The nine-song project features the Atlanta rhymer spitting gritty bars over Metro Boomin’s sinister productions. Among the highlights include the eerie-sounding “X (Bitch)” and the braggadocios banger “Real N—-.”
On the soothing “Ocean Drive,” Savage is in celebratory mode as he boasts about his rags-to-riches success while sipping wine in Miami.
“Came from nothin’, n—- we as poor / Eviction notices all on the door / Take out trash for some school clothes / I’m the one that the streets choose,” he raps, adding, “Now I’m on Ocean Drive sipping codeine with the top down / 20 grand on me, lot of jewelry and a Glock nine.”
It’s good to see two rap titans in the game team up on a collaborative project. 21 Savage was recently enshrined into XXL‘s 2016 Freshman Class. Meanwhile, hitmaker Metro Boomin has become one of the most sought-after producers in the game at the young age of 22.
Outside of this mixtape, 21 Savage is slated to release his debut album, Slaughter King, in December.
