Sage Francis – Blue (MUSIC VIDEO)
Sage Francis has got to be one of your favorite rappers. He has been one of the most lyrical artists in the game since the 90’s and consistently takes his music to the next level. Having just released his SICK TO DEATH mixtape and being interviewed on HuffPost, Francis has also announced his next LP Copper Gone as well as tour.
In this track Blue, Francis uses literary devices of all kind to raise awareness of PTSD, or shell-shock, affecting soldiers that are coming home. As he said to HuffPost, “The war is coming home now, and not in the way we expected.” In the chorus, he repeats the line, “The hottest part of the flame is blue,” directly referring to the passion burning inside soldiers that are coming home. In one of his best songs yet, Francis shows support to all those affected by war. He gets real deep.
Be sure to keep this one on repeat.
