ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Check out our video for "Roll Call' at http://www.myspace.com/sandpeople

Sandpeople was formed roughly three years ago as an unlikely gathering of hip-hop artists in the Pacific Northwest. This crew has since built itself into a 10 member unit fully equipped to fill a stage and empty a keg (preferably in reverse order). Within the first two months, and long before most Sandpeople had even met each other, their debut album Points of View was recorded and released independently over a two week span. That album laid the ground work for what has become a quick moving crew with extremely high standards. Having several “sub-groups” – with two or three members pairing for a series of projects – interwoven throughout the bigger collective, the crew’s catalog has been growing rapidly since their inception and only continues to gain momentum.

Sandpeople member Illmaculate has also been stacking his list of substantial achievements. After winning the world renowned battle at Scribble Jam in 2004, he has been extremely busy becoming a certified champ. His establishment as one of the world’s top 5 battle MCs gained further validity with his back-to-back victories at the World Rap Championship in Las Vegas ('06) & New York ('07). He and Scribble Jam 2006/2008 champ The Saurus won the prestigious 2-on-2 team battle two years in a row. Their dominance has been nationally televised On-Demand (Comcast) while also providing them coverage in XXL.

The latest installment from Sandpeople is an album titled Honest Racket. The project – which boasts 16 tracks – acts as further proof that this crew is constantly moving forward. Production is handled entirely in-house by Sapient and Simple, as they craft a unique and cohesive sound from start to finish. The MCs attack each beat with their signature style and amazingly the outcome is an album that feels like it was made by a tight knit group, rather than such a large crew. Included on this breakthrough effort are features from two of hip-hop’s finest - The Grouch (Living Legends / Zion I & The Grouch) and Sean Price (Boot Camp Clik / Heltah Skeltah).

To the untrained eye, the Sandpeople may appear to be a confusing mass of hungry emcee’s full of passion and low on serotonin. To the trained eye, this is a certainty. In the cloudy and gray corner of the country not known for its bountiful supply of physical sand, an inappropriately named force is emerging. Concerned first with making quality music that is relevant to real everyday life, Sandpeople are sure to connect with listeners where other artists most commonly fail to. As their name and inventory continues to expand, this will undoubtedly be looked back upon as the crew’s humble beginnings.

Evan Rosenthal

nice
Absolutely hot. West-Coast group mentality, Wu-tang styled switch up shit. smooth. dirty. rockin. unabashed hip-hop. Sapient & Simple mix it all up to perfection.

Jack Minich

One of the best of '07
Doing it modestly, Honest Racket is vicious. Great appearances from the Grouch among others and I really can't say there's a bad track on the album. Production is top-notch, and the lyrics are on-point. Hopefully this will show more people the talent of the People.

Matthew Huddleston


4.5 Stars. Amazing album. Not one weak track. Everyone holds it down on the mic and the production is always banging from the Sandpeople crew. Pick this up.

Rohan Raj

A Masterpiece!
Probably one of the best Sandpeople-related albums I've heard... both the production & vocals are on point. Some AMAZING joints on there... dope job!
