21 Savage and Metro Boomin Get Turned Into Life-Size Sculptures
There's no question of how impactful 21 Savage and Metro Boomin have been in hip-hop this year, and now the Atlanta rapper and producer are being immortalized in stone.
The Savage Mode collaborators are being immortalized as life-size sculptures for RapCaviar's Pantheon this year. RapCaviar selected 21 and Metro, along with CTRL singer SZA, to be turned into statues for an art exhibit, which will reportedly be on display at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City starting tomorrow (Dec. 8).
The streaming service deems 21 Savage as The Warrior, Metro as The Architect and SZA as The Mold-Breaker, which follows in the footsteps of original sculptures of Gods created during the Ancient Rome era.
Each sculpture features the artist's signature aspects of their brand, which fans know and love, such as Savage having his infamous knife by his side and Metro standing over a list of his biggest hit records with a flute.
Director X created a visual to showcase the artwork, recruiting Pharrell to narrate the commentary. Skateboard P describes the influence of each breakout artist as their sculpture is unveiled during the creation process. Scenes show Kuka robotic arms sculpting the statues at Neoset Designs over the course of 15 days.
