Sage Francis

Couple years back my definition of rap was a little different but then came Sage Francis to change all that. Afterwards I discovered a whole world of underground hip-hop.

He has ...earned a couple of prestigious freestyle battle championships and a few poetry slam titles. His spoken word performances have been featured on ESPN and ABC X-Games commercials (which paid his rent for a year). He has also officially toured the US twice, once with Atmosphere, once with Anticon, and has been on the road booking one-off shows independently for a few years. To pay his rent he bootlegs his own CD-Rs and cassettes, selling thousands upon thousands of copies with minimal distribution and self-promotion. --anticon

easily one of the most talented lyricists of our time, sage rocks the shit out of his stage show. if you have any respect for hip-hop pay the 10 bucks if he plays in your town. you will not be let down.

sage is that shit. no one even comes close to touchin him when it come to political hip-hop. Maybe Globe holders but that is a totally different ball park of the scene. Long live Sage Francis.
