The Video:

With the success and acclaim of their recently released EP, Long Story, Short..., still bubbling, Portland's Sandpeople continue working, and have now released the EP's first official video, "Hate Aside." After teasing us with behind the scenes footage some time ago, the video brings the EP's lead single to life, weaving the tale of a mystery package, passed from one crew member to the next, interspersed with shots of the crew doing what they do best - rapping their asses off. Sandpeople's latest release, the Long Story, Short... EP is available now via Sandpeople Music.

The video, directed by up and comer Christian Hansen, is up for MTVU's The Freshmen Contest. Starting today, until Friday at 2pm, fans can vote for "Hate Aside" as many times as they want. If "Hate Aside" beats out the competitors, the video will be placed in permanent rotation on MTVu.

The Background:

Since the 2005 release of Sandpeople's debut album, Points of View, the group has seen a growth not only in their own numbers, but also in their rate of musical output. The Sandpeople collective comprises 10 members and several sub-groups, each recording and releasing their own respective works in conjunction with the group projects. The crew's original members include founding member, Mo-B, as well as ILLmaculate, Onlyone, Gold, iame, Al-One, Simple, and DJ Spark. Later, per request of Mo-B, producer Sapient and rapper Ethic joined the original eight. Points Of View, an album recorded over a two-week span, quickly grabbed the attention of music fans everywhere, creating a cult-like following and spreading virally along the west coast and underground hip-hop scenes. That buzz lead to a yearlong courtship by Epic Records, which, although not resulting in a deal with the label, proved very influential and educational for the crew. Outside of the collective, various Sandpeople members have received numerous solo accolades as well. ILLmaculate, a Portland native, was crowned champion of the 2004 Scribble Jam Rap Battle at the age of 17, and group producer, rapper, and multi-instrumentalist, Sapient, has garnered recognition from his work with artists such as Inspectah Deck, Sean Price, and Aesop Rock, just to name a few. Sandpeople’s newest effort, the aptly titled EP Long Story, Short..., is the product of insight gained from their major label courtship and the deeply ingrained work ethic and self-imposed high standards of the crew. With a new full-length on the way, the EP serves to show the continued growth of the crew, both individually and collectively. Long Story, Short... is available everywhere via Sandpeople Music.
