Not Bad Sage...  Reply with quote  

Not sure if this has been posted. Nice Work. Best song of 2003 isn't too shabby.

1. Non-Prophets, "Hey Bobby"
A precise, scathing indictment of George Bush's America backed by stripped-down beats, "Hey Bobby" is the rare song that (dare I say it?) rocks with purpose. The lyrics are among the smartest ever heard in a rap song, while the spare, old-school production (think Digable Planets, c. 1993) both charms and intensifies. Pretty perfect.

Definately not weak. That song speaks volumes about the state of affairs today.

whatever hippy. It's good from a lyric standpoint but that means dick all cause the beat didn't compliment the lyrics at all and the lyrics weren't delivered as well as they could have been. I'd go as far as saying the beat made the track about 50 times less enjoyable. And wow talks about the state of affairs of today what a ground breaking thing to do, shit there hasn't been a thousand tracks about the exact same thing in the past year or anything. the dude who made up that list is full of shit, he's one of those indy rock losers who recently stumbled upon hiphop. Out of every 2003 non-prophets track that wouldn't even be in their top 5 tracks let alone the top song of the year period. And this guy is obviously a fricking joke, look at the mf doom track he picked, not even close to the nicest on vik vaughn. Hey Bobby was way better as a spoken word. The beat totally ruined the mood of the lyrics.

Speak for yourself. People have different tastes. Get used to it.

Hey Bobby would be in my Top 5, and I'm damn fucking well entitled to my personal opinion.

I agree with what you say...Though you sound like Jack Black's character in the movie High Fidelity...It's OPINION man...Opinion...

I must say I think you hit it on the head about him just being an indie rocker who just stumbled upon hip hop...

Sage being #1 is good news, and if its not the track you like, at least its the artist . . . or does that not pacify your elitist standards?

whatever man

Hey I'm not dissing sage at all clowny, that's cool that he's number one but if i was sage I'd be disapointed that the author of the article has absolutely no idea about hiphop and chose a track that didn't even compare to other shit he's done over the past year.

I didn't mean to stir up an argument here. Ah well. Just happy regardless of what track. You didn't have to go all walkie talkie on me.

That's my new word for me to use.

My favorite is "Scarfy, SCAR-FI - Slow talking upper class snob who wears a scarf."

I'm taking the unfavorable opinion that "Hey Bobby" the track was very weak. Something was missing.

When I saw Sage do the spoken word for "Hey Bobby", on the other hand, it was very impressive.
