Issa Ranking Of 21 Savage's Best Features

Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, better known as 21 Savage, is no stranger to the rap game. He made a name for himself in his "hometown" of Atlanta in 2015 with his mixtape, "The Slaughter Tape" (nice try, 21 Savage, we know you're originally from England). His first studio album "Issa Album" reigned as second on the Billboard Top 200 in 2017 with one top hit "Bank Account." 21 Savage's mysteriously boyish demeanor, quirky ad-libs, and fresh sound quickly drew a large fan base. He's stayed prominent in the limelight in the meantime, releasing multiple albums and popping up on popular songs everywhere. It's nearly impossible to chronologically rank which of his songs are the best due to their flawless execution and musicality of the lyrics, so we'll just rank some songs that he's a feature in.

"Bartier Cardi" - Cardi B

21 Savage effortlessly embodies the savagery Cardi B planned to dish out in her second chart-topping single. His cocky personality matches Cardi B's flamboyant aura to create a perfect mixture of attitude. This song has, in my opinion, the best line in all of the rap music, "Tell the waitress I ain't tippin', I like hot sauce on my chicken." Being a hot sauce connoisseur myself, I really am a fan of this line.

"NC-17" - Travis Scott

This song is featured on Travis Scott's newest album "Astroworld." 21's verse starts off with a very playful, boyish beat, but the lyrics turn more sinister as the verse progresses. He doesn't hype up only himself and his actions in the verse, he flexes his dog's clout briefly in one line saying, "I done got so rich I Saint Laurent my dogs now."

"rockstar" - Post Malone

Post Malone's first single off of his newest album, "Beerbongs and Bentleys," went platinum seven times and reigned as #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for both artists following its release — 21 definitely contributed to its success. The song has a funky beat that perfectly meshes the two completely different styles of Post Malone and 21 Savage. 21 shows his love for having 6 cars in this song including, "Savage why you got a 12 car garage and you only got 6 cars?"

"BBO (Bad Bitches Only)" - Migos

Migos' sophomore album "Culture II" was star-studded with great features, including 21 Savage. "BBO" was a fan-favorite since the album's release. 21 Savage can be found on the chorus of the song instead of a whole verse, which is pretty different for Migos. He flexes his jewelry with the line, "Whole pointers 'round my neck, lookin' like a lighthouse."

"Pass Out" - Quavo

"Pass Out" is definitely one of the best collaborative works on Quavo's first album "Quavo Huncho." 21's trademark ad-libs work well with Quavo's flow and catchy beats. The lyrics are a string of one-liners that reference everybody who is everybody including, "I'm not Will Smith but I'm tryna get jiggy. I can show you how to make a band like Diddy." This is undeniably my favorite 21 verse I have heard since its release in the summer.

"Sneakin" - Drake

The Apple Music exclusive single produced by London on da Track is no stranger to this list. Being released alongside "Fake Love" and "Two Birds, One Stone," Sneakin is pretty easy to forget about since it's no longer available on Spotify, but 21's verse cannot go unmentioned. With the flawless entrance "Baby, I'm a savage, I ain't romantic," 21 gets us hooked into his verse about flexing all his cash and living a lavish life.

"Undefeated" - A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie

A Boogie's catchy, melodic hook feeds into 21 Savage's dark and twisted verse. A Boogie said he had a bunch of famous rappers asked him for this feature, but he believed 21's flow would mesh the best. There's a lot of quotable lyrics in this song, including "Riding in a Hellcat, ain't no catchin' up to me."

"The Race (Remix)" - Tay-K

It would be a crime not to give this remix some love (LOL because Tay-K was on the run from the cops). This song generated a lot of coverage by the media due to the crazy backstory behind it. A lot of rappers made their own remixes including Lil Yachty and YBN Namir. 21 Savage took this opportunity to make this bad situation good and rap about the positive turn his life has taken. His lyrics include, "My street cred platinum, ain't nothin' fake. Pulled up to the **** Walk with a K. You a internet gangster, I'm a ape." These lyrics show how hard 21 Savage has been working as well as showcasing his successes.

"Pull Up N Wreck" - Metro Boomin & Big Sean

Big Sean, the self-appointed king of spitting bars, struck out on this song with 21 Savage. 21's aggressive verse highlights his talents and puts him up to the same level as the more established rapper, Big Sean. Nonetheless, Big Sean doesn't steal any of 21's clout in this song. It shows in verses such as, "All these diamonds dripping, now she wanna bite me. She broke up with that *****, now he wanna fight me."

"Rover 2.0" - BlocBoy JB

The remix of the mainstream hit "Rover" shows 21 Savage's cool side mixed with JB's unmatched energy. His whole verse seems as if 21 is shooting a warning shot at an unnamed rival. Including the line, "Salt kills snails, not players," he is really trying to instill fear in the face of this rival, and they better run while they're ahead!

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

3854

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

2048

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

20806

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.

1306

It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

These 10 Oversized Graphic Tees Are JUST As Cute As Urban Outfitters — And They're All Under $30

There is never a bad time to get some new oversized graphic tees, especially when they're all under $30.

While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
