    The highly anticipated American Dream by 21 Savage released January 12, 2024. It was released through Epic Records and Slaughter Gang Entertainment on all streaming platforms. The album consists of 15 songs with many popular artists as features. Some of this artist features include: Doja cat, Young Thug, Metro Boomin, Lil Durk, Travis Scott, Summer walkers, Brent Faiyaz, Burna Boy, Mikky Ekko, and Mariah the Scientist. In its opening week the album received 133,000 sales

    (TMZ) This was 21 Savage’s highest first week sale as a solo artist.

    21 Savage’s new album, “The American Dream,” is a return to form for the Atlanta rapper. After his second album, “I Am > I Was,” was met with mixed reviews, many fans were wondering if 21 Savage could still deliver the same quality of music that he had in his early days. With “The American Dream,” 21 Savage proves that he’s still one of the best rappers in the game.

    The album is a well crafted project that showcases 21 Savage’s abilities to still provide great music even as an older artist. He raps about everything from his upbringing in Atlanta to his rise to fame, and he does it with a level of authenticity and emotion that is unmatched by many other artists in the rap game. The production on the album is also top notch, with beats from some of the best producers in the game, such as Metro Boomin, Southside, and DJ Mustard.

    Overall, “The American Dream” is a strong album from 21 Savage. It’s a must listen for fans of the rapper,  it’s sure to win over new listeners as well. It has definitely won us over and has been on repeat for both of us. We recommend this album to anyone who has an interest in drill/ hard rap.
