Sage Francis – Sick Of Wasting (Mixtape)

blame it on Shake June 17, 2009

After a few year hiatus, Sage Francis is back with the 5th installment of his Sick Of series. As a huge Sage fan, I’m extremely excited for this!

I wasn’t sure if I would ever release another mix of this sort after the last one, but it’s been a couple years since my last official album and I’ve accumulated a large number of “left over” tracks that never found their way onto an official album. I also opened up the 4-track vault this year and was able to unearth some solid material that dates back to 1996.

My music career, as most people know it, essentially began with the Sick of Waiting mixtape in 1999. Now that I’ve typed that out I’ve realized that we’re essentially celebrating the Sick of mixtape series’ 10th birthday. Hot damn. It seems like just yesterday I was dubbing all the original tapes, cutting and pasting the album covers, writing out the album info on the stickers, and selling them hand-to-hand at shows. Time (f)lies. Sage Francis
