Purple Heart Recipient - SABO
Tell us about yourself and your music
NSA Entertainment’s SABO is the latest Hip-Hop prodigy this independent label is set to blaze the industry with. As a proud Colombian, this 36-year old rugged rapper has used an assortment of past struggles and influences to mold him into the dynamic character of SABO. Growing up in the Miami area, SABO relishes his memories of the hood and Military lifestyle which has molded him into the confident individual, he is today. “I want to be that person from my community that people can look up to.” With the release of several projects, he has developed a significant buzz. In today’s industry a lot of the music is recycled, said SABO. I’m versatile in terms of what I talk about and my message. Sabo’s lyrical style and delivery assimilate him to the likes of Scarface, Tupac, and Cormega. He injects some DMX and Nas affiliations into his repertoire, but SABO is an individual himself. Artists out today, aren’t what they really portray themselves as. I talk about the bad and good things I’ve done. SABO’s engaging personality stems from a childhood highlighted by learning. He believes the absence of his father made him suffer through the realization that life can’t get much worse. I’ve already been through the worst, he said. I never really had a sense of family in my life, which has made me stronger. SABO also conducted two tours in Iraq as a combat Tanker while serving in the US Army. Through all the struggles and hardships, he manages to keep making music and inspiring others as well. His determination to excel at his craft grew from the support of his family. His close friends noticed his skills and kept pushing him towards pursuing a musical career during his military years. Music has always been a part of SABO’s life. Through his early years in poetry, SABO was able to unleash a skill for writing, which correlates to his ability to compile masterful lyrics. SABO’s ultimate goal is to reach and touch everyone especially soldiers who were in combat.
“I just want to be as successful as I can be so that I can take care of the closet people around me.” “The gift to reach the people through music should not be taken for granted, so my voice shall and will be heard.” “My ambition, determination, and passion are what pushes me to limits were ordinary men would have given up”. Now located in a cut-throat music scene in West Palm Beach he finds himself working with other talented visionaries.
SABO now transfers his energy to other special projects that benefit the veteran community through raising awareness on veteran suicide prevention, homeless veteran, and plants over pills campaigns. With community partnerships, he has been able to plan, facilitate, coordinate, and execute events to benefit the Warfighter Community.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Prolonged Exposure is SABO’s 6th studio album released on July 4th, 2020. What makes this album unique is SABO attempted to place himself as a live case study through Prolonged Exposure Therapy. Once he realized the intensity and time commitment of the therapy he opted to postpone but not after revealing the different types of the therapy’s the Veteran Affairs now offer veterans.
This album is orchestrated with anthems, content, & storytelling. Some may say it is his best work to date.
What inspired you to write this release?
Life is constantly an inspiration for SABO. Might sound cliche, but with taking the good, the bad, and the ugly it transmits into music.
Describe the writing and recording process
The writing process consists of coming with a concept. Sometimes this entails already having an instrumental other time is just writing in my head and eventually placing it into song format.
The recording process is simple. Put the beat on. I attack every song differently. Each song requires a certain set of energy and attention.

Any plans to hit the road?
Absolutely, but in a safe manner where it makes sense for my safety and the safety of my fans and supporters.

Tell us about your passions
I am very passionate about life itself, constantly striving to better my situation by elevating. Another passion is to see my people and team make it while still helping my veteran’s.
What else is happening next in your world?
