21 Savage released the biggest album of 2024 so far last month. His new project american dream has already spent two weeks at the very top of the Billboard 200 and is expected to challenge Morgan Wallen's One Thing At A Time for a potential third week on top. It also had two songs, "redrum" and "nee-nah" debut in the top 10 of the Hot 100. "redrum" in particular has stuck around placing at the number 10 spot in it's second week on the chart.

Savage has also been making the media rounds in the wake of the album's success. Most notably, he popped up on Shannon Sharpe's Club Shay Shay show. The show has already been the setting for some of the biggest stories of 2024. Right at the start of the year, Katt Williams appeared on the show as a guest to make all kinds of wild claims. Comparatively, Savage's interview is much more focused. In one particularly notable moment, he discussed being shot in explicit detail taking fans on a play-by-play of the entire sequence. Now he's popping up in yet another interview, this time to play video games with Adin Ross.
