Saba vaulted his way from a local mainstay to a national heavyweight this year on the heels of his ultra-talented Bucket List Project release that has sprouted legs that have carried him throughout the year and across the world. Just before the big Lolla weekend hit with full force Saba, fresh off a Stix Jam performance at the Jordan Store on State St earlier this week, offered up the much-awaited visual rendering for his standout single “World In My Hands” featuring Smino and Legit.
Here, Saba and the rest of the subjects of the video stay just out of focus, the camera panning below the eye-line as the west side native illustrates the motifs of the single as a sort of animated maestro spurred on by the creative ingenuity of fellow local Tom Vin. True to the project, several more locals pop up throughout the video to share feelings from their own bucket lists, keep an eye out for the Loren, MfN Melo and Westley Parker cameos that pop up. Get into the video above and much more coming soon on Saba and the whole Pivot Gang.
