21 Savage and Metro Boomin are finally ready to give us, Savage Mode 2.
At the end of his performance in Los Angeles, 21 Savage brought out producer Metro Boomin to end the show with him. The two have worked together several times in the past, including their 2016 mixtape Savage Mode. And it looks like the duo isn’t done yet. As the two were wrapping up his set for the night, 21 Savage thanked the LA crowd before shouting out a “RIP” to the late west coast rapper Nipsey Hussle.
In a video that’s been buzzing around the internet, you can hear the ATL/UK rapper scream “Savage Mode 2 is on the mother f**kin way!,” just as he exited the stage.

Savage Mode went certified gold by the RIAA according to Billboard, and featured standout hits like “X” featuring Future and “No Heart.” 21 Savage teased sequel to the project in a 2016 interview with the Fader, claiming he and Metro Boomin had 20 to 30 songs left in the vault.
New music from 21 would be great, but some of us are still bumping his December 2018 album I am > I was. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 charts, a first for the 26-year-old rapper. It’s also good to see 21 Savage performing and dropping music amidst an on-going deportation case after ICE held him in detention back in February. ICE officials revealed that the rapper is a United Kingdom citizen who overstayed his visa when he entered the United States in 2005, news that came as a shock to the hip-hop community.
21 Savage and Metro Boomin dropped a single together in January 2018 called “Pause,” a song that was previewed in 2015.
