Chance the Rapper
By Jack Barnes
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.” Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
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.
