A member of the Headshots crew, Sab co-founded independent hip hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment and crafted the label’s first release, Beyond “Comparison”.
His catalog exploded through Rhymesayers and has gone on to include the vinyl EP hit “Actin Rich”, “The BE-sides” tape, “Respect The Life” and “The Dynospectrum”, which brought together the talents of Musab, Slug and Ant of Atmosphere, I Self Divine of the Micronauts and Mr. Gene Poole as a supergroup of the same name. This collaboration of artists blended some of the most unique flavors in music causing an assault on the senses with every beat.
Musab began to spread his seed of infectious groundbreaking material with yet another independent hip hop label in 2007 releasing “Slicks Box” on Oakland based Hiero Imperium before spending 3 months of 2008 wowing crowds with his skill and finesse on the 40 city “Freshly Dipped” tour.
2010 was engulfed by Sab The Artist as he took fans on a voyage of endless beats and lyrical proficiency unheard of in the last decade. He stirred up a commotion while traveling the country on the “Rigamarole” Tour with Hiero label mate Pep Love in March and “The Awful Truth” Tour with Rhymesayers compatriot Abstract Rude in June, July & August, offering a 17 installment “Leak Series” and releasing the “Sab The Artist EP”.
Throughout, Sab has been working towards the release of a new album “HGH” (Heaven, Girls, Hell) with Ultra Chorus – Jeffrey Lorentzen and Chris Heidman (Sukpatch) – of Minneapolis, MN, creating a unique fusion of Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, and Electronic sounds. Whet your appetite for “HGH” with the “Sab The Artist EP”, available now via iTunes and Bandcamp.
Sab had a grand spring in 2011. He was tapped to play the main stage at the Paid Dues festival in San Bernardino, California, before joining Atmosphere, Blueprint, and Grieves & Budo on the Family Tour. The US and Canada were left in awe when Sab hit each of the 21 cities, which he serenaded before playing a wicked set on the main stage at Minnesota’s annual Soundset festival.
Sab’s newest release, titled “Love is in The Air”, is being released in collaboration with Fifth Element Online and Just Kidding Clothing. Sab set out to remind everyone just how well he can rap by hitting the lab and whipping up this gem for the summer once home off tour. The 14-track project goes hard, and there’s something on it to satisfy anyone’s musical appetite.
Sab also played the Bay Area and So Cal dates of the 2011 Vans Warped Tour’s “Bring It Back” stage.
