|PRAISE FOR SABA|
“His most affecting tracks celebrate nuance; they often manage to be joyful and tragic,
triumphant and anxiety-inducing, all at once”
“Through Saba’s inner turmoil, he finds his most powerful and diaristic” storytelling.”
“Sell-out shows have been a long time coming for the rapper,
who’s been a streaming success with Australian listeners”
“In mining such intensely personal subject matter Saba has found that
the more honest he is with his own life and experiences, the more people connect”
“A beautiful project with so much replay value it’s astounding”
The AU Review
“Lush and funky”
“Honesty and humility knows no bounds”

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. The Chicago polymath is preparing for the release of the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2018 album CARE FOR ME, for which he earned honours as one of the Chicago Tribune’s Chicagoans of the Year and has performed 100+ shows worldwide.
CARE FOR ME is a significant and devastating release that finds Saba grappling with the aftermath of his cousin John Walt’s 2017 murder. “The specificity with which Saba renders his personal inventory of survivor’s guilt, toxic relationships and internal struggles while swimming against a rising tide of systemic injustice, elevates CARE FOR ME from mere tragedy to living tribute,” said NPR, naming the release their #1 Hip-Hop Album of the Year.
Saba began making music at age 8 and was writing and producing songs by early adolescence. Building a recording studio in his grandmother’s basement on the Westside of Chicago, he and a group of neighbourhood friends formed Pivot Gang and began taking trains across the city to join creative youth organizations and perform at open mics. These experiences sharpened his writing and performance skills, and he has continued to build home studios where he is self-taught on a variety of musical instruments.
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. 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.
