With his realistic yet hopeful rap lyrics Chicago-born rapper/producer Saba is taking over the rap music scene with his third studio LP ‘Few Good Things’ and premieres album’s film February 11th
The 14-song LP also features notable collaborations, including Pivot Gang, Black Thought, Krayzie Bone, 6LACK, Smino, Mereba, Fousheé, Benjamin Earl Turner, and more.
The dynamic record includes new standout, ‘Still’ (feat. 6LACK and Smino), in addition to the previously released singles, ‘Survivor’s Guilt‘ with fellow Chicago rapper G Herbo, the Krayzie Bone-assisted ‘Come My Way‘, hard-hitting solo track ‘Stop That‘, and the funk-laden ‘Fearmonger‘ with Daoud.
Saba says, “The concept of ‘Few Good Things’ is the realization of self after a search for exterior fulfillment,” shared Saba on the inspiration behind the album’s title. “It is the satisfaction and completeness you gain by simply living a life that is yours. Few is a small number, but few is not lonely. In the face of all adversity, a few good things is recognizing and accepting blessings. Few is to count them, one by one – an empty glass is full of air, an empty bank is full of lessons., and an empty heart is full of memories. Few good things is to grow comfortable with the empty, and despite that, finding your fullness.”
Produced by Partizan in association with SoundCloud and Pogi Studios, the poignant and touching film is directed and written by award-winning filmmaker C.T. Robert and explores the roots of Saba’s desire for exterior fulfillment and his recognition of the fulfillment he’s already felt by simply living a life that was meant for him with those he’s loved. Using Few Good Things as the sonic backdrop, the film weaves together a few selected tracks from the album with the collage of sounds one might expect to hear making their way through Saba’s hometown in the West Side of Chicago.
The tour launches in Europe and the U.K. with support from English rapper, singer, and songwriter ENNY on U.K. dates and Dutch-Sudanese R&B singer-songwriter Gaidaathroughout Europe. The North American leg includes support from Charlotte-bred Dreamville rapper Luteand Los Angeles artist Amindi.
