Saba has already proven himself to be one of Chicago’s most talented up-and-coming rappers. Now, he’s showing us his beat-crafting prowess. The Windy City lyricist takes up the role of producer for his new project, an etirely instrumental effort dubbed SpareChange! SpareChange! delivers eight new tracks from Saba, each a product of Saba’s behind-the-boards experimentation. Saba tells FADER that he intends for this project to come across as more than just vocal-less versions of his own songs, explaining that he wanted the music on SpareChange! to function as standalone productions. ”There is still a lot to learn and a lot more sounds to expand on, but I’m pretty happy with the way the project turned out. I hope people enjoy something a little different from me,” he says in a statement to FADER. Those looking for a little vocal aid on the project won’t be disappointed though; Boyang Matsopola of The O’My’s comes onboard for “Noname Gypsy Type Beat.” You can give Saba’s new instrumental offering a listen above.
