21 Savage has announced the release date for his long-awaited debut album, Issa. The album will come out July 7, per a post on 21 Savage’s Instagram account.
The 24-year-old Atlanta rapper has been on the come-up for the past couple years. He really broke through in 2016, the year he was named to XXL’s Freshman Class.
In July of last year, he released a joint EP, Savage Mode, with Atlanta producer Metro Boomin. His single “X” off that EP, featuring Future, went platinum. Last year, he also made the cover of Fader.
Savage has two mixtapes, The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King, both released in 2015, but Issa (a play on “it’s a”) will mark his first album.
Savage recently wrapped up the 29-date Issa Tour, which featured Young M.A., Tee Grizzley, and Young Nudy.
