Paul “Sage” Francis (born November 18, 1976 in MiamiFlorida) is a  artist based inProvidenceRhode Island

Noted for his intense flow and sharp wit, Francis has won acclaim both as a freestyle battler and as an unapologetic, intellectual lyricist. Francis uses a broad emotional palette to address a wide range of personal, cultural, and  issues. His unconventional style and persona have given him crossover appeal, but at the same time alienated some hip-hop listeners. 

Prior to embarking on a full-time career as an MC, Francis displayed his skills in . During the late 19, he recorded his first demo tape (1996), fronted the now defunct Providence hip-hop band Art Official Intelligence, and hosted a weekly slot on  radio station WRIU (the “True School Session”). He also formed the Non-Prophets and released a 12” (Drop Bass/Bounce/I Keep Calling, Emerge Records, 1999), following up in 2003 with their first full-length offering, Hope. Francis is a contemporary of  artists such asSLuGEyedeaSole and the anticon. collective. He is also loosely affiliated with the vague underground hip-hop super-group The Orphanage.

As a solo performer, Francis won the MC battle at the 2000 Scribble Jam, and in 2001 he came close to repeating as champion (semi-finalist) while performing as his “” alter ego, “Xaul Zan”. Francis released his first proper solo album, Personal Journals, on Anticon. in 2002. He toured with a live band on the Live Band Dead Poet Tour to support it.
