21 Savage's got jokes.
On Thursday afternoon, the ATL rapper unveiled the official cover art for his upcoming album I Am > I Was. The unveiling led many fans to believe that the project would finally arrive at midnight, just as his previous "12-7-18" tweet suggested. Well, the clock hit 12 a.m., and the album was nowhere to be found. 21 jokingly addressed the false alarm on social media:
Though we didn't receive a new music, 21 didn't leave fans completely hanging. Shortly after midnight, the rapper announced the I Am > I Was would arrive in just a couple of weeks.
I Am > I Was will mark 21's second solo studio album, and his first full-length release since 2017's Without Warning with Metro Boomin and Offset.
Just last month, the Issa rapper hit up Instagram to provide a little taste of what he had in store.
"I’m going back gangsta," he says. "I’m going back to what brought me in the door… I wanna get back on some gangsta shit 'cause I feel like everybody rap about money and cars all day. Like they say I rap about too much guns and shit, but that's what the hell be going on. That's what really be going on, like, in real life."
I Am > I Was is expected to drop Dec. 21. Be sure to stay tuned as more details are revealed.
