Chicago rapper Saba has built a name for himself as one of the most refreshing voices in rap, tackling everything from survivor's guilt to love life with razor sharp precision. His most recent album, Care For Me, just further exemplified why he deserves to be included in the conversation.
Recently, Saba's performance on NPR's always excellent Tiny Desk Concerts series provides the perfect opportunity to revisit Care For Me, with him bringing along a whole band to give these songs new life.
Stopping by the NPR offices, Saba offered up live band-backed versions of "Busy/Sirens," "Logout," and "Heaven All Around Me/Life."
Last week Saba teased his Tiny Desk performance on his Twitter, letting fans know he brought along everyone who worked on Care For Me. Not only that, but he also brought along his father, who provided backup vocals during his performance. "You're not gonna believe me when I say it," he teased the crowd. "This is Chandlar, my father."
