Late last year, Chicago’s Saba leapt onto the scene, both literally and figuratively, when he and Chance The Rapper debuted their joyous collaborative single “Angels.” Fast forward three months, one cerebral Food & Liquor-inspired visual and a feature on Chaz French‘s “What Ya Say,” and Saba’s positioning himself to become a household name.
Earlier this week, Saba returned with yet another proper offering, releasing the collaborative effort “GPS” with his pops, Chandlar. The track offers yet another glimpse at Saba’s rhyme power, introspective yet sharply-focused, all anchored by a stud production from Cam O’bi and a hook that won’t be easy to shake anytime soon. So yeah, it’s time to get hip to your boy, ’cause 2016’s looking ripe for a takeover. Peep Saba’s new single “GPS” below and hold tight for the next transmission in the lead-up to his forthcoming solo debut, which is slated to arrive later this year.
If you’re looking to catch your boy in-the-flesh, make sure you get over to Brooklyn’s Rough Trade next Wednesday, January 20th, where he’ll be performing along Cousin Stizz, Zelooperz and Big Leano at Pigeons And Planes No Ceilings showcase.
