Sage The Gemini had quickly settled into a groove. The precocious Fairfield, Ca. native's career started off with a shot, with singles like "Red Nose" and the Iamsu!-featuring "Gas Pedal" immediately earning tractions at clubs and in dorm rooms in the Bay Area and throughout the country. Now, however, he finds himself in a bit of hot water over cheating allegations, and has decided to recuse himself from social media altogether. Sage took to Twitter today (July 2) to announce to his fans a departure from that platform, Instagram and everything in between. Lamenting that his name had been dragged through the mud--and suggesting that the incriminating screenshots were Photoshopped and were not, in fact, his doing--Sage thanked his supporters for their kind words and promised to "work harder and promote another way." At press time, Sage's account (complete with its 119,000 followers) was still active.

In addition to his solo material, Sage has been fortunate to appear on high-profile singles and remixes, including that of Chris Brown's "Loyal." His debut album, Remember Me, sported features from the likes of August Alsina, Eric Bellinger and even Justin Bieber. As hyphy was exported from the Bay and crept down to Los Angeles--and was repurposed by DJ Mustard and his disciples as ratchet, becoming the dominant sound at Top 40 in the process--Sage persevered, toning down his hometown's weirdness and keeping its basest (and bass-est) elements.
