Showing Love For Local Cats


The Sandpeople are a super-sized hip-hop group out of Portland, Oregon.  In terms of numbers and diversity think Wu-Tang, but with a bit less to offer.  A lot of the MCs made names for themselves in the battle circuit, so a good portion of their records still have that component.  Though they have begun to get some attention at the national level, they are still mostly a regional act, and open a lot of shows in the Portland area.  The best thing about this group is their ability to engage a crowd.  Don't let the video fool you,  They have a high level of intensity and are able to feed off each other's energy.

Side-note: one of my favorite record stores, 360 Vinyl, is in the video
