Four years since dropping the original, the rapper and mega-producer have officially announced Savage Mode 2. The sequel to their 2016 album will hit digital retailers on Friday, Oct. 2.
They made the big announcement in a bloody trailer narrated by Morgan Freeman. “So to be in Savage Mode is to go hard, not allowing anything to stop or deter you from your mission,” says the Oscar-winning actor. “Basically, this means when someone is in Savage Mode, they’re not to be fu**ed with.”
Anticipation for the long-rumored project has been building. Earlier this month, fans launched a Change.org petition for the album, which garnered over 8,000 signatures before it ended.
The original Savage Mode was released in 2016 and was certified gold, spawning a pair of platinum hits, “No Heart” and “X” featuring Future. During his L.A. tour stop in July 2019, 21 Savage confirmed that a sequel was on the way.
