Musab 'Sab the Artist' Saad is an American recording artist, rapper, song writer, record producer and music executive from Minneapolis, Minnesota, currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada.[1]

Career[edit]

Known first by the moniker Beyond and later as Musab, Sab the Artist was a member of the Headshots crew before he, along with Sean 'Slug' Daley, Anthony 'Ant' Davis and Brent 'Saadiq' Sayers, founded indie hip hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment.[2]

Sab (as Beyond) had the label's very first release Comparison[3][4] and is credited as the inspiration behind Headshots' super group Dynospectrum.

The 2007 album Slicks Box was Sab's first official project not released by Rhymesayers Entertainment, instead coming on Oakland based Hieroglyphics Imperium Recordings [5][6]

Long known as a hip-hop artist, Sab's recent projects, including his 2010 EP Sab the Artist and the full length album H.G.H. (Heaven, Girls, Hell) he is currently working with Ultra Chorus of Minneapolis, MN are instead a fusion of "Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, and Electronic sounds".[7]

On February 4, 2011, Rhymesayers Entertainment announced, Sab the Artist would be a part of The Family Tour [8]
