21 Savage “Lit” After Receiving Jay Z Acknowledgement on, “The Shining”
21 Savage is the hottest new act in music today. He has sold out shows across the country, co-signs from Future, Gucci Mane, Drake, and more, and now he has a reference from the God MC himself, Jay Z on the new DJ Khaled track, “The Shining”.
In the verse, Jay Z uses 21’s signature sound and ab-lib rhyming, “21 grammys, I’m a savage nigga.”
Like fans, the Atlanta recording artist heard the track the night of the Grammys and his reaction was “Lit”, as he referred in the Snapchat post he made that DJ Khaled received. The track also features Jay Z’s wife Beyonce, who sings the hook and handles the first verse.
DJ Khaled posted 21’s reaction in an instagram post with the following message shown below:
21 Savage rose to the top of Hip-Hop with his Metro Boomin’-produced EP, ‘Savage Mode’. The EP features 21’s first hits, “X” featuring Future and “Savage Mode”. 21 Savage was recently featured on the Noisey documentary showcasing the new Atlanta elite artists including Migos and Lil Yachty.
