Last week, Saba shared his latest funk-laden rap single ‘Fearmonger’ (ft. Daoud) and announced his third studio album Few Good Things coming soon. The follow up to his critically acclaimed 2018 album CARE FOR ME that found Saba grappling with the aftermath of his cousin John Walt’s 2017 murder, this next album will see him look deeper within as he explores the realization of self after a search for exterior fulfilment – Few good things is to grow comfortable with the empty, and despite that, find your fullness.
A successful Black independent artist, Saba has rooted his career in authenticity and musicality that’s made him one of his generation’s most important and unique voices. A major player in the Chicago scene who’s enviable career has seen him collaborate with and produce for the likes of Chance The Rapper, Noname, Mick Jenkins and more, following his first foray into making music at the age of 8 in his early adolescence, he built a recording studio in his Grandmother’s basement on the Westside of Chicago, where he and a group of neighbourhood friends formed Pivot Gang. They began taking trains across the city to join creative youth organizations and perform at open mics. Coming from a deeply musical family, Saba was influenced by his father, a Chicago R&B artist named Chandlar, at a young age who would bring
him to the studio with him to record sounds of soul, R&B and jazz. All experiences that developed his,sonic palette, sharpened his writing and performance skills and led him to be self-taught on a variety of, musical instruments – an innate talent and musicality that has led to support from Pitchfork (8.7 Best New Music), NPR (#1 Hip-Hop Album of the Year for CARE FOR ME), Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Fader, FACT, Complex and more.
In 2019 J. Cole tapped Saba for his Revenge of the Dreamers III project, where they featured together on the powerful closer “Sacrifices” – the track recently attaining RIAA certified Gold status. He also teamed up with frequent collaborators Noname and Smino to form the Midwest music collective Ghetto Sage and earlier this year he performed his collaboration with Audrey Nuna ‘Top Again’ on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
With new music on his slate for 2021-22, Saba is prepared to continue pushing musical boundaries on his climb to rap’s upper echelon.
