Slaine vs. Sage Francis War Is Over

Pacifist observers of the ongoing beef between Providence indie rap hero Sage Francis and Southie rhyme king Slaine should be excited to know that the Internet-fueled feud between the two heavyweights has not ended in a blood bath. Sources on the ground at this past night's Scroobius Pip show at The Paradise report that while the two finally had a heated exchange in person, no punches were thrown, nor were any weapons pulled. I think I speak on behalf of all mature rap fans when I say that this is a good thing, and not just because a Slaine-Sage rumble would have likely left the 'Dise in disrepair for several weeks. There are too many white collar goons out there inflicting pain and horror on those of us who live check-to-check for our blue collar icons to be warring. Well done gentlemen, though it would have been sweet to get a few dis tracks out of this. For more, check Sage's uncharacteristically apologetic blog entry.
