It’s been over three years since Savage Mode dropped and we have been waiting anxiously for the sequel ever since. The first 21 Savage & Metro Boomin collab tape was considered an instant classic and a standout project in 2016, yielding standout singles “X” & “No Heart.” Recently, rumors have spread saying that Savage Mode 2 was slated to arrive at the beginning of March, but we still haven’t gotten the project.
Earlier this week, 21 Savage took to social media to hint when Savage Mode 2 would be dropping. The “No Heart” rapper put “Friday the 13th” on his Instagram story which would fittingly match his persona, but fans did not receive new music. Since the beginning of the new year, Savage has been quiet in releasing new music both as a feature and a solo artist.
Without a doubt, Metro Boomin and 21 Savage are a dynamic duo that’s unmatched when it comes to the rap game. Metro’s melodically dark production fits perfectly over 21’s boastful lyrics and captivating cadence. Since the first Savage Mode was released, 21 and Metro Boomin have given fans bangers over the years. Metro released projects Not All Heroes Wear Capes and Without Warning with Offset showcase their hard-hitting collaboration skills. Even 21 Savage’s latest project, I am > I was, has songs such as “asmr” that displays the talent and chemistry between the two artists.
Although it’s March 13th and we have yet to hear Savage Mode 2, fans remain at the edge of their seat for the new music.
