It's been almost exactly a year since 21 Savage truly broke out with the release of his joint album with Metro Boomin, Savage Mode. A dark, sinister release from the streets-rooted rapper, he's now exploring much lighter sounds on his new release, as well as new producers. The album, ISSA, hit streaming services at Midnight and even has 21 attempting r'n'b-pop crossover territory, with the DJ Mustard-produced track "FaceTime" (thoughts on this???).
Although the 14-track effort has a fair amount of explorations and dabbling in less-trap heavy sounds, there's still some haunting/melodic production and typically savage but braggadocio rhyming with "Bank Account." The track, which is apparently self-produced as well, features a strumming guitar line through out and drum intermissions, and thus makes for one of the catchier album cuts.
What's your favorite cut off ISSA so far? Does it live up to your expectations?
Roulette clips, send a roulette hit
Pull up on your bitch, she say I got that ruler dick
Spray your block down, we not really with that rural shit
Glock cocked now, I don't really give no fuck 'bout who I hit
Yeah, your bitch, she get jiggy with me
Keep that siggy with me
Bitch, I'm Mad Max, you know I got Ziggy with me
