Sage Francis Interview from Hiphopinfinity (2000)  Reply with quote

Haha.
Whoa.
This is a hell of a throwback.
It might take a few clicks to get it to load.

It seems various other parts of the site can be accessed through the archives.
Tons of articles, interviews and such that have become far more entertaining with age.

"Do you think we'll see a black president in our time?"

(Especially the infamous Top 50 MCs list)

Yep.
That's where I nabbed it from.

I was amazed that the forums are intact to an extent.

I remember reading this in high school when I was first discovering sage francis and a lot of other indie hoppers. I remember thinking that this guy was really strange and laughing at his answers. the name an artist that most people wouldnt expect you to like question is burned in my memory. cage and sage on a track? could it or would it ever happen?

hah.
I knew this thread would lure you here.

Top 50 MC list is still available on there.
It's every bit as fantastic as you remember it, I'm sure.

2. Sage Francis
Sage Francis combines the brilliant poetics of Sole, the multi-syllabic rhyme structures of Eminem, the abstract conceptualism of a young Pharaohe Monch, and the raw, emotional soul of Common; but it isn't fair to compare him to these emcees-- they should be compared to him. Easily the most well-rounded emcee alive, Sage can go from being comically misogynist to revolutionary, and flip back to make a song about dealing with his father's death, without missing a beat. His raspy voice is unmistakable, and his delivery is flawless. On top of all this, he is an accomplished freestyler and battle emcee, a nationally recognized spoken-word artist, and does lead-vocals for a popular New England hip hop band. How could anyone have the audacity to say he's not well-rounded?

Sage will be releasing his "official" debut album on Anticon Records in the summer of 2001, and it will once and for all cement his status as hip hop's greatest talent. Though he already has diverse classics like "Majority Rule," "Bounce," "All Word, No Play," and "Mullet" under his belt; tracks like "Inherited Scars," "Climb Trees," "Crack Pipes," and "Broken Wings" will catapult him into a new level of underground acclaim.

Despite his appearance and all the rumors, Sage Francis is in fact, still quite young. Remarkably, he continues to improve when it seems he could not possibly get any better. Look for Sage to occupy HHI's #1 spot for the next five years or more. (Words by Jay Seagraves)

Heh, Common was #1, naturally. That list is jokes, I enjoyed reading it.

Same here. I remember reading those top 50 lists too. The good old days. Haha.


I especially enjoy this:
I've noticed you said you want to "pee on Paul Barman." Why not just have sex with his sister or something? Why pee?
I have made up my mind. It's not changing. He will have my pee on him.
