On the 7th of July, 21 Savage dropped his highly anticipated second album, “Issa.” And before you get your hopes up: NO, the song “ISSA” with Drake and Young Thug is not on there. Some of the beats on tracks on this album was produced by Wheezy, Pierre Bourne, Southside, DJ Mustard, Metro Boomin, etc. Now you see names like Metro Boomin and Southside and you’re like “we’re about to get a lit album.” That’s unfortunately not the case, 21 Savage didn’t necessarily impress me. His album wasn’t a disappointment, it’s a good album, but I don’t think its in comparison to his first album “Savage Mode.” I was expecting more of his sinister, rude lyrics. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t bad I do enjoy the album . Some of my favorite songs on there are “FaceTime,” “Baby Girl,” and “Special.” It’s just different going from hearing gun shots in the background of his songs to not hearing so much violence. I mean, in all honestly we began liking 21 because of how much of a savage he is.

21’s album doesn’t feature any other artists so don’t expect any songs with features. I feel like his debut album was more of him trying to build up his fan base with hype-based songs; whereas with this album, he’s trying to get his audience to hear the real him. The album just dropped yesterday, but I know for sure the songs will grow on everyone if they haven’t begun to anyway. Give it a listen, and let me know what you think
