Fans of poet/rapper extraordinaire Sage Francis should be ready to see another side of their talented hero. With partner Joey Beats on production, the usually self-reflective/ self-deprecating (dare we say emo?) Anticon recording artist shows his hardcore b-boy side, with clever, crowd-pleasing couplets flowing with ease over dope beats. "Well I'm your typical hip-hop political figure/ I'm not left wing or right wing/ I'm the middle finger," raps Sage on "Damage." Each track brims with double entendres and word play, and comedy is abundant. Classic hip-hop tracks are referenced, mainstream rap is mocked, science is dropped and wack emcees are put in their place.
