Homeboy Sandman is New York City's premier talent based hip hop musician. Mainstream. Underground. Period.
His latest release "The Good Sun," reached #1 on CMJ's national music chart, and appeared on countless 2010 year end lists, (including HipHopDX's Top 25, #2 on Real Late's Top 30 on Hot 97.1 FM, and #1 on Billy Jam's Top 50 on Amoeba.com) . He has a video ("The Carpenter") in rotation on MTV and has been prominently featured in internationally recognized hip hop publications such as XXL and The Source, as well by non genre-specific press outlets such as FADER and The LA Times. On the heels of starring in an episode of MTV MADE (which documented him training a San Diego teen in the artform of hip hop), he has been handpicked by celebrated UK tastemaker Gilles Peterson (of BBC1) to perform at 2011's World Wide Awards, and is indeed on the cusp of going global. Prioritizing quality content, live shows, and fan building ahead of hype, he is the blueprint for the self-sustaining, landscape shifting, indie artist in the young millenium.
Raheem Jarbo, aka Random or Mega Ran. Teacher/Rapper/Hero. People will remember Ran for his daring leap into video game remixing which led to a Capcom cosign, but Random's penchant for storytelling has impressed retro gamers while garnering respect from Hip-Hop's harshest critics. An incredible impromptu "freestyle" MC, Random's unique combination of fantasy and introspective hip-hop has found its way into TV shows, movies, video games, and even coursework at several universities. That's Random.
