Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

In the first week of April, Chicago, Illinois MC Saba released his sophomore album, CARE FOR ME. The 24-year-old artist many Heads first heard on Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap or his Coloring Book has stood out on his own with a strong and growing body of work.

Following 2016’s Bucket List Project, CARE FOR ME is a deep dive into mental health and current state of mind. However, that does not mean that the West Side of Chicago native makes music that is always a weighty listen. The album has moments of joy, flashes of nostalgia, and lots of personal revelation. Standing with the musicians who he used on the album, Saba performs four songs from the release and shows its spectrum of feelings.

Notably, the band contains Saba’s father, Chandler, providing some background vocals. Additionally, the LP’s co-producers Daoud and daedaePIVOT are part of the act. During a charming Tiny Desk concert, Saba takes viewers on a tour for why his LP is so unique. He begins at opener “BUSY / SIRENS,” veers into the Chance-assisted “LOGOUT,” and then closes with candor on a medley of “HEAVEN ALL AROUND ME” and “LIFE.”

Ambrosia For Heads named CARE FOR ME to its list of 2018’s best albums, so far. In the last month, Saba appeared on Noname’s Room 25.
