Atlanta rapper 21 Savage and Metro Boomin are keeping the spotlight on their Savage Mode II album. The hip-hop pair have now come through on a chopped and screwed version of the chart-topping studio effort.
Savage Mode II Chopped & Screwed
After some initial weekend teasing, Sav and Metro have delivered on the goods. They relied on Texas native OG Ron C to put his signature touch on the new album.
The instant classic, SAVAGE MODE II, further cements itself as the best and most culturally relevant album of 2020 by getting the chopped and screwed treatment. Remixed by the legendary Houston DJ, OG RON C, the chopped and screwed version of the album, was announced Sunday, October 18th by Triple 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul on his Instagram and twitter and is available at all DSP’s. The hits don’t stop for 21 Savage, who clinched the #1 album in the country—Savage Mode II with Metro Boomin. It launched 13 songs into the Billboard Hot 100 with two—“Runnin” and “Mr. Right Now” [feat. Drake]—in the Top 10 as well as having every song on the album chart on the Hot 100.
