Sage the Gemini, born Dominic Woods, is a Bay area rapper and producer who spouts rhymes so casually it appears effortless. The young performer embraces curse words often enough to make your parents cringe, but they help make his point in graphic tracks like "Red Nose" and "Swerve."
Sage the Gemini is also a part of hip-hop collective The HBK Gang, otherwise known as The Heartbreak Gang. "Gas Pedal," the title track from his 2013 EP, features one of the group's founders—rapper and record producer Iamsu!. That single worked its way up to No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it both artists' first song to make it into the Top 40.
In August 2013, Sage the Gemini signed on with Universal Republic Records and is working on a full-length debut, to be followed by a support tour of U.S. concert stops. In the meantime, he's helping sell tickets as part of the bill for heavy-hitting acts like Ice Cube, as well as alongside fellow up-and-comers Kidd Swagg, LoveRance and Iamsu!, among others.
