21 Savage and Metro Boomin have been teasing their collaborative project for a minute now, and tonight it's finally here. Savage Mode comes packed with nine tracks, with Metro Boomin going in on the production side and 21 Savage doing his thing with the raps. On Wednesday, the pair released the tracklist. Future also makes an appearance.
It's been a very hot year for Metro Boomin. He went super viral with his "If young Metro don't trust you I'm gon' shoot you" tag from Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands (Pt. 1)," inspiring a wave of hilarious Vine videos. His music has also been lighting up the airwaves more than ever; he's worked with everyone from Kanye to Future, Drake, Ty Dolla $ign, ScHoolboy Q, and more this year.
Now, Metro turns his attention to 21 Savage. The fellow ATL-ien has been gaining some major buzz this year. He appeared on XXL's Freshman cover this year, and has linked up with artists like Lil Yachty and Rich the Kid. Savage made some headlines back in March after the NYPD forced his concert to be moved from Manhattan to Brooklyn. He also grabbed some attention last week when he jumped off the stage mid-set to fight someone in the crowd, causing a mass panic and ending the show early. Regardless, the meeting of two major players in the Atlanta scene is sure to cause a stir.
