Karma completes trio that started with Infinity and Duality

Abbotsford hip hop artist and activist Saint Soldier (whose real name is Amrit Saggu) has completed his final album in a trilogy that started with Infinity and Duality.

Karma will be available on all streaming platforms as of Saturday, June 20, and will be accompanied by a music video premiere for Role Models.

Two tracks off Karma – Assumptions and Elon – have already been released with lyric videos and, following the album release, there will be three music video premieres.

Saggu describes the three albums as “a cycle.”

“Though these albums seem to say it as it is, there’s such an infinite depth to understanding that you can never truly know. That’s why the body of work is summed up in 3 letters: I.D.K.,” he says.

In Karma, Saggu pairs up with artists almost entirely from British Columbia: producers Empwer, Hunny Beatz, Rajzilla, DJ Hark, Skinny Local, Meemo, and DJ Big Smoke; UK producer KIRWVN; and vocal features from Rozsa (Saggu’s wife), Neesh, Junk and Known.

Saggu says he is still a warrior for peace, but of a different kind. With Karma, he veers from his previous path of activism to be reflective and personal.

“Ten years ago I felt like changing the world for the better was an objective of mine but I began to lose peace in that. But if I can’t find peace in myself, I can’t give peace to others. I became reclusive. Now I just share what gives me peace,” he says.

Saggu says that choosing the tracks for Karma was challenging, and he wrote close to 80 songs. He says he takes his writing process seriously, and describes it as “evolving greatly as I experiment and learn from other artists.”

“I see hip hop lyricism as a puzzle; the pieces are painted with words and shaped with sounds. They all need to fit to complete the picture.”

He says that each song may be a puzzle but the album is a puzzle of its own.

Now that the trilogy is complete, Saggu says he is reinventing himself.

“I don’t know if I’ll be releasing any more albums under Saint Soldier but there will be singles.”
