TRACK: ‘Ocean Drive’ – 21 Savage (Prod. Metro Boomin)

Massive props to this cut from 21 Savage’s Metro Boomin-produced album. This is, in my opinion, one of Young Metro’s best work to date, which, suprisingly, I liked better than his work in Future’s Evol. This just took me aback even though 21 Savage has never struck me as a fancy rapper head-on, his violence-riddled life rendering his lyrics autobiographical. An affecting work of potent lyricism swathed in hazy, eerie production, Ocean Drive is a soothing display of 21 Savage’s otherwise hardened and impassive persona.
