UK Dancehall/Hip-Hop legend Yung Saber has unveiled No Photocopies – The Documentary, on March 28th via his Youtube channel. This follows and builds on the release of his latest EP of the same title on February 15th, 2024 via his imprint Yung Saber Music. In this gripping documentary, we witness the highs and lows of a single father from South-East London navigating parenthood while pursuing his passion for music. Through intimate interviews and surprise appearances, this documentary explores the importance of music and mental health. Yung Saber has garnered over 10 million streams across platforms and counting. He stormed the UK Dancehall scene with his track ‘Tump & Kick’, which became an international hit and earned radio plays across the globe in 2021. Influenced by the likes of Super Cat and Vybz Kartel, Yung Saber’s sound can be compared to J Hus, Govana, MoStack, Not3s, Krept & Konan and Yxng Bane.

Born and based in South London, Yung Saber’s musical roots are deep, with both of his parents being reggae DJs; his dad a producer related to the late reggae legend Dennis Brown. Yung Saber is a single father of three, and all of his hard work and dedication he says, is to change the circle, meaning to ensure his kids have a better life than he had growing up as a youngster. 

In addition to his musical ventures, he boasts achievements as a freelance A&R, model and actor. As an actor, Saber has been featured in Noel Clarke’s film trilogy Brotherhood, the Boiler Room documentary Migrant Sound (which explored the music and culture brought to the UK from the Wind-rush generation), and most recently featured in Rapman’s 2019 blockbuster Blue Story. He has also been involved in various modelling campaigns for the sportswear brand Ellesse. The release of No Photocopies – The Documentary is just another addition to his extensive catalogue of creative work.

Yung Saber divulged: “So what inspired the documentary is a campaign I did a few months before releasing my EP. The campaign was called No Photocopies and it was done in strength of Movember Celebrated in November and it’s a men’s mental health support group. After receiving so much good feedback and reaching over 1 million people, it only made sense to do a documentary. To be able to talk about my joys/struggles, of being a single father And letting the world into my world is a beautiful thing and it’s definitely something I needed.”
