Chicago rapper Saba is an absolute force. Since releasing ‘CARE FOR ME,’ Saba has gone on to tour the world, but not without feeding hungry fans new music in the form of an impressive singles run. The latest installment in his post-‘CARE FOR ME’ existence, the winding “Where It’s At,” showcases the rapper’s penchant for moving music forward and bending flows to his will. With a woozy and optimistic flow, Saba presents a look into his journey to the present. His languid delivery is reminiscent of some of the bubbling cuts of 2016’s Bucket List Project, paired well with the grey tones Saba has sunk into and claimed for himself.
Hearing Saba wax poetic, rapping “Peace of mind, I’ve finally found,” we come away with the notion that Saba’s healing is complete as can be. Produced by the trusted daedaePIVOT, with some additional work from Saba himself, “Where It’s At” seems to answer all of our post-album questions. The clink of percussion and Saba’s uncanny ability to stretch his vocals like taffy make this an irresistible entry in Saba’s airtight discography.
