    He’s a solid RAPPER through and through and in an era of singers I’m always going to appreciate that, but if I said I could ignore the banality of “Savage Mode II” lyrically I’d be lying.

  • Pitchfork

    The sequel to the canonical Atlanta mixtape is meant to be a legacy-defining stamp, but despite all its glossy guest stars (Morgan Freeman!), it never rises above “just fine.”

  • Slant Magazine

    The album is a ratification of “bigger and better,” an example of steady improvement through impeccable craft.

    21 Savage and Metro Boomin do not miss when they link up. They compliment each other extremely well and clearly understand how to make well-structured albums. With that being said, SAVAGE MODE II is a body of work that sounds exactly how I thought it would.

    We all know that many sequel projects don’t exactly live up to the hype of the predecessor, but this is definitely an exception. 21’s maturity is very much present on here as it was on his last full-length album about 2 years ago & Metro Boomin’ manages to remind listeners of his place as one of the greatest producers in the trap subgenre.

    "Savage Mode II" is a glorious expansion of the undeniable chemistry that Metro Boomin & 21 Savage introduced four years ago, further cementing their status in the pantheon of rapper-producer duos.

  • Edinboro Now

    Nearly four years of waiting for “Savage Mode II” proved to be pointless. The album was disappointing and fell short of every expectation I had going in. While there were a few salvageable songs here, most were a lost cause.

    Yes, Savage Mode II may be too preachy or consist of rather bland concepts. Even so, it gave the fans something they can both dance and cry to. It gave them a concept album that will stay relevant for years to come.

    Like most sequels, ‘Savage Mode II’ is an underwhelming blockbuster.

  • Clash Magazine

    ‘Savage Mode 2’ matches ruthless entertainment to phenomenal artistry, a collaboration that works on a number of levels. Once more exposing fresh layers to 21 Savage and Metro Boomin, hopefully it won’t take another four years for a third instalment.

    Savage Mode II is a rare instance of the sequel being WAY better than the original.

  • Wavypack

    Overall, “Savage Mode II” is easily my favorite trap album of the year. I have a hard time imagining who could top it in the next 2 months. Metro Boomin is doing God’s work in the genre as a producer and on this album, 21 Savage doesn’t struggle to acclimate.
