Mr. Chris Farley... I really don't think an explanation is needed.
Connor Oberst. He's a brilliant lyric poet and one of the most well-read musicians I've ever come across. He's easy to relate to when you feel the worst and he has the most glorious, broken voice I've ever heard.
Sage Francis. Sage is not only gifted, but he is also intelligent. His freestyle's are magnificent and his ideals that he raps about are complex and incredibly interesting.
