Chicago is so full of sharp, intuitive young artists, and they all seem to really love working with each other; it’s just a beautiful thing to see. Last year, the gifted young rapper Saba showed up on “Emerald Street,” a song from Jamila Woods’ languid and lovely HEAVN album. And now Saba, who produces as well as raps, has put together a remix of that same track, translating its soulful sprawl into something a little more jittery and adding an extra verse in the process. Listen to both the remix and the original track below.
HEAVN is out now; listen to it while it’s still warm outside.
