2002. Emerging indie-rap hero Sage Francis drops his proper solo debut album, the now-classic Personal Journals. On the cover, the champion rhymer looms as a monster with dead eyes, a captive with a clenched mouth and a burning desire to connect. When you pressed play, Sage ripped open that door, let loose his sundry alter egos, and broke out of his Rhode Island basement. Now on an ominous mission, the rhymer roamed from coast to coast, collecting shadow people, consuming their complicated internal junk, and mixing it all into his fuming mind funk. Then the emcee spat an introspective saga of broken wings, inherited scars, dirty souls, cracked pipes — and growing, glowing hope. Transformed by this dark art, the nebulous Strange Famous artist tore out his black heart, served it to the world, and made room for a new, better one. And an underground icon was born. This little gray monster stands tall as a tribute to the conflicted rookie who survived this pressure-cooker quarter-life crisis and lived long enough to lighten up. - D.X. Ferris
