Why Rapper Saba Thinks Bucket Lists Are So Important

Show + Tell with Saba

Remember how much fun Show + Tell was back in kindergarten? You’d get to bring in something cool from your home life, share it with all your friends at school, and tell them all about it. Worlds collided! It was the best. It’s how we made all our BFFs. Well, get ready for NYLON’s Show + Tell update, in which we ask our favorite artists to show us something from their lives and tell us all about it, leaving us all feeling like we’re friends for life. Or something like that.

Saba is a rapper, but some of his aspirations reach outside of music. For this episode of Show +Tell, the 22-year-old lets us in on what items he has on his bucket list.

Some include painting with Bob Ross, writing a book, and playing basketball with his childhood hero Tracy McGrady. A diverse range of goals, that’s for sure. In the video, Saba also weighs in on why these dreams—and just dreams, in general—are so important: “The only difference between people who go through with [their dreams] and the people who don’t is just whether they believe they could or not.”

Dream big and dream far always, dear readers. Check out more of his insight above.
