10. Saba

I don’t have to tell you that Chicago has been killin’ it; over the last two or so years the hip-hop scene that had predominately become known for it’s violent drill offshoot is changing the nation’s perception of it thanks to alternative/abstract rappers like Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa. And fortunately for Saba, there’s room for more distinct rappers. His precise flow and sharp lyrics/wordplay along with detailed production are a welcome addition to the Chicago hip-hop scene.

Sounds Like: A comfortable pocket emcee with an engaging overall package of sounds.
Project(s) to Check Out: Comfort Zone
Upon First Listen: An enjoyable voice and flow complimented by intricate layered production. A surprisingly rewarding listening experience.
Notable Line(s): “Like Cassius ducking the draft and now the fight is over/ The type to love from a distance not the type that told her/ Spent three days on the rap, trash it and type it over”.
Staying Power: Chicago has been churning out immense talent as of late and Saba has the same potential to make it big as Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa.
