Saba released one of the best rap albums of the year

Back in April, Chicago MC Saba released one of the most stunning rap albums of 2018: his emotionally-charged sophomore album Care For Me.

Nearly six months after the album was released, the Pivot Gang member performed three standouts from the album on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series. The three songs he performed were “Busy/Sirens,” “Logout” — minus Chance The Rapper — “Heaven All Around Me” and “Life.”

What makes this performance particularly cool is that Saba is joined by a lot of the forces that made his Care For Me album special: he is backed by rapper theMIND, singer Kaina,  producers Daoud Anthony and daedaePivot, and instrumentalists Cheflee and Brandon Farmer.

Saba’s dad, Chandler, who is a soul singer himself, is also there to help out.
