On the 6 August 2015 we had the pleasure of hosting the international indie juggernaut Sage Francis at Iron Tusk in Johannesburg, South Africa!!! dohiphop.com, Beneath The Surface and Lalelani Studios banded together in collaboration with TheFilmGuys and Caps and Cans, making sure that Sage Francis appeared on Jozi soil.
Sage Francis is widely considered one of our generation’s greatest lyricists. His career derives mainly from gifted wordplay that creates vivid narratives to instigate as well as inspire, but since it often derives from an accumulation of public disdain and personal turmoil, it’s more about storming the castle than about watching the throne.
We got to catch up with him before the show for an interview about his thoughts on life, hip-hop, Copper Gone, South Africa and general Tom foolery; Filmed and put together by TheFilmGuys… Check it out here:
This was one of those historic events that will forever be remembered, the impact of which definitively left it’s mark, not only on the attendees, but set the example for others to do the same.
Thank you Sage!!
Also, thank you to the local Johannesburg Indie Artists who accompanied him on the night:
DJ: Tha Cutt
And to you, the audience, for making the show so special!!
