21 Savage pulled a savage move and did not drop his album, after all.
This is not the first, but second date change to Savage’s album drop date. The project, I Am > I Was, was supposedly meant to drop sometime in October. Throughout the last few months of 2018, the Georgia rapper was dropping hints to what seemed like an album release date. Then once October came along, the release seemed more and more of a sure thing:

However, 21 was quiet come October and fans were still waiting. Finally, he tweeted an exact date “12-7-18,” but everyone was disappointed last night when he posted nothing but the album artwork and an IG story announcing a new date “12-21-18.”
Dam I forgot to drop my album my bad y’all

It could be that the Saint Laurent Don was just hyping everyone up for the final date, but either way everyone is still eager to hear the project in all its glory. 21’s debut album, Issa Album, earned the No. 2 spot on U.S. Billboard’s 200 chart, and he was also featured in Post Malone’s “Rockstar” which hit No.1 on Billboard’s 100 chart. All that is left to do is wait till December 21st and hope the rapper officially comes through the heat!
