Man they're both absurdly talented rhymers. I would cream my ear pants if they collaborated on an ep. I gave it to boysand by the sliiiiiightest edge. It's basically an impossible comparison though

lol, I came here to post the same thing.

I think I'd have to go with Sandman being the better emcee, but I've enjoyed Jonwayne's ST releases more than Sandman's (though I haven't had a chance to check out the Paul White/Sandman record out yet)

Exactly why i am comparing them....i do see it as dumb and without meaning...just asking for the sake of it..dont be so serious. Jonwayne has yet to impress me. Homeboy though...he kills it, sometimes.

I got mad love for both artists, no doubt. Two of the best on the go IMO.

But as for best MC, I give it to Sandman hands down. He's more of a MC in the classic sense if you ask me (which may or may not matter at all). Of the two, he's just got more mic skills on showcase... he's a friggin acrobat with the wordplay. And his flow is ridiculous. You could put HS up along side any MC, past or present, I believe, and he'd match up.

Wayne is amazing too and a really great MC but his greatness is more particular to his unique angle (just my opinion). He's one of the masters of this era I feel - and sounds like he's going to keep it moving - but I do think you have to contextualize his rhyme book to appreciate it fully.

For shits and googles, here's an acapella from each (these were just the first two to pop up on my search):

Whichever you prefer... man, would love to see these two great MCs team up

for me personally... I'd have to agree that HomeSand is more nimble on the mic, more gifted with his flow in certain ways, but I'm sort of unexpectedly bored by his stuff. I keep going back for his new stuff because he's got the versatile, socially conscious flow, but I'll rarely keep bumping Sandman tracks for very long. He doesn't hold my attention for some reason. However, he's been in the game longer and you can definitely tell. as far as "traditional MC," I agree that he gets it.

JW sorta blew me away with the Cassette series though (more so than with his debut). I wouldn't say he's necessarily a BETTER lyricist, but I tend to like his rhymes, his subject matter/humor, and his voice better. But that's just me. He's a DOOM-ripper in many ways, but I guess I'm cool with that. I don't really think we necessarily have enough Wayne material just yet to make a full comparison though.

I think he's gone the way of all the other pre-2009 acts currently on the label. He's released a few projects via other labels but I doubt we'll ever see another ST release from him, though I thought I read awhile ago that he had a three album deal with Wolf & Co.

One thing I hate about Homeboy is he always does his insane flow, consistently. He doesn't adjust his cadence AT ALL for the beat.



Example. Anyone hear the new De La Dilla? De La took old lyrics and spit em on some Dilla beats. Their flows are different than how they did them on the originals and it pays off. I hate it when emcees don't feel the track in their delivery.

i haven't really given HS much of a chance. i listened to that track "Not Really" when the vid came out, and thought he was just an average rapper at best...not really all that impressive to me tbh.

is there really something i'm missing??? what's a good entry point into his work?

No, I really only hear his singles. I like him, I like who he is, his method, his intelligence, his voice, he just, to me, always spits that almost RZA Like flow. Homeboy! If you are reading this, try to fall in line with the beat more. Trust me.

Haha. I heard the Sand before he was on ST but didn't really give him a chance because his flow is kinda unusual. I subscribe to ST's Drip so I had his LP and EPs on my ipod because I want to get my money's worth from the drip and ST wasn't putting out much in the way of rappers. He has really grown on me. His style is 'dense', his beat selections seem weird at first. It's worth persevering and giving him some listening time imo. He is doing something fresh but it's tied to what went before, he is what rappers might have been if the whole thing hadn't got so stagnated.

Well they are both guys who rap so there is some basis for comparison. JW is smart and tends to deal with personal, philosophical issues. HS is smart and tends to deal with political, social issues. Sand has a very distinct flow, sometimes I think Jon owes a great deal to DOOM, but he acknowledges that himself. They would be dope together on an EP/LP.

AlisterBenway, your name tells me you are insane. Both rap with out taking your typical breaks. Both flow on and on with out nessacarily hitting your typical,accent points.

hahah..take it easy man...and really, still don't see it...many rappers have the very same atypical flow you just described...neither rza nor homeboy own it, nor are their styles defined by it. Their voices, subject matter, and cadence are vastly different. Nothing alike. Your comparison is ridiculous. But this is off topic.
