AboutSavage Mode is a collaborative extended play by American rapper 21 Savage and record producer Metro Boomin. It was released on July 15, 2016, via the iTunes Store, Apple Music, Spotify and SoundCloud. The EP was self-released. Rolling Stone included it in its list of the 40 Best Rap Albums of 2016.
Pitchfork Media called the project 21 Savage's "strongest and bleakest work" and praised the "brooding, eerie production" by Metro Boomin. HotNewHipHop stated that "its style unequivocally trumps its substance, which is par for the course in this school of arty street rap, but its form-- a compact, impeccably-curated product-- is sorely missing from the genre." Exclaim! called the album "a grim, pearl clutching narrative straight from the South." In a positive review, Craig Jenkins of Vulture called it "gleefully ultraviolent and pridefully indulgent," stating that "this music is built from the same casual hopelessness that shocks us cold whenever we awake to fresh news of mass murder or police brutality."
