There has never been an anomaly in hip-hop quite like the southern trio CunninLynguists. Sampling a wide range of musical genres, they have been musically compared to UGK and Atmosphere in the same breath. They have toured and shared stages with many notable artists including Kanye West and Macklemore, and have produced for Lil' Scrappy as well as KRS-One. They have crafted songs with international soul superstar Cee-Lo Green and politically charged indie-favorite Immortal Technique... on the same album. CunninLynguists have eschewed categories, boxes and labels for 13 years, 5 albums and 5 official mixtapes, all while having what XXL Magazine described as the "Most Hated Name In Rap".
CunninLynguists’ most recent project, Strange Journey Volume 3, was released on April 1st, 2014 in conjunction with Bad Taste Records and Ineffable Music Group. The album boasts guest spots from Del The Funky Homosapien, Murs, Zumbi of Zion I, Masta Ace and Grieves.
Sage Francis is widely considered one of our generation’s greatest lyricists. His career derives mainly from gifted wordplay which 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.
Dubbed as the “forefather of indie-hop,” Francis originally earned acclaim in the early 2000’s by winning the most highly coveted titles of the emcee battle circuit. With little to no funding, Francis sustained himself by selling his innovative “Sick of” mixtapes, all made by hand on the floor of his Providence, RI apartment. These were essentially bootleg compilations full of select recordings from his 12” vinyl singles, demo sessions, live performances and radio freestyles. The popularity of these tapes birthed Strange Famous Records (SFR); a meager, one-man operation in 1999.
“COPPER GONE”, Francis’ 6th studio album, dropped on June 3rd, 2014 via Strange Famous Records. This indie release managed to break Billboard’s Top 200 as well as iTunes top 5 for hip-hop in the US as well as in the UK. Upon the release of Copper Gone, Sage Francis has toured the world and he continues to tour extensively well into 2015.
