There’s something special about having the opportunity to connect with those who inspire you. For his most recent single, rising artist Saba connected with Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
“This song is so important to me. Bone was the reason I started rapping in the first place,” Saba tweeted.
Both Krayzie Bone and Saba teamed up for a song that speaks to the next artist who may be inspired by Saba’s work. Backed by production from daedaePIVOT and Daoud, Saba uses “Come My Way” as a vehicle to give hope to those who are daydreaming about becoming something they’ve always hoped to be despite the obstacles in their way.
“This song also takes place in that nostalgic kind of setting. I’m describing many things that are normal on the westside of Chicago, so that it plays like just any other day. Pretty stagnant but having so much life. ‘We ain’t got no time to relax.’ A harsh reality for so many people experiencing this type of poor. The focus is on work and survival,” he wrote about “Come My Way” with Krayzie Bone.
“The song is not written as to feel sad or sorry for ourselves. It is a reality, not one I or anyone else can change, so this song is getting up the next day and getting to work, or getting to it however you provide, but just moving on in that fashion. “And then we’ll be good.” Throughout whatever adversity, and challenges, and otherwise just fucked up shit comes our way.”
“Come My Way” is the latest offering from Saba’s upcoming album, Few Good Things. It’s set to drop on February 4, but you can check out this track in the meantime.
