Sage The Gemini

The organic buzz is the Holy Grail for an aspiring artist. With the help of his real fans, Bay Area native Sage The Gemini already has two singles that have hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2013, and he doesn’t even have an album out yet.

“Gas Pedal” peaked at No. 29, and its follow-up, “Red Nose,” hit No. 52, and both garnered new attention for the 21-year-old rapper/producer. The records also caught up with California club kids and inspired fan-made viral dance videos that were posted on Vine and YouTube. “It got out there by itself,” Sage explains. “‘Gas Pedal’ got a million views in a few months.”—B.J. Steiner
