Saba‘s Bucket List Project encouraged both himself and fans to live out their dreams — to dream big, and then act on it. “World In My Hands,” which features Smino and LEGIT, encompasses the project’s driving theme pretty well.
The Chicago rapper has given that song a video, now, where he has fans send in videos saying what kind of actions are on their bucket list, all while Saba holds worlds in the palm of his hands.
“I wanted to show the Bucket List Project visually with this one,” Saba said in a press email, “so you’ll see a lot of shots similar to the album cover and a lot of people talking about what’s on their bucket list, similar to how they do on the project.
“I literally wanted the world in my hands. I wanted the video to focus specifically on our hand movements, so there are a lot of cool things popping up throughout the song. I could definitely credit the old HP commercials or even Talib Kweli as being an inspiration for what the song came to be visually, but I wanted to throw a different spin on it.”
