniable energy and chemistry. The dynamic of the group is not unlike those of pioneering Hip-Hop crews. There are inner-locking rhymes, technically-advanced patterns, and subject matters pulling from both reality and two colorful imaginations. For evidence, look no further than the pair’s new “HIP OPsession (live session),” by ARTE.
