Be On The Look-Out: Artist of the Week- Sage Bravo

Malcolm Peoples, better known as Sage Bravo, was born March 15th, 1985 in
West Baltimore, MD. Eldest of three siblings, he has been musically gifted
since he could talk. Coming from a upbringing with his mother being an
addict, and his grandmother being spiritual and in church,
Sage had no other choice but to gain attention from God given talents,
hence, his music. His name speaks for itself. Sage meaning one of wisdom,
accentuates his well detailed, knowledge influenced, street savvy lyrics,
along with a plethora of different styles and impeccably solid flow. Bravo,
coming from his high-school friend, and long time teammate Shandon "Rockey"
Smith, was inspired when Sage would spit and it resulted in Rockey saying
"Bravo, Bravo!!”. Multi-talented, Malcolm learned many of the major aspects
of the music business without going to college, or without being taught. He
also taught himself the ins and outs of production hardware, software, and
terms. Also educated in music theory along with history of great musicians,
his influences stretch as far as David Ruffin of the Temptations, Marvin
Gaye, and Sam Cooke, to modern day influences such as Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco,
Kanye West, Nas, and Joe Budden. He never lacks motivation.
