Sage Francis: The Best of Times
The Sage is a rapper and spoken word lyrisist who comes from the US. His vocal style is kind of like an American Scroobius Pip but with a less immense beard. He actually started the record label "Strange Famous" that Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip are signed to!
This tune "The Best of Times" is a nostalgic look back at his past loves, anguishes and losses i.e. a typical life. Think about this decades "Wear Sunscreen" by Baz Luhrman but with beats by Dan Le Sac and lyrics by Gil Scott Heron.
At first you're not sure what is going on or where he's going, starting like a lullaby but then you hear a line and you think, "hold on, I liked that" and then another grabs you and then another and then the song finishes. I had to listen again as i wasnt sure what I I had just listened to.
Well folks, here is your chance to listen and then listen again and then again! Holla! The Best of Times is Sage's second single from his latest album "li(f)e" and is available as a free download by going to his website and pressing the button there. Have a look and see what else you can find!
