Video: Chance the Rapper ft. Saba – “Angels”

Saba Tours Europe in Support of Jazz Cartier This Month


Critical Praise for Saba:

“Saba is up next.” – Billboard

“Saba is savvy with words.” – TheFADER

From poet to exploratory rapper, Saba could be the new voice of Chicago’s West Side. Noisey

“One of Chicago rapper Saba’s greatest strengths in a still developing arsenal is a graceful capacity for capturing the weight of growing up in the scarred city with an insight and mournfulness typically reserved for older observers.” – Pigeons and Planes

“Saba’s been deconstructing the space-time continuum for years.” – Passion of the Weiss

The Video:

Saba joins Chance the Rapper in the official music video for “Angels,” directed by Austin Vesely. The single first debuted during a live performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in October. Says Saba, “I’ve known Chance for a few years now. We met at an open mic in Chicago called YOUMedia. The first time we worked together was on Acid Rap‘s ‘Everybody’s Something.’ He just reached out to me, very organic, nothing crazy. We were both just fans of each other. Since then, we’ve just continued to work and build a relationship and I think the latest release, ‘Angels,’ will really showcase that.” Saba also worked with Chance on The Social Experiment‘s Surf project. Explains Saba, “I think it’s still early in all of our careers so I’m pretty positive there will be more collaborations between all of us.”

Born to a family of musical talent, Saba grew up to the sounds of soul, R&B, and jazz thanks to his father, whom he featured on his single “GPS” earlier this year. He began to play piano at the age of seven, and soon after he started to experiment with his sound on beat making software. At age 16, Saba joined the open mikes at YOUMedia Center and Young Chicago Authors, which he credits with giving him the confidence and charisma to perform onstage. With all these tools in his arsenal Saba has developed a career sound with appeal that spans from the staunchest old-school hip hop heads to a new generation of rap fans. Touring Europe this month in support of Jazz Cartier, Saba is currently working on a project slated for release this Fall.
