21 Savage Reveals Cover, Release Date for ‘Issa Album’
The summer may have just started but 21 Savage has been heating up all 2017. Now, he's revealed the front cover for his upcoming major label debut album Issa Album as well as its release date: July 7.
21 doesn't have the deepest of catalogs, but his guest features game and ability to capitalize on his lane in hip-hop has created a high demand for him at festival and streams for his music.
The artwork for Issa Album is very similar to the style of his new animated show with WeBuyGold. It's highly likely that the same artist worked on both the artwork and cartoon. This also invites the idea that the six episode series will tie into the theme of the album in some way. The aesthetic of both is an interesting switch up from the previous dark and violent one he was more closely associated with.
It's very likely that once he drops the album, he'll announce a new tour in support of the LP. He's already been on a healthy touring schedule, joining Young Thug on the HIHORSE'd tour last year and taking Young M.A and Tee Grizzley on his own Issa Tour this year.
21 will undoubtedly be aiming for big numbers with this new album as his album with Metro Boomin Savage Mode went gold and his single "Red Opps" earned him his third platinum plaque. Outside of the booth, he's also been seen multiple times now with Amber Rose, causing many to believe they're now an item.
