The comedian sung 21's praises on Twitter.
Seth Rogen is a big hip-hop fan. The comedian has not only worked rap into some of his sketches (who could forget he and James Franco's take on Kanye West's "Bound 2"), he's also been vocal about his fandom in interviews. In a 2015 Twitter Q&A, Rogen revealed his favorite rap albums to be Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders and The Roots’ Do You Want More?!!!?. Judging by those picks, which all happen to be 90s East Coast classics, you might be surprised to hear he's a 21 Savage fan.
Yes, Rogen made it very clear that he's been bumpin' 21's new project Issa Album, posting a screenshot of the track "Close My Eyes" with the caption "This is a fucking great album."

While he unfortunately didn't explain his 21 fandom in any greater detail, Seth went on to list a few more albums he considers to be "fucking great," from the tongue-in-cheek pick Little Mermaid OST, to Capleton's 1995 dancehall album Prophecy, to EPMD's classic Strictly Business (calling "The Steve Martin" "the best song written about a comedian ever").
