The acclaimed Chicago rapper-producer and Pivot Gang Co-Founder SABA has teamed up with Cleveland rapper Krayzie Bone of the trailblazing GRAMMY Award-winning hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony for new single ‘Come My Way.’
An ode to nostalgia and Saba growing up in his hometown Chicago, the latest offering is taken from Saba’s highly anticipated third solo album Few Good Things dropping on 4th February “Come My Way”, features Krayzie Bone’s signature flow adding a classic and familiar sound that helps ground the Daoud and daedaePIVOT co-produced track.
Speaking on the collaboration, Saba says: “When I think back on first discovering Bone Thugs-N-Harmony as a child, it immediately stood out to me as unique. I started paying attention and really learning how to rap from listening to them and trying to recite it. It felt honest and completely true to themselves — authentic in a way that doesn’t come around very often and in a way that will be impossible to recreate. Their mix of melody and rhythms that I had never heard is what connected with me in a way that other music just didn’t. It inspired me to be more creative.“
A successful 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 organisations 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.
With new music on his slate for 2022, Saba is prepared to continue pushing musical boundaries on his climb to rap’s upper echelon.
