Watch the First Episode of “30 Days With 21 Savage”
21 Savage is hitting his stride just as the year comes to a close, following word that "X" has gone platinum with the release of a behind-the-scenes documentary series debuting today on Tidal. The first episode of “30 Days with 21 Savage” is included above for Tidal subscribers, the series following the burgeoning Atlanta rapper as he tours the country with Young Thug. The two embarked on their HIHORSE'd tour earlier this month, with the above episode starting in Baltimore, where things kicked off. That's also where Thug and André 3000 also connected backstage.
At the moment, 21 Savage currently has three songs on the Billboard Hot 100—“X” featuring Future at No. 36, “Sneakin’” with Drake at No. 44 and “No Heart” at No. 65—and may have more chart-worthy tunes on the way, Young Thug previewing a collaboration between the two while taking part in the Mannequin Challenge earlier this month. In addition to the tour footage, Tidal as well is debuting exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the "X" video shoot.
All of these accomplishments come without major label backing, with 21 saying in a recent Fader interview that he isn't much interested in a traditional deal with a major, though he did say he may seek distribution for his Slaughter Gang crew.
Check the first episode of “30 Days with 21 Savage” above, with the HIHORSE'd tour continuing through to mid-December. Tidal is giving away a limited number of tickets to subscribers, fans able to enter through the streaming service.
