Saba TicketsTahj Malik Chandler, who is better known by the stage name Saba, gained initial recognition as a talented American rapper and record producer thanks to his verse on ÒEverybodyÕs Something," a song featured on Chance the RapperÕs mixtape Acid Rap. He and Chance the Rapper continued collaborations, and Saba become known for singing the hook on the top single of ChanceÕs album Coloring Book titled ÒAngels.Ó Saba considers his own album Bucket List Project to be a concept record. In unique artistry, his album hosts transitions from one track to another with voicemails from friends, families, colleagues and fans addressing the question of what they want to do before they die. Saba continued his masterful storytelling by following up with Care for Me, an exemplary musical craft of emotion and meditation that has been recognized by Pitchfork and Rolling Stone. His storytelling is only made that much more powerful live as he retells his life through song onstage. Get your tickets to see Saba at StubHub.
Pivot GangSaba is one of the four founders of the Pivot Gang, a group of independent Chicago rappers. The other founders include his brother Joseph Chilliams, John Walt and MFn Melo. They founded the group in 2012 during troubled times inside the historically crime-ridden Austin neighborhood of Chicago. As part of the growing independent music movement in Chicago, all of the group's music can be downloaded for free online. Their music is known to not have a specific Òsound,Ó but instead, their music is diverse from smooth soul singing to rapid, aggressive beats. In 2017, the group suffered a hard loss when John Walt, a founding member, was killed. The effect of this loss can be heard in SabaÕs album Care for Me.
