Sage Francis is an American rapper and spoken word artist hailing from Miami, Florida. Born in 1976, hes been involved with rap and spoken word poetry - as well as battle formats like slam poetry - from the mid 90s, though he got his big break after winning an MC battle in 2000 and releasing 9/11-related track Makeshift Patriot the following year, becoming an online hit.
Also the founder of Strange Famous Records, Francis has since released a string of successful albums - including three for punk label Epitaph, making him the first hip-hop artist in their roster - and loads of mixtapes. Francis, however, is best experienced live on stage and is constantly out performing, be it on his own or with acts like Atmosphere and Brother Ali. He hits the UK for a tour in October 2014 - check below to find tickets!
