The fourth and final single off of Saba’s forthcoming album, Few Good Things, has arrived just before the project is set to release on Friday, February 4. “Survivor’s Guilt” recruits fellow Chicago hip-hop artist G Herbo for this emphatic display of Saba’s rapping ability.
Dauod and daedaePivot deliver their most bass driven track yet across their work on the previous singles. It’s a style that we don’t often see Saba take, but he is able to shine just as much as ever, delivering bar after bar. Beginning with a sample saying, “Tell a story about,” Saba embarks on a journey of his upbringing, exploring the survivor’s guilt he struggles with after going through so much growing up. He speaks on capitalism, family issues, growing up in poverty, the death of his cousin Walter, and more, before entering a chant-style hook. G Herbo advances these ideas in his verse, rapping from his own perspective of growing up in Chicago.
“Survivor’s Guilt” also comes with the announcement of exciting information surrounding Few Good Things. Monday, January 31 will be the first chance to watch Few Good Things: The Short Film, a project in collaboration with film director C.T. Robert and multi-media journalist Brandon “Jinx” Jenkins. The full tracklist was also released, with some regular names appearing as features such as Smino, Joseph Chilliams, and Pivot Gang, along with a host of new names including Mereba, 6LACK, Fousheé, SiR, Black Thought, and more.
Anticipation is through the roof for Few Good Things - in the meantime you’ll want to have “Survivor’s Guilt” in rotation. Listen below:
