"I first got into Sage Francis when one of my best friends insisted I listen to his song "Makeshift Patriot", which was written on Sept. 12, 2001 and perfectly captured the aftermath of 9/11 in America. Then we went to see him perform & by the end of the night I was blown away. The fact that he mixes serious topics with a sense of humor so flawlessly impresses me, and the fact that we're the same age probably accounts for my strong connection to his lyrics.
I've got the majority of his released "

"Nominated by the giraffe
Sage has been my favorite hip-hop artist for a few years now, after a friend introduced me to his music & we went to see him in concert. He's socially conscious and has a great sense of humor, so his songs make me think and laugh often at the same time. Plus he has yet to release an album that I don't like every song on, which is extremely rare in hip-hop.
Favourite Album: A Healthy Distrust
Favourite Song: "Slow Down Gandhi"/"Makeshift Patriot"/"Best of Times"/"Hopel"

"Day 18 - Favorite lyricist
Sample lyrics: "Hopeless"
I played connect the dots with your beauty marks and I ended up with picture perfect sheet music.
I read your musical notes with a composer's eyes
And heard our song for the first time
My spine is still tingling.
Mental images of your fine tune is what I've been nodding my head to lately,
Every now and then you can catch me humming your nudity under my heavy breath.
I heavily suggest you resurrect your ancient neglected dust collector
