Have you heard of 21 Savage? He’s a sick rapper and producer whose real name is Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph. He first caught people’s attention with his mixtape The Slaughter Tape back in 2015, but it was his EP Savage Mode that really put him on the map the following year.

Since then, he’s dropped his first official studio album Issa Album which debuted at #2 on the Billboard chart. Plus, he’s worked with some major names and even won a Grammy – this guy knows how to bring the heat!

So, I’ve put together a list of my favorite 21 Savage tracks that you need to check out ASAP. Let’s get into it!

10. a lot (Feat. J. Cole)

Let’s talk about the first track from 21 Savage’s album, I Am > I Was, called ‘a lot’ featuring J. Cole. This song really sets the mood for the rest of the album and takes you on a journey of self-discovery. The beat is pretty trippy and funky, which adds to the overall vibe of the track.

The lyrics are simple but meaningful, and J. Cole’s feature on this song is just flawless. It’s no wonder that this track became an instant hit. 21 Savage touches on the dark times and struggles he’s faced, but also highlights the progress he’s made. It’s really cool how he manages to be sincere while still being able to flow over such a great beat.

9. Bank Account

If you’re a fan of hip-hop, chances are you’ve heard 21 Savage’s hit song “Bank Account”. This track from his first studio album Issa Album is the most-streamed song on Spotify and for good reason – it’s catchy, it’s confident, and it’s a crowd favorite.

What sets “Bank Account” apart from other rap songs about wealth is the way 21 Savage delivers his lyrics. While the words themselves might seem like just another boastful anthem, his almost deadpan delivery over a driving beat adds a layer of depth and complexity to the song.

Plus, let’s not forget the music itself – with a classic guitar riff, snappy snares, and a powerful bass, “Bank Account” is a well-produced banger that’s sure to get you pumped up.

So, whether you’re looking for some inspiration to hustle harder or just need a new addition to your workout playlist, give “Bank Account” a listen and see why it’s one of 21 Savage’s best songs yet.

8. X (Feat. Future)

This track is definitely one of 21 Savage’s best and it’s a great place to start if you’re just getting into his music. The beat is sick and the lyrics are super catchy, plus the feature by Future really takes it to the next level.

Apparently, Fact magazine thought so too because they named it one of the top 20 rap and R&B tracks of 2016. And honestly, I can’t disagree with them. Yeah, it’s mostly just Savage and Future flexing, but they do it so damn well that it’s impossible not to vibe with.

7. No Heart

Did you know that this song was actually almost left off of his EP Savage Mode? It’s true! But thanks to some creative input from producer Metro Boomin, the track made the final cut and went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA.

In fact, the entire Savage Mode EP was a big success, with the album itself earning a gold certification. According to 21 Savage, they worked on the project for so long that there could be multiple different versions floating around out there.

But let’s get back to “No Heart” specifically. This song is an absolute banger, with a cold and dark drill beat that matches 21’s hard-hitting lyrics perfectly. The flow starts off fast and then switches seamlessly, making for a truly impressive performance.

Honestly, the beat alone is enough to get you hyped up, but when you add in 21 Savage’s killer rapping skills, it’s no wonder this song has become such a fan favorite.

6. Immortal by 21 Savage

This song is pretty special because it made it into the artist’s top 10 list, even though it’s just a standalone single. Some fans might argue that the lyrics aren’t anything too special or unique, but everyone seems to agree that the clean instrumentals and incredible flow are what make this song stand out – not to mention that bass.

You might recognize “Immortal” from its appearance in the trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, but it’s still an underrated gem that deserves more attention. The beat is what really shines in this song and it’s an absolute banger, especially as the title track of the album. So next time you’re looking for some music to get you hyped up, give “Immortal” a listen and see for yourself why it’s worth remembering.

5. Runnin

Savage Mode II’s debut single “Runnin” is fire! This track really hits hard with its haunting beat that flows so smoothly. Plus, they really know how to finesse things up with Diana Ross’s “I Thought It Took a Little Time” sampling, which adds that extra touch of class.

If you’re into his original style and subject matter, you’ll love this track. “Runnin” sets the tone for the rest of the album, which goes back to the roots of what made him famous. And just like the other tracks on the album, it ends with Morgan Freeman’s dope narration. He asks us, “Are things better or worse the second time around? Can we really do anything more than once?” These deep questions make us think about our lives and the choices we make.

Overall, if you haven’t checked out “Runnin” yet, you’re missing out. This track is a banger that will get you hyped and keep you coming back for more.

4. ball w/o you

Let’s talk about 21 Savage’s track “Ball w/o You.” Even though it has an upbeat tempo, the song is actually pretty introspective. On his album “I Am > I Was,” the rapper takes a step back from the rougher parts of his life and explores the emotions surrounding a past relationship that’s now lost.

In the song, 21 Savage touches on themes of betrayal, love, and loyalty. He questions his own capacity to love and whether it even matters in the grand scheme of things. Fans may have speculated that the song was inspired by his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, but the rapper himself denies it. He clarifies that the song is more about relationships in general, and that he and Rose are on good terms.

Overall, “Ball w/o You” offers a unique perspective on love and loss, and shows a different side to 21 Savage’s music.

3. Glock In My Lap

If you haven’t heard “Glock in My Lap” from Savage Mode II yet, you’re in for a treat. This track has been getting tons of love from fans and critics alike, and it’s not hard to see why. The beat is downright sinister, and the way the orchestral pieces are layered on top just adds to the vibe.

But it’s not just the music that’s killer. The lyrics are deadly too, and the music video is something else. Who doesn’t love a chainsaw-wielding maniac who’s no match for the rappers? It’s the perfect complement to the song.

There’s no doubt in our minds that “Glock in My Lap” is one of 21 Savage’s best songs ever. If you haven’t checked it out yet, what are you waiting for? Give it a listen and get ready to feel sinister.

2. Rich Nigga Shit (Feat. Young Thug)

This track delivers a unique sound that’ll get your toes tapping.

You’ll notice some interesting elements in this song, like the addition of a fiddle. Who would’ve thought? The synth and baseline work together perfectly to create a lively beat that’ll make you want to dance.

The best part? The lyrics aren’t as serious or dark as some of his other songs. Young Thug’s feature on this track is also worth mentioning – he never disappoints. It almost sounds like a live band performance, and we love how unique it is.

We’ve got to hand it to 21 Savage, who always brings something fresh to the table with each song. He’s on top of his game in “Rich Nigga Shit,” showcasing his lyrical prowess with tons of similes and metaphors.

1. Numb

This song might not be the flashiest or most complex track, but it’s definitely a fan favorite. And you know what? It’s easy to see why. The message of change and growth, of coming out of a dark place, is something that a lot of us can relate to.

Sure, 21 Savage might insist that the lyrics are just wordplay and that he was happy before he made it big, but that doesn’t detract from the impact of the song. It’s one of those tracks that just leaves you in awe of how good it is.
