Sage the Gemini

Commenters online love the way he looks—“OMG, like Drake but even more adorable!” for an uncomfortably representative paraphrase—but there’s a lot more going on with Bay Area rapper and producer Sage the Gemini, of course. At 18 years old, he produced his own grassroots hit “Gas Pedal” in his bedroom studio, delivering an unexpectedly catchy monotone hook alongside a feature by Bay mainstay Iamsu! and catapulting himself to the edge of pop popularity. His full-length debut came out in March, and he’s kept up a steady momentum since—and maybe one day, the Internet will say, “Oh, Drake? He’s like a Sage the Gemini guy, right?” Don’t skip Iamsu!’s set, either—he’s had a hand (or a hook) in too many songs to list here, and you’ll remember that you like him as soon as you hear him.
