Well look what we have here. Way back in 2015, 21 Savage first previewed a song with Metro Boomin on his Instagram page called “Pause,” which many people thought at the time would see life on their collaborative tape Savage Mode, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. So while the song has been pretty much an after thought ever since and presumed to be lost in the archives, WSHH comes through today and resurfaces the record in its entirety for our listening pleasure.
Going in over the Metro Boomin production, 21 Savage delivers a mean ass street record that finds him rapping about robbin’ back in the day, getting paper, and having shooters by his side. It’s pretty much your stereotypical 21 record to say the least, and that’s not a bad thing.
Niggas callin’ 12, niggas callin’ 12 (21)
We keep it in the street, we don’t want your ass in jail (bitch)
I got clientele off that triple beam scale
Got his ass killed tryna run off with a bail (21)
