They say diamonds are made under pressure and British-Grenadian artist Sågaboi is that diamond in the rough ready to put the North East of England on the map. The rapper/singer-songwriter has been a prominent face in his city of Newcastle Upon Tyne for years now and is currently Artist in Residence at Sage Gateshead, turning heads with his unique sound that mixes infectious melodies with eye-opening bars and real northern grit. Såga’s fearlessly experimental take on modern rap draws comparisons to the likes of Slowthai, Kanye West and The Weeknd. He’s impossible to put in a box and always sonically subverts your expectations
