21 Savage Confirms ‘Savage Mode 2’ Project
The sequel to 21 Savage and Metro Boomin's classic collab Savage Mode is on the way, the rapper recently announced.
The Atlanta artist is on the first leg of his I Am > I Was Tour along with 2019 XXL Freshman DaBaby. On Friday night (July 19), the show stopped in Los Angeles, where he performed at The Shrine and made a special announcement about his forthcoming project. As the show was closing out, 21 addressed the crowd.
"Los Angeles, California, I want to say R.I.P. to Nipsey Hussle. We lost a real soldier," 21 said as he descended under the stage. "Savage Mode 2 on the muthafuckin way."
The original Savage Mode EP was integral in 21 becoming a known commodity. Released in July 2016, the project was spearheaded by the singles "X" featuring Future and "No Heart." It peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard 200 chart.
In other 21 Savage-related news, last month, he donated $25,000 to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based nonprofit civil rights organization that assists in getting detained immigrants access to legal counsel. The rapper is still dealing with his own ongoing legal battle with ICE, after being arrested in February and accused of being an illegal immigrant.
