AUDIO MP3: Saba ft. Phoelix & BJRKNC – Stoney
Listen to a highlight from Saba’s “Bucket List Project.”
SABA’s big breakout moment came with guest appearance on Chance The Rapper’s “Angels,” which appeared on the critically-acclaimed mixtape Coloring Book earlier this year. Following that promise, he’s now delivered Bucket List Project, a full length look at what he’s all about. The effort is a strong statement, and one of its most immediate moments comes early on, with the twisting, sub-bass bounce of “Stoney.” Teaming with Phoelix and BJRKNC, the song builds from slowly from a dancy groove to a gospel-influenced coda, before riding out on a sax solo. All the while, SABA contributes hungry, technical, personality-filled rhymes that give us a good idea of his potential.
