5 Songs That Made You A Fan: Saba

Saba has been on Chicago’s rap scene for a few years.  I was first introduced to his music in high school when I visited Ruby Hornet quite often.  Saba’s music appealed to me because of his jazz samples and live instrumentation.  His flows were also unlike anyone’s i’d heard. Saba’s production is also very exclusive, with his best coming from his collaborations with Martin $ky.  Sab and super group Pivot have been the west side’s premier rap act since I could remember.  Saba has definitely grown into one of Chicago top live performers.  He brings an energy to the stage and demands both attention and participation. Here are 5 songs from Saba that showed his genius early on.
