We caught Saba at his sold-out Middle East show back in November last year, when he proved he commands the stage. Saba has gained widespread recognition with his verse in Chance the Rapper’s song “Everybody’s Something” on the Acid Rap mixtape. (They later collaborated again on the song “Angels,” and performed live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. )
Coming off this whirlwind collaboration, Saba has since announced his first solo-tour with his independently released Bucket List Project. This release exemplifies his solo career; in it, he explores social issues through his spirituality and vulnerability.
