Homeboy Sandman alongside DJ Tru Master delivered a 90 minute Hip Hop show at a ferocious pace
It has been about 5 years since we last saw Homeboy Sandman at The Jazz Café. During that time he’s probably dropped about 5 projects. There was lots of new material we were hearing live for the first time, including the emotionally charged “Trauma” taken from his 2020 Album “Don’t feed the monster”.
The legendary MC flawlessly delivered over 20 lyrically complex tracks showcasing not only élite level Rhyming and delivery but also his genius memory too.
I’m really enjoying this time in the live Hip Hop scene where increased standards of performance are the norm and emcees who are over 40 years old can rock a mic and keep us engaged for over an hour long without relying on cliché troupes such as a hype man or the need for a 10minute DJ break!
The great thing about intimate shows at the Jazz Café is when the artists are happy to jump off stage and greet the fans after the gig at the merch table. Homeboy Sandman was no exception to this taking the time to pose for photos and sign vinyls.
My personal highlights from the show were the seamless ways in which Homeboy Sandman navigated through some of his prime cuts and how DJ Tru Master gave us an unexpected Break dancing session to close the show.
