Chicago’s Saba Defines A Hometown Hero In Debut Album “The Bucket List”

A bucket list is a list of experiences or achievements one wishes to complete in their lifetime. I have one, you have one. It’s also the influence of Chicago’s West Side native, Saba’s, project. ‘Bucket List Project‘ is a human connection that everyone can understand. Throughout ‘Bucket List Project‘, Saba features clips of friends, family, and other hometown artists such as Chance The Rapper, and Lupe Fiasco all stating their personal bucket lists for the world to hear.

“My name’s Will Fountain…Three things off my bucket list: 1) I wanna have a meal from In-N-Out, cause I live nowhere near one. 2) I wanna go one-on-one against D. Rose and 3) I wanna f**k Kylie Jenner…” The least we should do is get the man a date at In-N-Out Burger with Kylie so she can hear him out, right? Don’t worry…Tyga will be alright.

Saba’s album evokes a list of life’s most salient virtues: family, friends, where you’re from, and where you’re going.

Two years post Saba’s last mixtape, ComfortZone, since then, Saba has found his smooth spot with ‘Bucket List Project‘ balancing the perfect mix of detailed flow, and stories of his life. Such stories are powered by scenes of Chicago’s West Side, and Saba championing not just Chicago, but his neighborhood of Austin on tracks like “West Side Bound 3” featuring fellow Pivot Gang member Joseph Chilliams, and “Church/Liquor Store” with the always so lovely rapper, Noname. Saba’s album evokes a list of life’s most salient virtues: family, friends, where you’re from, and where you’re going.
