Desiigner + 21 Savage Call Out Biters
This week, 21 Savage didn’t hold back on calling out some of his hip-hop peers. Savage specifically checked unnamed rap artists for using his signature style in songs.
“I need 50% of every song that come out with a yessirskiii hook y’all getting outrageous with da biting I gotta get a rabies shot at dis point” -21 Savage’s Twitter
New York rapper Desiigner quoted Sav and also said people have jacked his style without permission.
The Internet has already started putting the pieces together. People believe Savage specifically referenced rap stars Lil Pump and Doe Boy for using his signature phrase.
21 Savage’s Huge First-Week Projections
Based on early estimates, 21 and producer Metro Boomin are flirting with nearly 200,000 sold copies of their new Savage Mode 2 album after just 7 days of availability. Rap crooner Bryson Tiller‘s new A N N I V E R S A R Y album is expected to secure over 75,000 copies following its surprise release.
21 Savage and Metro Boomin will easily take the #1 spot on next Friday’s HITSTop 50. Epic shares this release with Republic, adding yet another #1 to the latter’s impressive 2020 run. Savage Mode II will log the largest weekly total yet for 21 Savage, whose best start hitherto was in December 2018, when I Am > I Wasopened with 131k. This is Epic’s second #1 of the year following Future’s High Off Life, which debuted with 153k in May. Interscope‘s distaff K-Pop group BLACKPINK also appear headed for a six-digit bow.
