[TOO-CONSCIOUS HIP-HOP] When you’re a politically active rapper living in America, you certainly never have to dig deep for inspiration. Sage Francis, perhaps the grandfather of socially conscious indie-rap, knows this better than most. For the last 15 years Francis has been preaching to the masses about the evils of politics, society and the media. His latest album, Copper Gone, hasn’t deviated from the formula, brimming with anger, fear and internal dialogue. But you can only hear the same lecture so many times. At this point, I’m not sure that I can sit through another class.
