Atlanta rapper 21 Savage is cooking up perfection. As fans await the release of his highly-anticipated Savage Mode 2 project with Metro Boomin, he’s explaining its delay.

Perfect Savage

Silent Mode

21 isn’t putting any attention into the buzz surrounding rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine. The hip-hop star recently fired some direct shots and called out people going into his Instagram Live broadcast bringing up Tek’s name. Instead of name-dropping him, Savage referenced 6ix9ine’s controversial cooperation with law enforcement in a federal drug racketeering case and his perception as a snitch.

“Eh man, don’t get on here. Don’t get on here commenting about no rat. Straight up. I’m with pest control. We don’t f*ck with no rodents, roaches, ants, rats, all that type of sh*t there, don’t get on my Live with that sh*t. Straight up, man. Get the f*ck off my Live. Go on somebody else Live with that sh*t. I ain’t too tough to speak on other n*gga’s sh*t.”

Metro is really out here cooking up. The hip-hop star has teased fans about the status of the new audio fire from himself and Savage. Recently, he jumped on Twitter with a shot of himself alongside Savage. He also joked about living in a time when you have to question anyone in the studio caught coughing.

Before You Go

In mid-March 2020, Savage saluted his day ones for having patience with him. The message came after initial plans to possibly drop Savage Mode 2 were delayed because of the coronavirus epidemic.

“I love my fans they patient like no other. I got y’all!!!!”
