Chicago’s Hometown Heroes Saba & No ID Drop ‘hue_man Nature’

Chicago rap virtuoso and Pivot Gang leader Saba and super-producer and the “Godfather of Chicago Hip Hop” No ID serve up a new collaborative single and music video titled hue_man nature. It heralds the upcoming arrival of their first joint mixtape From the private collection of Saba & No ID out later this summer via Artium Recordings.

A classy guitar loop encircles a thumping bassline and head-nodding groove on “hue_man nature.” Atop the lively soundscape, Saba darts through the negative space, twisting lines that, on paper, could have been delivered at any point throughout rap’s history (“The mics I’ve touched, they might leave dust”) into new, knottier shapes. By the track’s end, this insistence on boiling a sentiment down to its essential element helps Saba land some of his most slyly incisive, personal barbs to date:

“Damn/I was going through it, didn’t say shit/Damn/You was busy asking me for favors.” The stunning music video sees Saba rapping the track in an expansive desert scene, backdropped by cotton-candy sunset skies and sweeping sand dunes in an environment that feels other-worldly.”

“hue_man nature” arrives on the heels of their first collaborative debut single “Back in Office.” Listen to “hue_man nature” and press play on the music video below.
