Faustin Lenon, better known by his stage name Sagat, is an American rapper. Sagat also works as a producer under another alias, Jump Chico Slamm (or Jump "Chico" Slamm).

He had a major hit in 1994 with "Why Is It? (Funk Dat)". The song was originally titled "Fuk Dat" but was changed to gain radio airplay. It was run frequently on MTV and its video was featured on Beavis & Butthead.[citation needed]

In 1994 he produced a follow up single, "Luvstuff". "Luvstuff" was remixed by Armand Van Helden. "Luvstuff" was released by FFRR Records and gained play in clubs in the UK. These songs charted at Christmas time on the UK Singles Chart in 1993 and 1994.[1] "Luvstuff" gained support from DJs such as Pete Tong, Jon Carter and Judge Jules.

In 1994 he released his album, My Poem Is... The World According To Sagat, containing his hits "Funk Dat" and "Luvstuff". It was released on the New York house label, Maxi Records. He recorded one record, Mr. Phat, under the alias Blaksam.
