So Many Shrimp Radio Ep. 3 — Saba

image1-3

An acclaimed rapper and producer, Saba comes from Chicago’s West Side—“the part of the city that they don’t be talking about.” His 2013 project ComfortZone and its follow-up, 2016’s Bucket List, were highly respected projects, and they capture West Side Chicago in the specific, putting his world on the map with quotidian detail and warm musical ear. His song “World In My Hands” with Smino was one of last year’s best singles.His work as a producer extended to Noname’s celebrated album Telefone, though his most high profile collaboration has been guesting as a rapper on Chance’s Acid Rap and Coloring Book projects.

Though he’s not a DJ, Saba was game to come through to David’s living room last Sunday hip us to what he’s been listening to with an adventurous DJ set, and give us an idea of where he draws his own musical inspiration. We also got to hear his response to a question thrown around on Twitter about the comparisons between his “World In My Hands” and Drake’s similar “Fake Love.”

Thanks again to Nick the Roommate for recording & engineering this project, and Tamika from Swim Team for co-producing.

  1. Good show, pretty diverse mix from Saba I like how he broke up some of the rap songs with something out of left field like that Day Wave song, I never would have checked that out on my own or thought it would be a good idea but it worked and the whole thing flowed together pretty nicely
