Issa release date!
Coming off a breakout year with 2016’s Savage Mode, 21 Savage is ready to unleash his debut album Issa, which is now due next month.
Taking to Instagram, 21 announced that his forthcoming LP will be released July 7. The cover art features an animated Savage with a double cup in front of palm trees and behind a pile of money.
To go along with the announcement, 21 has teamed up with New Zealand producer Montell2099 for “Hunnid on the Drop,” a new track that was released through Red Bull Sound Select.
Over Montell’s bare bones production, Savage rhymes about being a one-stop shop with drugs, lean, and pills. Later, he adds: “I fucked your baby mama, she cannot give top / I make Savage music, ni**a, this is not hip-hop.”
“I’m super excited to share this track with the world,” said Montell2099. “When I found out 21 Savage was keen to collab, I went on a beat making spree! Within a couple days I had at least 20 ideas made for him. He chose the third beat I played for him and did his thing in the booth. Within a couple hours the track was done.”
