In an era of flashy excess, Brother Ali and Homeboy Sandman prefer substance. Ali’s cadence is straightforward and autobiographical. Sandman is a lyrical savant: He says whatever he wants and it sounds dope. That makes their show a must-see for hip-hop heads. Lyrics are paramount, and clever wordplay is a given. Hipsters beware. $20.
